Everybody knows that Trisha Yearwood is one-half of one of the most iconic couples in country music. She's married to none other than the great Garth Brooks and she has her own incredible career as a country artist and TV star, which has led to a hefty addition to the couple's combined net worth. 

Patricia Lynn Yearwood grew up in Monticello, Georgia, the daughter of a schoolteacher, Gwendolyn Yearwood, and a banker, Jack Howard Yearwood. She grew up with an appreciation for country music from an early age, regularly performing in school talent shows, at church, and in musicals. After attending the University of Georgia for one year, Yearwood decided to pack her bags for Nashville and pursue a music business degree at Belmont University. 

Following school, an internship at MTM Records turned into a full-time job and gave Yearwood the chance to show off her singing chops as a background vocalist for new artists. She actually formed a friendship with then up and coming artist Garth Brooks while recording with the future superstar. Brooks told her that if he ever made it as a country singer, he would do what he could to help her career. And he stayed true to his word. 

Brooks brought Yearwood on to sing on No Fences, his second album, and even connected her with his producer. After she performed at a showcase for MCA Records, producer Tony Brown helped Yearwood sign her own contract and she became the opening act for Brooks' 1991 tour.

Yearwood's first album was released the same year. Her debut single, "She's in Love with the Boy," hit number one on the country charts. With the help of a few more hit singles, "Like We Never Had a Broken Heart," "The Woman Before Me" and "That's What I Like About You," her debut album became double platinum. So far, she's won 3 Grammy Awards, 3 Academy of Country Music Awards, and 3 CMA Awards.

Outside of her career as a successful recording artist, Yearwood became a celebrity chef with her own Food Network series, Trisha's Southern Kitchen, which won an Emmy Award. She's also released three cookbooks -- Georgia Cooking in an Oklahoma Kitchen, Home Cooking with Trisha Yearwood, and Trisha's Table.

Trisha Yearwood Net Worth

Now, Celebrity Net Worth estimates that Trisha Yearwood's net worth is around $100 million. And that's $400 million when you combine her financial success with her country singer husband's.

She's released a total of fourteen studio albums over the years including Christmas Together with her husband Garth Brooks. When they first met, Brooks was still married to his first wife Sandy Mahl, and Yearwood had previously been married to first husband Chris Latham and later second husband Bobby Reynolds. The stars finally aligned for Brooks and Yearwood following their divorces. After a romantic public proposal in Bakersfield, California, the couple tied the knot in 2005 and have been together ever since.
