Trisha Yearwood gets Country Music Hall of Fame exhibit


In the past few weeks, Trisha Yearwood launched the next season of her cooking show, “Trisha’s Southern Kitchen,” released her new cookbook, “Trisha’s Table: My Feel-Good Favorites for a Balanced Life,” and viewed her new furniture line.

This summer, Yearwood will achieve another career milestone — an exhibit in her honor at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum.

“Trisha Yearwood: The Song Remembers When” will open July 3 and run through December. The exhibit will lead viewers through her life, career and musical achievements. From Monticello, Ga., Yearwood attended college at Belmont University, was a tour guide at the Country Music Hall of Fame and a receptionist at a record label before she became a Grammy-winning country artist and celebrity.

“She was the first female country singer to have a debut album sell 1 million copies in its first year, driven by her first No. 1 single, ‘She’s in Love with the Boy,’ ” museum CEO Kyle Young said in a statement. “And that was only her first milestone. This exhibit shares her story — from small-town roots to platinum albums.”
