Trisha Yearwood to Appear on ‘Nashville’
In Yearwood's scene, she will present an award to a winner, which she says is not unlike a role she has filled for most of her professional life.
"It's actually very similar. The only difference is I'm not in a gown and full hair and makeup at 10 o'clock in the morning," she tells Rolling Stone Country. "But you look at the Teleprompter and you rehearse what you're going to say. If you're presenting [an award], it's a pretty easy gig. This is good; it will be good rehearsal for me for the actual CMA Awards in a few weeks."
The Georgia native, who, in addition to hosting her own cooking show, 'Trisha's Southern Kitchen,' has appeared in 'Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman' and 'JAG,' says she is a fan of the show.
"I especially love to watch it for the city," Yearwood says. "They're at the Bluebird, or I know that drummer, you see people that you know. Then you get sucked into the story and you're waiting to see what happens. Now that I know a little bit ahead about what's happening, I've got to have some conversations with the script writers. I've got some changes that need to be made!"
Yearwood is one of several artists who can add 'Nashville' to their list of credits. She joins Florida Georgia Line, Luke Bryan, Kip Moore, Brad Paisley, Chris Young and several others. Sara Evans will also appear this season, with rumors circulating that the Band Perry and Joe Nichols will join Yearwood in her episode.
