Trisha Yearwood Says Step-Daughters Have 'Varied Taste in Music'
With Trisha Yearwood for a step-mom and Garth Brooks for a dad, there is no shortage of country star power on hand for Garth’s three daughters Taylor, 16, August, 15, and Allie, 12 ½. Still, the couple don’t allow their own musical tastes to dictate the preferences of the girls. “It’s probably kind of odd for our children to be in a house with two country artists,” Trisha notes, “but we’ve never said this is what you need to listen to because this is what we do.”
As a result, Taylor, August and Allie — Garth’s children with ex-wife Sandy Mahl — have developed “real varied taste in music,” Trisha reveals, adding:
“They love Taylor Swift of course, but I still love it when we’re in the car and an old country song comes on the radio and they know it. It makes me happy.”
The author of Georgia Cooking in an Oklahoma Kitchen: Recipes from My Family to Yours, Trisha says that family meals remain a priority but with three busy girls all living under the same roof, it’s “sometimes hard to eat together.”
“It’s more like, ‘Here’s what’s going on today, who can make dinner?’ But we really eat home a lot and enjoy eating home cooked meals.”
