Yearwood posted a photo to Instagram of herself giving Brooks a smooch on the stage at Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, home to Nashville hot chicken and the Grand Ole Opry, as he holds his guitar and an audience of fans looks on. In her caption, she said “Happy Sweet Sixteen, Mr. Yearwood,” and fans seemed eager to jump in with their congratulations.
“Happy Sweet 16 to you & the cowboy! So happy you have the love you deserve,” gushed one fan, followed by a flurry of heart emojis. “Sweet 16 and a lifetime to go. Love you love,” commented another. “Thank you for showing us what true love is about” said yet another, and that seems to be the sentiment from most of the fans commenting on the post. It’s sweet to see how many people support Yearwood and Brooks and their love after all these years.
