Trisha Yearwood may not have her own children, but she is a “bonus mom” to Garth Brooks’ kids

Garth Brooks was married to Sandy Mahl on May 24, 1986, and the couple spent over 15 years together. They met in a bar near the campus of Oklahoma State University, the college they both attended. Brooks was acting as a bouncer at the bar, and he was introduced to Mahl when breaking up a fight she was involved in.

In 2001, Brooks and Mahl decided to separate. The parents of three claimed that Brooks’ busy career was to blame for the divorce. Mahl explained that her former husband would often be gone for eight to ten weeks at a time, and then would be overrun with various shows, parties, award ceremonies, and other events that kept him away from home.

Despite the divorce and distance between the former couple, they remain good friends. Brooks even labels Mahl as “phenomenal” in his documentary, “The Road I’m On.” As recently as 2019, the star told US Weekly,

“What really surprised me was Sandy, the girls’ mom. She was phenomenal.”

Brooks has acknowledged that his absence during their marriage likely meant that he missed a lot that Mahl was trying to tell him.
