“Where do you want to go on your honeymoon?” Brooks asked the bride. “No idea? Well, I tell you what, if you pick Hawaii, Miss Yearwood and I will pay for it, OK?”
His wife, country star Trisha Yearwood, would come up with the line of the night: "Nobody else can get engaged tonight!"
Brooks was giving doubleheader shows Friday and Saturday at Chesapeake Energy Arena in Oklahoma City. Brooks, 55, was born in Tulsa and grew up in Yukon. He was making the last Oklahoma stop on his comeback tour.
