Trisha Yearwood jumps from MCA to Big Machine

Thursday, May 10, 2007 – Trisha Yearwood left the only label she has ever been with, MCA Nashville, for Big Machine Records. An album is slated to be released in 2008.

Yearwood had been with MCA for 16 years, but she had a long relationship with Scott Borchetta, president and CEO of Big Machine.

"This move is far from random, as the relationship between Yearwood and Borchetta is long and solid," a press release said. The two first worked together in the late 1980s when Borchetta was a member of the promo staff at the now defunct MTM Records in Nashville. Yearwood had recently graduated from Belmont University and worked as the label's receptionist, while singing demos on the side.

While at MCA, Yearwood, who is married to Garth Brooks, had 16 number 1 hits; 20 top-10 hits.

"I've had a long, successful relationship with Scott Borchetta, and I've watched with pride as he's taken Big Machine Records from a brand new company to an extremely successful record label in less than two years. I'm excited about starting this next chapter in my career with Scott and Big Machine," said Yearwood.

"Today is about Trisha Yearwood's future. Her amazing talent and accomplishments speak for themselves. To know that I have the opportunity to provide the arena for her career to go to the next level has me - and the Big Machine staff - incredibly excited," said Borchetta.

Yearwood's first studio record since 2005 will be released on Big Machine Records in early 2008.

Big Machine also includes Taylor Swift, Jack Ingram, Danielle Peck, Dusty Drake and Jimmy Wayne.

CD review - Every Girl: Deluxe Trisha Yearwood's reissue of 2019's "Every Girl" as a deluxe edition with three new songs makes sense on some level. Logistically, having the title track lead off instead of the somber "Workin' on Whiskey" on the original version sets a more pleasant tone. Plus the listener gets a taste of the new material quickly. "I Dare You To Love" is up in the number two spot. It is textbook Trisha in her heyday. The soft piano intro brings Adele's ...
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. "Prizefighter" is a greatest hits collection plus with 10 hits and 6 new songs, going all the way back with her career song and debut single, "She's in Love With the Boy," which still resonates 23 years later. There are the upbeat ("XXXs and OOO's" and "Heaven, ...
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"). ...
