Garth Brooks has recently opened up about his three daughters during the aftermath of his divorce from his first wife, Sandy Mahl.
Brooks and Sandy Mahl had three daughters – 27 year old Taylor, 25 year old August and 23 year old Allie.
The country singer and Mahl split in 2001 after being married for 14 years.
“I just said goodbye to music, got divorced, moved back to Oklahoma and left Nashville,” he said in a Q&A session in New York while promoting his documentary, ‘The Road I’m On,’ as per Us Weekly. “I was living with three strange women that I did not know. They were 8, 6, and 4. And I was about to get a crash course in females.”
After divorcing with Sandy Mahl, Garth Brooks began dating fellow country singer Trisha Yearwood. Brooks credits Yearwood for ‘helping ease his life.’
“My best friend showed up,” the ‘If Tomorrow Never Comes’ singer recalled. “It was good.”
He explained, “She didn’t have children either. So we were kind of blind leading the blind. I’d never wished divorce on anybody, but three children and three parents worked really well, especially since the girls were all tomboys.”
So they were all at soccer, track and field, softball. Never ever did one of those kids take the field where at least one parent wasn’t in the stands. … I love music to death, really do. But there’s nothing like loving your babies,” he said.
Garth Brooks’ two-part documentary, ‘The Road I’m On,’ begins on A&E Monday, December 2, at 9 p.m. ET.
