Party on, Garth: Brooks, Yearwood to get hitched
BAKERSFIELD, California (AP) -- Garth Brooks stole the show Wednesday night when he got down on one knee in front of 7,000 fans and proposed to fellow country music star Trisha Yearwood.
She said yes -- and the crowd went wild.
The occasion was the "Legends in Bronze" event at Buck Owens' Crystal Palace, where 10 larger-than-life bronze statues honoring country stars were unveiled, including one of Brooks.
After his big moment, Brooks popped the question.
The marriage will be the second for Brooks, who has three children, and the third for Yearwood, said Brooks' spokeswoman Nancy Seltzer.
"That's the fastest-running, slowest-walking guy I've ever seen."
