Jerry Hufford, about Trisha's reaction to Garth's proposal: "Her knees were like Jell-O. She was totally stunned."
Trisha, on her friendship with Garth, 10/99: "In the beginning, he was such a big brother to me. When I went on tour with him, I had never done it before, and he was so great...Most artists don't get that kind of opportunity. But then I went through this rebellious little-sister phase where I didn't want him to tell me what to do. I was like, 'I don't want your advice about my career, because you're wrong and I don't agree with you.' I don't agree with everything he says, but I do have great respect for him and his business sense."
Garth, on being a husband, 3/01: "I don't have any faith in myself as a husband at this point. I do as a father, but I do have a lot of faith in myself as a friend to my wife. Those are things you stare at the ceiling and you think about, like all of us do, at night."
Garth, about his retirement plans, 12/99: "It's time to take on the responsibility that I took on seven years ago when we had our baby. I feel like I've been a good dad the times I've been home--but, you know, if you do something, if you put your name on something, well then you give everything you got to it. I put my name on that baby seven years ago, and August and Allie, but I've always seemed to find some way to justify it by saying I was out making a living for the family or preparing. I think the time's come to focus on them."
Garth, about his troubled marriage relationship with Sandy, 1/2000: "I think because we are honest with each other and you talk to each other. You talk about happiness. The big word in a relationship for me is respect, and do we have that for each other? If you don't, then you must try and find it. If you can't find it, then is your position better as friends? Finding that someone for [Sandy] that makes her feel like she really likes herself, and for me to find somebody that makes me feel like I really like myself."
Garth, announcing his divorce from Sandy, 10/2000: "Sandy and I both agree that we need to get divorced. Right now, we're focusing on the impact it will have on the children and how to handle that best, to remain parents even if we don't remain husband and wife."
