Yearwood announces songs on upcoming release
Friday, June 28, 2019
– Trisha Yearwood revealed the track list for her upcoming 14-song CD, "Every Girl."
This fall, she launches her first solo tour in five years. The "Every Girl On Tour" kicks off Oct. 3 with a special three-night engagement with the Nashville Symphony at Schermerhorn Symphony Center. The 22-city trek stops in New York, Boston, Atlanta, Chicago, St. Louis, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Fort Worth, Texas, Minneapolis and Jacksonville.
Garth Fundis, Yearwood's long-time producer, again was at the helm. The first single is "Every Girl in This Town."
Husband Garth Brooks, Kelly Clarkson and Don Henley all contribute backing vocals.
"Tell Me Something I Don't Know" features Clarkson with Brooks on the ballad, "What Gave Me Away." Henley sings on "Love You Anyway."
As a Linda Ronstadt fan, she reached out to songwriterKarla Bonoff for a collaboration and recorded "Home," originally cut by Bonnie Raitt. Lucie Silvas, Caitlyn Smith, Patricia Conroy, Ashley McBryde and Gretchen Peters were among the songwriters.
"I approached this album without any pressure or expectations," she said. "I'm so grateful the songs were there. I found 14 tunes I couldn't live without. You want people to recognize you as an artist, but you also want to take them somewhere they haven't necessarily been with you before. With the freedom of no expectations, I got back to that feeling I felt on my first album, like I have to do this and put it out there. Over the years, I let go of worrying about perfection. I just wanted to have a good time. I realized maybe that's when you do your best work."
"Every Girl" is Yearwood's first full-length country record since 2007's "Heaven, Heartache and the Power of Love." Earlier this year, she released an homage to Frank Sinatra, "Let's Be Frank." She also was on Brooks' 2014 - 2017 world tour.

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"). »»»
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: White makes the case for himself, no matter how dark the music
John Paul White opined with a glint in his eyes that his songs were not of the uplifting variety. In fact, they were downright dark. How else to explain "The Long Way" with the line "long way home back to you." Or "James," a song inspired by his grandfather who suffered from dementia.
But lest you think that the Alabama... »»»
