On May 7 in Fargo, N.D., children packed a North High School gymnasium to play a fun-filled game of floor hockey. Little did they know that two megastars were standing nearby.

Those two stars were Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood.

As shocking as it may seem though, playing music wasn’t on the power couple’s priority list that day. Instead, they were there to host a “Teammates for Kids Pro-Camp” — a camp that gives underprivileged children the chance to learn how to play the game of floor hockey from local professional athletes.

“As far as Garth, they don’t have a clue [who I am]. If they know me as anything, I’m the husband of the woman that they see on the cooking show,” Garth told WDAZ 8.

Two people that the kids did recognize though were former NHL stars, Brian Lee and Mark Cullen. The professional athletes, along with coaches and volunteers, helped the students understand how to handle the puck and shoot.

For Garth and Trisha, this is one thing that they look forward to. So they’re lucky that they’ve been able to make plenty of these kinds of stops while on tour.

“I’ll never do anything that I’m more proud of,” said Garth, “I’ll never do anything that I think is more important. Other than having kids myself and being Miss [Trisha] Yearwood’s husband, I don’t think there’s anything more important than this work right here.”
