Trisha Yearwood Doesn’t Take Her Success for Granted
Trisha Yearwood has accomplished plenty in her life and career so far: Most recently, the singer released her 12th studio album, PrizeFighter, in 2014, and a new season of her Emmy Award-winning TV show, Trisha’s Southern Kitchen, premiered in early January … and the singer says that she isn’t taking any of it for granted.
“I don’t think too far ahead,” Yearwood tells The Boot. “I’m enjoying everything I’m doing. I’m at a time in my life where I’m really grateful. I’m at a place where I realize that anything that happens that’s good is a blessing. And it’s not always that way. I just really enjoy it while it’s happening. I’m having fun with all of it.”
The 51-year-old was presented with the ASCAP Voice of Music Award, honoring her numerous musical achievements, during a special ceremony held in early November.
“I have such reverence and respect for songwriters,” Yearwood says of the recognition. “I was doing demos for them long before I had my first record deal. They were friends to me on my first album. New artists back in the ‘90s, on their first album, they didn’t always get top-drawer songs. But they knew me, so they gave me good songs …”
“There is something very, very special about this city,” Yearwood says of Nashville. “I’m a Georgia girl, always, but I’ve always said, I’ve never lived any other place that felt like home, and Nashville feels like home.”
