Trisha Yearwood and Garth Brooks would first meet in 1987 while in a recording studio, however, at that time both were well into their first marriages. Trisha had just married her first husband, Christopher Latham, and Garth was going on his second year of marriage to his wife, songwriter Sandy Mahl.
While the pair were both already spoken for, Trisha and Garth would remain friends and musical partners over the years, and in an interview with Country Living, Garth, who is now 58, remembers his first encounter with Trisha being akin to "that feeling when you just meet your wife".
