It’s good to be friends with Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood. The superstar couple gifted former President Jimmy Carter and his wife Rosalynn with a vintage red convertible in honor of the couple’s 75th wedding anniversary.
It was built in 1946, which was the year before the Carters were married.
The Carters’ close friend Jill Stuckey told PEOPLE that the gift arrived to the couple’s home in Plains, Georgia, last Wednesday around noon, where it was taken by Secret Service and stored in an area of the compound so the couple wouldn’t see it until their anniversary party.
Garth and Trisha were in attendance at the celebration. PEOPLE reports that Rosalyn addressed their guests saing, “It’s wonderful to celebrate with so many friends. It’s just so good to have you all here and I thank you for making it a good evening, a good time for us to be here and to be with friends we care about very much.” President Carter told the party-goers, “To my wife Rosalynn, I want to express a particular gratitude for being the right woman that I chose for my wife.”
