Trisha Yearwood And Garth Brooks: Who Makes More Money?

Talk about a power couple. Married in 2005, Trisha Yearwood and Garth Brooks are true country music royalty. Brooks has been a mainstay in Nashville since his first self-titled album was released in 1989, and just one year later, the Oklahoma native's second album, No Fences, spent 23 weeks at the number one spot on the Billboard Top Country Album chart, selling 17 million copies (per Biography). That collection included "Friends in Low Places," which even non-country fans have been known to bellow after a few beers. Just a few years later, in 1991, Yearwood — who had been friends with Brooks, but both singers then had other spouses — became a chart topper herself with "She's in Love with a Boy," among other singles released that year. 


The two country crooners have dominated the music scene as individual artists, as well as performers sharing the stage. Garth has had more platinum albums than Elvis Presley (per Rolling Stone). Yearwood, meanwhile, isn't unfamiliar with that precious metal herself, having gone double platinum with her very first album (per Taste of Country). So of the two celebs, which one is the bigger breadwinner?

Garth Brooks brings in more money Trisha Yearwood

Brooks and Yearwood have a combined net worth of $400 million — around $350 million of that is due to Brooks, who has an annual salary of $90 million, and owns homes in Tulsa, Oklahoma, Nashville, Tennessee, and Malibu, California. Last year, it was rumored that he and Yearwood together purchased Layby Hotel on Holmes Beach on Anna Maria Island, Florida for $8.825 million (per Celebrity Net Worth). One of the highest paid celebrity of all times, Brooks is eclipsed only by The Beatles in total album sales.


Yearwood, though, is certainly no financial lightweight, with a net worth of $40 million, which she's earned not only through music, but her Food Network show, Trisha's Southern Kitchen, which is also quite successful (per CheatSheet). Meanwhile, she's pure royalty to her husband. Brooks' nickname for Trisha is "Queen," and he even called her that in an Instagram post describing their experience at the 2016 Country Music Awards. "Standing next to the QUEEN makes any day a great day, but especially today! love, g," he posted.
