Garth Brooks Ex-Wife [PHOTOS] Where Is Country Singer Brooks' Ex-Wife Sandy Mahl Now?

Garth Brooks' ex-wife has been unheard of for many years now following the couple's divorce way back in 2001, which apparently ended their 15 and 1/2 years marriage. But now that Garth is making headlines for being one of Jay Leno's final batch of guests, everyone couldn't help but wonder where his ex-wife/first wife is now. Before we go there however, let us first get to know who is Garth Brooks' ex-wife Sandy Mahl.

For the country singer's fans, who didn't get the luxury of time to follow the regular exploits of Brooks, Sandy Mahl, his first wife, is an American businesswoman who is very successful in her own way. CelebrityNetWorth even claims that she is worth $125 million.

Nevertheless, it wasn't at all the money that led Garth Brooks to tie the knot with Sandy Mahl.

According to recounts on how the two met, Garth Brooks and his ex-wife were both students at Oklahoma State University.

Because of a not-so-fortunate event, the two met and started dating. Garth Brooks was reportedly doing some part-time work as bouncer at a local bar when they were still studying. He allegedly helped stop a commotion one night and ended up driving Sandy Mahl home, which marked the beginning of their sweet romance.

In 1986, Girth Brooks married Sandy and the two decided to move to Nashville, where Garth reportedly struggled financially.

In his trying times, it was only Garth Brooks' ex-wife that reminded the country singer never to give up on his dreams of becoming a singer, and he did shortly.

But sad news began to proliferate their home when Garth Brooks ended up touring every now and then, which also ignited rumors of infidelity against the singer. Thus, in 2000, both parties filed for divorce.

In 2005, Garth Brooks married another country star, Tricia Yearwood.

 Meanwhile, Sandy Mahl began to lose the limelight that the name of her ex-husband brought to her and her family.

As of today, Mahl is reportedly single and has never remarried. Instead, she focused her time on co-parenting her three kids with Brooks.
