Trisha Yearwood's husband, Garth Brooks, has been by her side for years.

It's a match made in country music heaven! The story of Trisha and her husband, fellow country musician Garth Brooks, is one that extends long before the two were even officially a couple. Back in 1988, then-budding artists Trisha and Garth met at a recording studio, per Country Thang Daily. The two stars were introduced by songwriter Kent Blazy. Although they were both getting married to other people at the time, they reportedly felt a romantic connection immediately.

Despite those feelings, Trisha and Garth didn't act on them at the time. Instead, Trisha became an opening act for Garth on tour and the two became close friends. However, things changed in 2000 when Garth divorced Sandy Mahl. In 2001, Trisha split from her then-husband, bass player Bobby Reynolds, as well. Afterward, the longtime friends began quietly dating and were first spotted out and about together in 2002.

"You gotta treat it [marriage] like a duet. You gotta harmonize. You gotta make your partner feel like a star," Garth told Ellen DeGeneres of how he and Trisha have made it work ever since tying the knot.
