Garth & Trisha make time for fans after court

CLAREMORE, Okla. - Despite a long tense week, Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood made time for their fans outside the courtroom.

All week, those fans have filled the hallways of the Rogers County Courthouse.

On Friday, 9-year-old Colton Hynes waited for a second time.

"On Wednesday, I waited three hours to get him to sign my, a piece of paper and a shirt," Hynes said.

This time, Colton brought his guitar with him.

His mom, Mary, has seen Garth in concert twice.

But she has yet to see him around town.

"I've been here four-and-a-half years just waiting to run into him somewhere so we're really excited to see him," she said.

About 5:30 in the afternoon, the couple came out of a 3rd floor courtroom met by fans.

Some just wanted a quick photo, others an autograph.

"Now Miss Allie, you know we have an Allie ourselves? Our youngest girl is an Allie," Brooks said to one young fan as he signed her backpack.

"It was really crazy, it was awesome," Tori Chester said.

Chester and her mom had been waiting for a few hours for autographs.

They say it was worth it.

"I got my mother-in-law's cap signed and my husband's cap signed for him," Sheri Chester said.

Garth and Trisha would eventually make it to the second floor, where more fans were waiting.

One fan introduced himself, "I'm Tony."

"Tony, nice to meet you," Brooks said.

That's where Colton was waiting.  Garth remembered him from earlier in the week.

"Colton, have we met before? Did we meet yesterday?"

"Yes, I think so," Hynes said.

By then, Garth had signed his name dozens of times.    

But the country music star thought his autograph for Colton was pretty good.

"That might be one of my best ones ever. The only way that'd been better if I'd signed George Strait," Brooks said.

The one liner got a pretty good laugh from the fans.

The couple spent about an hour, Friday, visiting with fans.
