Über Trisha Yearwood
After spending a number of years working as a demo singer, country superstar Trisha Yearwood burst on the scene in 1991 with the hit single "She's In Love with the Boy," and has stayed at the top of the charts ever since. Her friendship with Garth Brooks scored her an opening slot on one of his tours, which proved instrumental in propelling her so quickly to stardom. Yearwood is an impressively expressive and nuanced singer who's at home with diva-style country pop ballads and -- seemingly -- all other manner of country material. Her records aren't always consistent, but she's not afraid to choose material from some cooler, lesser known songwriters like Kim Richey, Pat McLaughlin and Kevin Welch.
