Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood are spreading the love… again! Earlier this month, the country superstars offered to splurge on a concert-going couple’s Hawaiian honeymoon, and they followed up with a similar gesture for another newlywed pair this week. Brooks and Yearwood went the more tangible route, and showered the lucky couple with a menagerie of wedding gifts.
Jude and Jamie Blanchard of Louisiana attended the opening night show of Brooks’ five-night Lafayette tour at the Cajundome arena on June 23. The singer, 55, spotted the future bride’s neon green sign in the audience which read, “Best week ever: Garth this Friday, our wedding next Friday.”
Brooks quickly asked about the couple’s registry from the stage and then boldly told the pair, “Me and Mrs. Yearwood, we’ll get it for you.” Jamie then passed a wedding invitation up to the country legend, who serenaded the duo with a rendition of Bob Dylan’s hit, “To Make You Feel My Love.”
The couple followed through on their promise.
Just this week, Brooks and Yearwood had boxes upon boxes of registry items delivered to the newlyweds. The Blanchards were shocked by the gesture, and received pricey gifts from the stars like a Kitchen Aid mixer, a pair of lounge chairs, a Rowenta iron, a meat grinder and patio lights, among other much-appreciated items.
Logistically speaking, it turned out that a rep for the world tour tracked down the couple after the concert to ask for their address. Although there were no personal notes in the boxes, each packing slip included Brooks’ name and a Nashville, Tennessee, address.
The couple was understandably shocked by the surprise delivery. “Jude pulled up yesterday and there were four huge boxes in front of our door,” Jamie said Thursday, according to USA Today. “Another one was here today.”
She concluded: “It’s a crazy amount of stuff. I don’t know what I thought he was going to send us, but this is just beyond what we were expecting. I didn’t need him to send anything because he sang to us… I’m really humbled.”
