Sandy Mahl Net Worth $125 Million
Sandy is one of daughters born to Pat and John Mahl; she has a sister Debbie. Sandy grew up in her hometown and after high school matriculation enrolled at Oklahoma State University. During her University years, Sandy met Garth Brooks in a quite odd way. Garth was working as a bouncer in the bar Tumbleweed Ballroom in Stillwater, and Sandy was involved in a fight with another woman in the bar. Brooks was summoned to separate the two women, and after the fight ended he took Sandy home. The two started dating shortly after the incident and their relationship eventually became more serious, and the two eventually married in 1986 – coincidentally, they had actually been born in the same hospital. Garth had always wanted to become a successful musician, and with Sandy’s full support, the two moved to Nashville, so that Garth would get his chance as in the music world. Little by little, he became more successful, with Sandy also contributing as a songwriter on some of his early songs, and in his growing later career. Some of the most successful songs she wrote include “That Summer”, which topped the Country Charts in 1993, and “I’ve Got a Good Thing Going” Unfortunately, their marriage began to fall out in the late ‘90s and the two divorced in 2001. Before the divorce, the two had three daughters. As a result, Sandy received a significant settlement of $125 million, not unreasonable given her contribution to Brooks’ success, which significantly increased her wealth.
Since their divorce, Sandy devoted herself to raising her children and grandchildren, and left her career aside. She has not remarried. In 2006, Sandy was diagnosed with breast cancer, which was successfully treated.
Sandy is a wildlife rehabilitation enthusiast, and a co-founder of Wild Heart Ranch in Oklahoma.
