“I don’t really have [those] business connections. But ever since I was a kid, my dad has taught me basically one lesson, and that’s to put my head down and work. If I wasn’t where I wanted to be where I was in soccer, it’s because I didn’t work. If I wasn’t where I wanted to be in school, or with my friends, or just with myself, the answer was always to put my head down and work. So it never really crossed my mind to do it any other kind of way.”

The number, however, is a combined fortune between Brooks and his wife, Trisha Yearwood. The majority of the couple’s money comes from Garth’s career from which he has allegedly raked in $300 to $350 million.
And considering his achievements, that shouldn’t come as that much of a subject of a debate; the 60-year-old country artist has six albums that are certified diamond.
