Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood are two of country music's biggest stars today, but their story together began in 1988 when Trisha was hired to sing backup on Garth's debut album. The two then-struggling musicians became instant friends. And a few years later, once Garth hit it big, Trisha joined him on the road as his opening act.
Garth has performed for millions worldwide, selling a record-breaking 100 million albums in 10 years and winning countless awards. And Trisha, who shot to stardom herself with the smash hit "She's in Love with the Boy," has become a multiplatinum success.
Over the years, Garth and Trisha have continued to perform together and support one another through personal highs and lows, including the breakup of Garth's 14-year marriage. In 2001, their friendship blossomed into a real-life love song.
