Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood are a country power couple with both artists making a pretty penny.
But which of the two stars is worth more?
Garth Brooks’ Country Cash
Garth Brooks’ net worth is currently $400 million, which is not too shabby, to say the least. However, that number is a combined net worth between Brooks and his wife, Trisha Yearwood. The majority of the couple’s money comes from Garth Brooks’ career, raking in $300 to $350 million.
The 59-year-old country artist has six albums that are certified diamond. He has sold more than 200 million albums worldwide, making Brooks one of the most successful and popular performers in history. According to the Recording Industry Association of America, he is the best-selling solo album artist in the United States with 148 million domestic units sold, ahead of Elvis Presley. The Beatles is the only band to beat Garth Brooks in total overall album sales.
At times, Brooks has been known to be one of the highest-paid touring performers grossing a yearly salary of $90 million. The singer is also a real estate owner in several major cities, such as Tulsa, OK, Nashville, TN, and Malibu, CA.
Husband and Wife Share Their Earnings
On December 10, 2005, Brooks married his second and current wife, fellow country singer Trisha Yearwood.
In 2008, Trisha and Garth purchased a Miami home for around $5 million. Eight years later, it was reported that it had sold for $7 million, leaving them with an extra $2 million profit.
Since Yearwood and Brooks have a combined net worth of $400 million together, it’s hard to know the exact details of who has what, although Brooks appears to be the main breadwinner.
Trisha Yearwood Takes on Entertainment Industry
Trisha Yearwood is a success in her own right. She is a top country artist who has sold more than 15 million records throughout her career and has been the recipient of two Grammys and other awards.
Yearwood is now the host of her very own popular cooking show, Trisha’s Southern Kitchen. The popular show airs on the Food Network. It has been so well-received that Yearwood was the recipient of an Emmy award. The star has merged into many different areas of the entertainment industry, including television and books, with many of those being her special cookbooks.
The entertainer has also dealt with investing in property. After the 56-year-old’s divorce from her ex-husband in 1991, Yearwood purchased a 6,500-square-foot home in Nashville. The property includes five bedrooms, six baths, a swimming pool, and it sits on four acres of land. She listed it for $2.2 million when selling the space, and more than doubled her profits from the original price she bought it for.
Although it seems that Garth Brooks is the cash cow of this country couple, but Trisha Yearwood brings in the bacon, as well.
