EDMOND, OK. (AP) - Singer Garth Brooks has sold 142 acres of land he owned in Edmond to a Norman-based developer for $2.7 million.
The Journal Record reports that the acreage was one of the last undeveloped parcels in the area, which is surrounded by housing subdivisions. Property records show that Brooks bought the land in 1992 with his first wife, Sandy Mahl. Brooks retained the land when the couple finalized their divorce in 2001.
Brooks sold the land to developer Jade Noles, who plans to develop a residential community called Rush Brook. Noles calls the acreage one of "last great pieces of land left in Edmond."
Brooks could not be reached for comment about the sale. Brooks' wife, country singer Trisha Yearwood, was also listed on the sale documents.
