I grew up in West Virginia, so I’m completely unashamed to admit that I do love some good ole’ fashioned honky-tonk music and fun from time to time. If you’re like me, then chances are you’re pretty stoked to learn that this article is about none other than the man, the legend himself — Mr. Troyal Garth Brooks (and Garth Brooks house!). That’s right — his first name is actually Troyal. This guy is not only country royalty but literally a music legend due to the number of records he’s broken during his career as a country music artist.
Believe it or not, in 2015 according to RIAA, Mr. Brooks was ranked as the best selling solo album artist in the U.S. having sold over 148 million records domestically. This literally puts him in front of Elvis, the king himself, and second only to the Beatles. According to recent reports, as of 2019, he is also the only artist to have seven records released to have achieved diamond status in the United States. He is furthermore considered one of the best-selling musicians of all time seeing as how he’s sold a whopping 170 million records worldwide. Pretty darn impressive if you ask me. If you’re interested in learning more titillating factoids about this country legend, then stick around for the #411 with Velvet Ropes.
Where does Garth Brooks live?
Garth Brooks actually has several beautiful homes in various locations in the United States. If you’ve ever found yourself wondering where does Trisha Yearwood live — then you’ll be happy to know that the answer is still with Garth Brooks. That’s right, the two are still going strong as a family, living their best lives and pretty much cemented in my mind as one of the most adorable long-term couples in country music (second only to Tim McGraw and Faith Hill, of course).
As far as homes go, Brooks and Trisha have actually had several over the years. Trisha sold her Brentwood, Tennessee home when the pair initially got together and the two high-tailed it to Owasso, Oklahoma. They have also owned a beautiful beach home in Malibu which they sold in 2016 as well as a gorgeous home in Goodlettsville, Tennessee.

Brooks and his wife Trisha’s primary home is located in Goodlettsville, TN near Nashville. They have owned the home for decades, having purchased it in November 1990 for $432,500.
The 5,551 square foot home, which was originally built in 1970 has a gated entrance and 13 rooms in total including 7 bedrooms and 6 bathrooms. It sits on a 19.8-acre lot and also includes a pool and a 1,575 square foot garage as well as a 746 square foot basement.
Garth Brooks Oklahoma House (Current)
Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood house in Oklahoma was purchased before the pair moved to the Nashville area in 2014. The couple relocated to this particular spot because Brooks’ ex-wife had moved his daughters to the area and he wanted to remain close to them. Trisha at the time was skeptical about being able to manage their careers so far from Nashville, so Brooks made a promise that they would relocate once all of the girls finished high school.
The $3.5 million 14,089-square-foot French country style home sits on 2.4 acres of property and is located in Owasso, Oklahoma. The home is suited with 7 bedrooms, 9.5 bathrooms, 2 kitchens, a screening room, a gym, and a 5-car garage.
And based on Google Maps aerial views, they have a massive garage where multiple tour buses are parked.
Garth Brooks House Malibu (Former)
Brooks and his wife also at one point owned a $7 million mansion in Malibu’s Paradise Cove which they eventually sold to internet entrepreneur Adam Bernhard in 2016. The single-story, 4,200 square foot ranch-style home was originally built in 1958 and sat on a half of an acre of land within a gated community.
Inside Garth Brooks house included a remodeled interior with French doors, vaulted and beamed ceilings, skylights, walls of glass and clerestory windows. There was also a living room with a corner fireplace as well as a den which doubled as a library with floor-to-ceiling bookshelves and a white brick fireplace. There was also an open chef’s kitchen with marble countertops, 4 bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms in total. The oceanfront property also included a basketball court.
Garth Brooks Cars
Brooks has been photographed riding around in a white Mercedes, however, there have also been reports that he also owns a red Corvette and a white Mustang. But, believe it or not, his most prized possession is actually a red 1993 Chevy K series pickup truck.
Apparently Brooks loves his truck so much that he drove it “all over heck and gone” according to his wife Trisha Yearwood. As a surprise, she decided to restore the vehicle one day as a birthday surprise without knowing that Brooks had already offered it up to be auctioned for the ACM Lifting Lives Gala the pair were hosting. When Brooks saw the restored vehicle, he had to have it back. So he purchased it from the auction as the highest bidder after it went up to a whopping $285,000.
