Garth Brooks Opens Up About Marriage to Trisha Yearwood: “I Never Knew It Could Be Like This”

rs_634x1024-130726163555-634.GBrooks.ms.072613Garth Brooks is a man in love and he doesn’t care who knows it!

When the country superstar sat down with Ellen DeGeneres on the Friday, Nov. 29, episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show, where he couldn’t help but gush about Trisha Yearwood, his wife of almost eight years.

“I’ve got to tell you, I never knew it could be like this,” Brooks said of their marriage. “I never knew that everyday you could wake up and feel like this. And I have God and I have Ms. Yearwood to thank for this.”

Brooks also opened up how he and Yearwood got together as they were both married to other people when they first met. While Brooks split from his college sweetheart, songwriter Sandy Mahl, in 2000, Yearwood had been married twice before (to Chris Latham andRobert Reynolds).

The duo first met in 1987 when Brooks’ friend songwriterKent Blazy introduced them and the star admitted he felt an immediate connection to Yearwood, despite the fact that he was newly married.

“When she left, he goes, ‘What did you think?’ I said, ‘Well, it’s strange, because I felt that feeling like when you just meet your wife, but I’ve been married for 13 months,” he explained.

Soon after his divorce from Mahl, who he has three children with, Brooks began dating Yearwood, his longtime collaborator.

“This was somebody I always enjoyed being around. And we had a lot more in common than I ever dreamed we did. And so we started seeing each other after the divorce,” Brooks revealed to Ellen. “We’d known each other music-wise, but we got to see each other as people. And I’ve got to tell you, if you like her and don’t know her, you’ll love her. If you love her and don’t know her, you’ll worship her. She’s the real deal.”
