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.

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: 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... »»»
