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 …”

Yearwood and her husband, Garth Brooks, were also inducted into the Music City Walk of Fame in October — the first time that a married couple has received the honor together.

“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.”

Yearwood is currently on the road with Brooks, on his World Tour. A list of upcoming dates is available on her website.
