Yearwood cooks on TV

Thursday, June 21, 2012 – Food Network has ordered a new season of the daytime series Trisha's Southern Kitchen, starring Trisha Yearwood.

The show's 13-episode, second cycle will begin production this summer and is slated to premiere in the fall. Yearwood shares her food traditions, updates classic dishes and displays her southern hospitality, cooking family-inspired, down-home recipes with friends and family. Each themed episode invites viewers into Yearwood's kitchen for favorite meals and beloved family stories.

"I had so much fun doing the first season of the show. It was such a great experience, and the positive response from viewers was overwhelming and truly gratifying. I've always believed that food brings people together. I can't wait to share more family memories and recipes with Food Network fans," said Yearwood.

"Our viewers loved seeing a different side of Trisha. Her impressive cooking skills and family recipes, coupled with her natural southern charm, really resonated with our audience," said Bob Tuschman, General Manager and Senior Vice President, Food Network. "We're thrilled Trisha will be returning for a second season with more delicious dishes and family traditions."

Yearwood released her first best-selling cookbook "Georgia Cooking in an Oklahoma Kitchen" (Clarkson Potter) in 2008. Her second book "Home Cooking with Trisha Yearwood" (Clarkson Potter) followed in 2010. Both books reached the #1 position on the New York Times best-seller list in the Advice, How-To and Miscellaneous category.

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"). »»»

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: We Banjo 3 beaks down the barriers – The joy is palpable when the music is of the Irish variety. And when you combine that with a typically uptempo bluegrass sound - We Banjo 3 labels its style of music Celtgrass - let's say it makes for one fun night. The group, which has been around since 2011, is a quartet from Galway Ireland comprised of two sets of brothers - the cool looking... »»»
Concert Review: Gayle, Orlando provide good old-fashioned entertainment – Although this pairing of country star Crystal Gayle and Tony Orlando may have - on the surface - appeared to be an odd one, tonight's audience demonstratively loved each performer equally. It was an evening of memorable songs, fun and funny stories and just good old-fashioned entertainment. Gayle opened the show with a strong set of country... »»»
