Trisha Yearwood Joins ‘Sinatra 100′ Concert Lineup
The event, honoring what would have been Frank Sinatra's 100th birthday, will also feature the Zac Brown Band‘s frontman, Zac Brown, Garth Brooks and Carrie Underwood, as well as John Legend, Alicia Keys, Adam Levine, Usher, Celine Dion, Lady Gaga, Harry Connick Jr. and Tony Bennett. The artists will all be performing Sinatra’s many classic and iconic songs. The music legend died in 1998, at the age of 82.
The Sinatra 100 concert is just one of numerous special events that Yearwood has been involved in recently: In late November, the country star helped kick off holiday celebrations at Graceland, and earlier that month, she was presented with the Voice of Music Award at the 53rd annual ASCAP Country Music Awards. Justin Timberlake, Lady Antebellum, Yearwood’s step-daughter, Allie Brooks, Reba McEntire and former president Jimmy Carter were on hand to honor her at the event.
“I hope you know that the best compliment you can pay me is for a songwriter to tell me they like what I did to their song. It’s the highest compliment," Yearwood said. "... I’m humbled and honored … Thank you to all the songwriters. I’m a big fan.”
Sinatra 100 — An All-Star Grammy Concert is being pre-taped on Dec. 2 at the Encore Theatre at the Wynn Las Vegas. It is set to air on CBS on Dec. 6 at 9PM ET.
