Have Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood Gone Vegan?

According to a local Las Vegas journal, Garth Brooks and wife Trisha Yearwood have adopted a plant-based diet.

Country singer Garth Brooks and his similarly musical wife Trisha Yearwood have decided to go vegan, the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports. The local publication followed the immensely popular star as he met with a raffle-winning fan for lunch, revealing that he and Yearwood are adhering to a vegan diet. Brooks allegedly requested to dine on the favorite foods of hotel magnate Steve Wynn, whom he knows personally due to the star’s five-year contract to perform exclusively at Wynn’s hotels. This Dish Is Vegetarian contacted the author of the piece, who elaborated that Brooks dined on a vegan Cobb salad, but the veg blog also points out that Yearwood is scheduled to launch a cooking show on Food Network this year that has yet to be confirmed meat- and dairy-free.
