Yearwood goes to Country Music Hall of Fame (or at least her artifacts)

Wednesday, May 13, 2015 – Trisha Yearwood is going to the Country Music Hall of Fame, or at least her artifacts will.

The Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum announced today the exhibition Trisha Yearwood: The Song Remembers When. The exhibition opens July 3 and runs through December.

The exhibition will chronicle Yearwood's life, career and musical achievements. The story begins in her tiny hometown, Monticello, Ga., and is followed by a move to Nashville, where Yearwood becomes a music business major at Belmont University. The future three-time Grammy award-winning artist began her career in music, spending time first as a tour guide at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum and a receptionist at a record company.

"With a powerful voice and inspiring music, Trisha is an extremely talented, award-winning singer and long-time friend of the museum, dating back to her days as a tour guide here at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum. We're proud to host her exhibit," said museum CEO Kyle Young. "She was the first female country singer to have a debut album sell 1 million copies in its first year, driven by her first number 1 single 'She's in Love with the Boy.' And that was only her first milestone. This exhibit shares her story - from small-town roots to platinum albums."

Yearwood currently is on tour with her husband, Garth Broooks.

PrizeFighter: Hit after Hit CD review - PrizeFighter: Hit after Hit
Trisha Yearwood is better known these days for being on the Food Network for her cooking show and publishing cookbooks plus being Mrs. Garth Brooks than she is for her own recording career.

Heaven, Heartache & the Power of Love CD review - Heaven, Heartache & the Power of Love
The record label may have changed for Trisha Yearwood, but one thing that did not is her powerful voice. Yes, she can turn it on, demonstrating the depth of feeling (the uptempo "They Call It Falling for a Reason" by Jim Collins and Matraca Berg, who produced the song), but she is also not a Johnny one note either by overdoing it. Yearwood mixes it up between tender and strong within a few bars ("This Is Me You're Talking To" and particularly "The Dreaming Fields"). »»»
Greatest Hits CD review - Greatest Hits
After 16 years and 5 number 1 hits, Trisha Yearwood, 43, finally has enough hits under her belt to make them her greatest. The 17 songs here include 2 new songs closing out the disc, actually her second such package ("Songbook: A Collection of Hits" came out in 1997). The rest of it is in chronological order with her very first song, a career one at that, "She's In Love With the Boy" with most songs having a pop influence. The ultra-catchy "She's in Love... »»»
Editorial: Walking the talk – When names like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon and the Hag are invoked, you're talking hard core country. These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»
Concert Review: These Eagles keep songs alive and well – The newly reconfigured Eagles lineup, which now includes Vince Gill and Deacon Frey in place of the late Glenn Frey, hasn't changed its set much since this modified grouping's debut at Dodger Stadium in 2017. Don Henley announced from the outset, though, how the group continues to tour primarily so it can keep the Eagles' many great songs alive.... »»»
Concert Review: Lovett could not have scripted it any better – Cerritos is a fair distance from Hollywood, but Lyle Lovett, who has accumulated a long list of acting credits, sometimes seemed like he was giving a company town performance this night. Maybe it was because Paul Reiser, the "Mad About You" star, introduced Lovett with a funny bit about what some of the man's songs mean (or don't mean).... »»»
