Biography

Trisha Yearwood (born September 19, 1964) is a three-time Grammy-winning American country music singer. She cites Linda Ronstadt as her biggest influence, and Ronstadt’s sound and vocal stylings are clearly apparent in Yearwood’s music. Other influences include Emmylou Harris, Patsy Cline, and Elvis Presley.

Patricia Lynn Yearwood was born in Monticello, Georgia to Jack and Gwen Yearwood, and developed her musical talent in Nashville, Tennessee, where she interned as a receptionist for the local company MTM Records.

Garth Brooks and Yearwood first met in October 1987 recording demos for songwriter Kent Blazy. The two immediately hit it off as friends, and pledged whoever made it big first would help the other out. When Garth landed a major tour in 1991, he brought Trisha along to open all of his shows. Even when they became two of the biggest country stars of the 1990s, they remained close friends.

Yearwood’s self-titled debut album was released in 1991, and the lead single, “She’s in Love with the Boy,” went to the top of the country charts, making her an instant star. Yearwood secured similar success with the 1992 release of “Hearts in Armor”, which featured the hit singles “Wrong Side of Memphis,” and “Woman Walk the Line”.

The title track of 1993’s “The Song Remembers When” went to number two, and she followed it with a Christmas album, “The Sweetest Gift”, in 1994; that year, she also won her first Grammy award. In 1995, Yearwood released her fourth studio album, “Thinkin’ About You”.
