Here we are ready to add another headline as Garth revealed that he recently declined his wife’s offer to take his last name.
The powerhouse couple recently celebrated seventeen years together, and Trisha Yearwood’s gift to Garth was an offer to go by Trisha Brooks, finally. She even had all the documents squared away, Garth just had to say “yes” and she would’ve signed on the dotted line.
“She was sweet enough for our anniversary last year to have the documents where her official last name was Brooks. Great gift… I declined it.
Jack Yearwood had two daughters… that Yearwood name is Trisha. So I’d be fine changing my name to Yearwood. Tradition doesn’t count here.”
Aside from the move to honor his father-in-law’s last name, he added that she helps him out on the road quite a bit and he wouldn’t want to diminish her own star power:
“What counts is when you have two celebrities, don’t let one swallow the other.
I’m really, really lucky because, the Vegas residency for example, she’s with us a lot. If you’re out there dying, it’s a one man show… all you say is ladies and gentleman, Trisha Yearwood. “
As the two superstars have curated a career and brand heavily identified with their last names, Garth’s reasoning to keep their identities separate makes total sense.
They have made it seventeen years with the whole world, knowing they are happily married with different last names. Why change it now?
Maybe Trisha would re-offer once the Chris Gaines albums are released. Rocker’s wife… Trisha Gaines has a nice ring to it.
Either way, if there is one thing for sure, the gesture shows their commitment to each other seventeen years later.
I think it’s safe to say, “She’s In Love With the Boy.”
