    • Trisha (About her marriage): The only place that I have to be really careful is I don't want people buying tickets to my shows thinking they are going to see Garth Brooks, because he is a stay-at-home dad. He is not coming on tour with me, and I just don't want people to be disappointed.

    • Trisha: Originally, this was supposed to be a private ceremony in a garden with family, ... Garth told me later that he knew when they unveiled the statue [I was going to ask] `Why is there a wedding ring on your hand?' He was gonna have some explaining to do. He said he knew that was the moment, no matter if there was one person there or a thousand people there, that was what he had to do.

    • Trisha: As a musician, I have a deep respect and appreciation for the gift of hearing and the beauty that it brings to life, ... Having been on an international hearing mission trip with the Starkey Hearing Foundation, my respect and appreciation is equally great for the work it is doing to open the ears of the world's children.

You hit the first chords of 'She's In Love With The Boy' and 20,000 people start to scream, you're pretty motivated. You get what you need. And it's a great story. It works.

    • Trisha: I always want to sing, but I don't always want to be trying to have Number 1 records. I don't think you can do it forever. I don't know what the time span of that is going to be. I want to sing because I want to sing.
