Trisha Yearwood Shares Why a Shopping Cart Is the Most Romantic Gift Garth Brooks Has Given Her

  • In a new interview, Trisha Yearwood shared the most touching gift her husband, Garth Brooks, has ever given her.
  • “A grocery cart—I know, sounds really romantic,” Yearwood said. Brooks went above and beyond to find one with sentimental value.
  • “He will think about something and maybe plan it all year long,” Yearwood said.

Somehow, the holidays are just around the corner, which means it’s time to start thinking about gifts. Trisha Yearwood and Garth Brooks sure are, and during a recent interview on Taste of Country Nights, per The Boot, Yearwood shared the most touching gift her husband has ever given her. Believe it or not, it’s not as glamorous as you might expect.

“A grocery cart—I know, sounds really romantic,” the “Walkaway Joe” singer revealed. “But the reason that it is romantic is, we were talking about how when you get home with your groceries and you’re making trips, carrying ‘em all in, it’s like, wouldn’t it be so cool if you had a cart at home?”

She has a point—it’s honestly a great idea. And although Brooks could’ve gotten her any old shopping cart, he didn’t. He went above and beyond to find one with sentimental value.

“Well, he called my mom,” Yearwood recalled, and asked her about a store that she used to frequent in her hometown of Monticello, Georgia. “It was called Red and White—it’s no longer in business,” she explained. “But [he asked], ‘Could we get a grocery cart from there, you think?’ So [Mom] went and talked to the guy who used to run the place and

Julianne Hough Steps Out After Filing for Divorce From Brooks Laich

Keeping busy. Julianne Hough was spotted out for the first time since filing for divorce from Brooks Laich five months after their split.

The Dancing With the Stars alum, 32, was seen heading to work out at a studio in Los Angeles on Thursday, November 5, without her wedding ring, in photos published by the Daily Mail. Hough wore a cropped black sweatshirt and leggings with matching sneakers and a Chanel purse.

One day later, the Footloose star broke her social media silence when she chronicled her work out session with brother Derek Hough via her Instagram Story. Julianne shared a selfie in a gray sports bra and leggings and also posted a video of herself balancing on a wooden board.

In another clip, the Rock of Ages star filmed herself lying on her back as she stretched her legs in the air.

Julianne filed for divorce from Laich, 37, on Monday, November 2. The pair — who tied the knot in July 2017 — announced their separation in May.

“We have lovingly and carefully taken the time we have needed to arrive at our decision to separate,” they said in a joint statement at the time. “We share an abundance of love and respect for one another and will continue to lead with our hearts from that place. We kindly request your compassion and respect for our privacy moving forward.”

In August, the duo sparked reconciliation rumors when they were spotted at lunch. One month later, a source told Us Weekly that Julianne and the former NHL player were “giving things another shot.”

A second source told Us on Wednesday, November 4, that the former couple “had a lot of back-and-forth moments” about their relationship.

“When they took time apart, Julianne was heavily involved with Kinrgy, and because Brooks helped her develop it, they continued to stay in touch and also were connected because they share the same friend group,” the insider explained. “They missed each other and ended up hooking up a few times during their breakup and have tried to sort out their marriage and business commitments.”

However, the source noted that Julianne and the Canada native “just can’t get past their problems,” despite their efforts.

“Julianne had a dinner party with friends a few months ago, which Brooks came to,” the insider said. “They were trying to be lovey-dovey with each other and have a good night with a few friends, but Brooks ended up bringing up some of their issues in front of everyone and it became a big fight.”

As Julianne has focused on working out amid their split, Laich has turned to prayer. The athlete opened up about his coping mechanisms on the Monday, November 2, episode of his “How Men Think” podcast.

“I also say I’m grateful for the blessings and the challenges in my life,” he said. “I’m grateful that life isn’t just easy. Prayer has been a really big one for me

Why a Shopping Cart from Monticello, Georgia, Was the Most Romantic Gift Garth Brooks Ever Got Trisha Yearwood

With a story like this, who wouldn’t want a shopping cart for Christmas?

Indeed, we still can’t believe what a thoughtful husband Garth Brooks is to his wife of nearly 15 years, Trisha Yearwood, after hearing this sweet tale from Taste of Country. The husband-and-wife duo recently appeared on the outlet’s Taste of Country Nights radio show to catch up on new music and life, when Yearwood opened up about a very special gift.

When asked to discuss the best holiday gift each had ever received from each other, Yearwood dived into discussing this unique present that sits comfortably at the top of her list as the best gift ever.

“I was just talking about one of my favorite [gifts]…The one that we were just discussing is a grocery cart—I know, sounds really romantic. But the reason that it is romantic is we were talking about how when you get home with your groceries, and you’re making trips, carrying ’em all in, it’s like, wouldn’t it be so cool if you had a cart at home?” Yearwood shares with Taste of Country Nights hosts Evan Paul and Amber Atnip.

Here’s where the story gets good: To obtain said grocery cart, Brooks gave Yearwood’s mom, Gwen Yearwood, a buzz. “This was several years ago. And she talks about her hometown, Monticello, Ga., grocery store. It was called Red and White—it’s no longer in business. But [he asked], ‘Could we get a grocery cart from there, you think?'” Eager to help, Yearwood’s mom tracked down the man who ran the supermarket and asked if he had any of the old shopping carts on hand. As luck would have it, he had more than a few to spare.

“[My mom] said, ‘How much would it cost to buy one? Garth wants to give this as a present to Trisha.’ And my dad [the late Jack Yearwod] was a small town, blue jeans banker,” Yearwood recalls. “And the guy said, ‘Oh, I couldn’t charge you anything. Mr. Jack gave me the money to start my business 40 years ago, so it’d be my pleasure.'”

To this day, that very shopping cart remains in the couple’s garage and is the family’s workhorse when it comes to unloading their supermarket haul. We’re sure it makes Yearwood smile every time she uses it and reflects on the story behind it.

“[It’s] such a thoughtful, romantic gift. And that’s just one of, like, a million things. I wish I could be as thoughtful as [Brooks]; I’m workin’ on it,” Yearwood jokes. Ah, who could turn a gift as mundane as a toaster-when-we-were-expecting-an-engagement-ring status offering into something so cherished? Only Garth, only Garth.
