Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood were good friends of First Lady Rosalynn Carter, who passed away this week at 96.

So he took a minute to pay tribute to her at an event the other day.

Garth and Trisha worked with her and President Carter through Habitat for Humanity, and he talked about why Trisha called her a “quiet warrior.”

He said whenever she gave a speech, Mrs. Carter would walk up to the mic and wait until she had the crowd’s full attention, then when she finally did speak, she’d be “very quiet but very powerful.”

Garth said it taught them that “a lion doesn’t have to roar,” and sometimes you only need “a few words to get your point across.”

He added that she was “great at that, and everyone loved her for [it].”

Garth also called her a light that shined on how we should treat each other, and said that light has “gone out,” but he added that if we all pick it up, “maybe that light can grow.”

Meanwhile, Garth just added 18 new dates to his Las Vegas Residency in 2024.

He’ll perform at The Colosseum At Ceasars Palace from September through December 2024.

Tickets for the newly announced Garth Brooks/Plus One dates go on sale Monday, November 27th.
