Garth brooks dating trisha yearwood
Hard to believe it's been nine years since Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood tied the knot in a hush-hush ceremony at the pair's Oklahoma home on December 10, 2005.
The nuptials were in stark contrast to Brooks' very public wedding proposal seven months earlier, which was witnessed by Buck Owens, Merle Haggard, George Jones and hundreds of screaming fans.
Brooks and Yearwood met in Nashville in the mid-Eighties, when they were both struggling demo singers.
As legend has it, they made a pact that the first person to become successful would help the other's career get off the ground.
That surprise engagement took place at Owens' Crystal Palace in Bakersfield, California.
Brooks and his then-girlfriend, Yearwood, were on hand to unveil a bronze likeness of Brooks at the famed music venue.
However, it soon becomes clear to her that her parents' split is permanent when Bill asks Birdee for a divorce.
No word on how this golden couple plans to celebrate its ninth anniversary, but on the 11th, Mr. Brooks (or Miss Yearwood, as Garth refers to the missus) are back on stage for a three-night stand in Little Rock, Arkansas.
Hope Floats is a 1998 American romantic drama film directed by Forest Whitaker and starring Sandra Bullock, Harry Connick Jr., and Gena Rowlands.
Birdee Pruitt (Sandra Bullock) is a Chicago housewife who is invited onto the Toni Post talk show under the pretense of getting a free makeover but instead is ambushed with the revelation that her husband Bill has been having an affair with her best friend Connie (Rosanna Arquette).
Humiliated on national television, Birdee and her precocious daughter Bernice (Mae Whitman) move back to Birdee's hometown of Smithville, Texas, with Birdee's eccentric mother Ramona (Gena Rowlands) and young, imaginative nephew Travis (Cameron Finley), to make a fresh start.
