Garth Brooks is a real country gentleman when it comes to keeping his word.
He’s made good on a promise he made to wife Trisha Yearwood eight years ago, to move from the couple’s country mansion in Owasso, Oklahoma, back to Nashville once his youngest child graduated from high school.
And he put their $3.5 million home up for sale last year to keep his word!
When Brooks, 53, and 50 year old Trisha married on December 10, 2005 he was a divorced dad with three young daughters.
Garth and Trisha wanted to make their home in Tennessee, but when his ex wife Sandy Mahl moved the kids from Georgia to Oklahoma, he knew he and Trisha had to follow.
‘When Garth and his then wife, Sandy, divorced after 15 years of marriage, Garth continued to put his girls first,’ says a source. ‘He adores his children, and there was no way he wasn’t going to be a part of his daughter’s lives on a daily basis.
Trisha just didn’t know how they could live in Oklahoma and still manage their careers, which centered around the music industry in Nashville. But Garth was adamant that he needed to be near his children in Owasso.
Sources say Trisha is extremely close to the girls, including 22 year old Taylor, who Trisha taught to cook, Allie, 18 and 20 year old August who made Garth a Grandfather in July of 2013 when she and her boyfriend welcomed a baby girl they named Karolynn.
‘Trisha has always gotten along great with Garth’s girls,’ adds the source. And after the move to Oklahoma, the girls lived part time with their mom and part time with Garth and Trisha.’
