Garth Brooks Calls Nashville the “Home of Dreamers”

Country Stars Feel at Home at Walk of Fame Induction

On Wednesday (Sept. 9), Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood were inducted into the Music City Walk of Fame in downtown Nashville.

According to The Tennessean, Brooks and Yearwood are the first married couple to get a star, an honor they received for all that they have given to the city.

And it’s a city that the couple is glad to call home now.

“What I love about Nashville is that it’s the home of the dreamers, the home of the people that made the leap. It’s no question, I’m from Oklahoma. But I cannot thank Nashville enough for giving me a second home. Between you and me, my home is wherever (Trisha Yearwood) is,” he said.

Yearwood reiterated that Nashville isn’t where she is from, either, but that it feels like home to her now.

“I moved to town in 1985 when I was 20, and I knew when I was 5 years old that I wanted to be a singer. It’s very surreal to have gone from moving here and driving down the streets of 16th and 17th Avenue,” Yearwood said, “to standing here holding this plaque; it’s very emotional. I’m a Georgia girl, always. I’ve never lived any other place that felt like home, and Nashville feels like home.”

Alison makes her living loving country music. She's based in Chicago, but she's always leaving her heart in Nashville.
