Trisha Yearwood to Be Featured in Country Music Hall of Fame Exhibit
Trisha Yearwood has sold more than 12 million albums, released 10 studio records and won numerous awards; she also hosts her own Emmy-nominated TV show, Trisha's Southern Kitchen, on the Food Network and has released three best-selling cookbooks. And now, the singer will have her own exhibit at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum in honor of her numerous achievements.
Trisha Yearwood: The Song Remembers When will open on July 3 and run through December. The exhibit will include items from Yearwood's childhood in Monticello, Ga., which was followed by her move to Nashville to attend college. She worked as a receptionist at a record label and a tour guide at the Country Music Hall of Fame before launching her extraordinary career -- all moments in Yearwood's life that the exhibit will cover.
“With a powerful voice and inspiring music, Trisha is an extremely talented, award-winning singer and longtime friend of the museum, dating back to her days as a tour guide here at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum. We’re proud to host her exhibit,” museum CEO Kyle Young says. “She was the first female country singer to have a debut album sell one million copies in its first year, driven by her first No. 1 single, "She’s in Love with the Boy." And that was only her first milestone. This exhibit shares her story — from small-town roots to platinum albums.”
The Grand Ole Opry member is currently crossing the country with her husband Garth Brooks on his World Tour, which will head to Knoxville, Tenn., for a series of shows later this month. A list of all of Yearwood's upcoming shows is available on her website.
