Personalities | Trisha Yearwood | New Country & The Neo-Traditionalists

(Vocals, b. 1964)

Trisha Yearwood initially moved to Nashville in 1985 to study for a degree in music management, but she ended up working as receptionist at MTM. When the label closed down in 1988, she worked singing demos and sessions. In 1991, her first single, ‘She’s In Love With The Boy’, topped the chart, and her user-friendly vocal style has brought further chart success. She was CMA Female Vocalist of the Year in 1997 and 1998. Her 2005 album, Jasper County, features assistance from her current husband, Garth Brooks, repaying his debt for her work on his debut album.
