Trisha Yearwood has a habit of exceeding expectations. As a singer, Trisha is a world-class interpreter of emotion.
She’s a platinum-selling, multiple Grammy, CMA and ACM Award winning vocalist with one of the most powerful voices in country music.
I ❤ music, family, food, coffee & dogs!
Trisha diversified by writing a cookbook, Georgia Cooking in an Oklahoma Kitchen. The book began as a family project to honor her father. When the book debuted on the New York Times Bestsellers list in 2008, the amazing reception opened doors that allowed the cookbook to come to life as her own Food Network show, Trisha’s Southern Kitchen.
It premiered in 2012, then earned an Emmy Award the following year. It quickly became clear that Trisha was a hit with country AND culinary audiences.
Yearwood’s upbringing was one that valued Southern hospitality and kindness over cynicism. Her childhood in Monticello, GA, was classically All-American and she shared a close bond with her parents and sister, Beth. Even when it was time to spread her wings, Trisha always believed that “home is where the heart is.” That guiding principle is apparent in all she does.
“At some point, I realized that if you don’t live in the moment and enjoy all the things you’re doing, you won’t keep those moments as memories.”
