We always hear about Garth Brooks & Trisha Yearwood promoting new music or being in the spotlight – but I love when something simple happens that shows they’re regular people just like us.
Trisha said one of the most thoughtful gifts she ever got from Garth was a grocery cart. She said the story behind it was so sweet. They were talking one day about how when you get home with your groceries, how cool it would be if you had a cart at home.
So in true Garth fashion, instead of getting some generic grocery cart off Amazon he called Trisha’s Mom and got information about a grocery store in Trisha’s hometown, he had Trisha’s Mom talk to a guy that used to run the place and said “Would you happen to have any of those old grocery carts?” He said he had about a dozen of them, Trisha’s Mom then explained to the former store owner that Garth wanted to give one to Trisha’s and she asked the price. The man refused to take any money and said it would be his pleasure to give Garth one. And that’s the sweet story behind Trisha’s favorite Christmas gift.
It’s not always the price of a gift that’s most memorable, it’s the story behind it.
