7. Since the Moment They Met
Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood first met back in 1987 when they recorded a demo together. Brooks told Ellen DeGeneres during an appearance on her show that he felt like she was his wife from the second he first met her. “[Songwriter] Kent Blazy introduced me to Ms. Yearwood, and he goes, ‘I knew you were going to like her,'” Brooks recalled during an appearance on Ellen. “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 said. The timing was never right for these two, but the second they were both available they started dating and have been together ever since.
