Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood Have Gone Vegan

Country music legends Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood have reportedly gone vegan.

According to the Las Vegas Review Journal, a couple from Washington State recently won a lunch with the superstar husband and wife. “Brooks revealed that he and his wife, Trisha Yearwood, have become vegans and, while ordering, asked the server to bring him Steve Wynn’s favorite vegan food,” the site revealed.

ThisDishIsVeg.com reached out to the article’s author, who confirmed the information – adding that he was told Brooks ordered a “vegan Cobb salad.”

That Brooks might be a vegan is not surprising considering the passionate embrace of the plant based life by his employer, billionaire Steve Wynn.

“The notion that you need animal food as protein is one of the great conspiracies of bullshit by the government,” Wynn said in 2010. “Did we not all grow up saying we had to have four glasses of whole milk a day for healthy bones? It’s ridiculous. It’s liquid cholesterol.”

As ThisDish points out, the only thing that makes this info come across as a bit shaky is the fact that Trisha Yearwood is launching a new cooking show on The Food Network titled “Trisha’s Southern Kitchen.” According to the website, viewers will learn how to cook “Barbecued Chicken, Uncle Wilson’s Grilled Onions, Chick-less Pot Pie, and Sweet and Saltines.”

Well, three out of those four sound vegan – so here’s to hoping this healthy rumor is true!

    does this mean her new show on the food network will feature vegan dishes??

    • Aliasfan611

      I hope so that will give me a reason to watch the channel

  • I’ve been hearing rumors here in Oklahoma for some time now about them dabbling with a vegan diet, don’t know if I really believe they’ve gone the whole way. My understanding is that her cooking show will not be all vegan, but she may slip a few vegan recipes in.

    Garth has struggled with his weight for as long as I can remember.

  • trisha yearwood was just on The View today and said they weren’t vegan… and then she shared her mac & cheese and fried chicken with the guests… what a bummer 🙁

    Are you sure? One of my FB friends said today Trisha was just on GMA plugging her new TV show about “country cookin” and was making some chicken dish.

    They are not vegan – they ate some vegan meals…that’s all. She has a cookbook coming out w/ chicken recipes as well as other heavy dairy/meat recipes, etc. This is a prime example of social media taking one sentence of an interview & blowing it up into something false.

    I’m surprised Food Network is even allowing ANYTHING vegan on their channel. I hope Trisha’s show is vegan – it will help to offset the brutality of another new show, “Meat Men” – ugh.

    I saw her on Pierce the other night promoting her cookbook and she had some food on the table including fried chicken!!! Plus she mentioned that she still handles the meat and (I would assume eat it too.) So I have NO IDEA why these sites get “excited” when they think any celebrity goes vegan! CHECK YOUR SOURCES!!!!

    stop. please, just stop this crap already. ordering one vegan meal doesn’t make them vegans any more than standing in my garage makes me a car. how about some actual news about actual vegans?

The reason for these advancements is not a sense of justice – because that can only mean going vegan – but is primarily driven by economics.

Don’t blame vegans for the shame you feel about using animals

The shame Carly Lewis claims veganism casts over her is more likely the ghosts of moral uncertainty, spectres that are more likely fish than cows, wondering how morality can possibly be used as ammunition in favour of murder.
