Allie Brooks, the daughter of country superstar, Garth Brooks, has definitely inherited her father’s singing genes.
The 21-year-old is set to graduate from Nashville’s Belmont University in May, where she has been pursing a degree in songwriting, supported by knowledge of copyright law, demo production and music publishing.
“I have been watching, listening and learning as much as possible, just trying to be like a sponge and soak it all in,” Allie said. “It has been such a blessing to meet so many great people and play so many outstanding venues.”
Garth Brooks married his college sweetheart Sandy Mahl in May 1986. Together they had four daughters, Taylor Mayne Pearl Brooks born in July 1992, August Anna Brooks born in May 1994, and Allie Colleen Brooks born in July 1996.
The couple later separated in March of 1999, and their divorce became final in 2001.
For the country singer, his children have always been his top priority. He even temporarily retired from the music industry in 2000 to focus on his family. He said he wouldn’t be returning to country music until after his youngest daughter graduated from high school. When Allie graduated from high school in 2014, he made his triumphant return to the stage.
During his time away from the spotlight, Garth married fellow country music star, Trisha Yearwood in December 2005. After Allie graduated, Garth and Trisha sold their home in Owasso, Oklahoma and relocated to Tennessee.
Now that Allie is set to graduate from University, things are about to change for her yet again.
