Net Worth
For many artists who have been around as long as Garth has, the incredible amount of wealth that they have earned comes entirely from their early years as a performer.

While in his senior year in college, Garth met his first wife, Sandy Mahl. Garth met Mahl when he was working as a bouncer at a bar in Stillwater.

Mahl got into a fight with another woman in the bathroom and Garth was called to help her out when Sandy’s hand got stuck in the wood paneling after Mahl threw a punch.

Sandy would be at Garth’s side through the greatest highs of his career as a country artist, and he has often given her credit for helping him be able to go out and fight for a career in music while she held down a day job.

Together, Mahl and Brooks had three daughters: Taylor Mayne Pearl Brooks, August Anna Brooks and Allie Colleen Brooks. August has since had two children, making Brooks a grandfather.

Brooks loved being a father, but often found that his career demanded too much of his attention. To solve that problem, he announced his “retirement” from music in 2000.

Brooks moved from Nashville back to Oklahoma and was determined to stay there until his youngest graduated high school.

Four years later, Garth married his second wife, Trisha Yearwood. The marriage was Trisha’s third. Though the two of them have no children together, Trisha did play a role in raising Taylor, August and Allie together.
