(Nashville, Tenn. – Feb. 10, 2017) One of Country Music’s favorite female vocalists, Trisha Yearwood, will open CRS 2017 with a performance of the national anthem, to be held Feb. 22-24. Yearwood’s performance will kick off CRS 2017’s Opening Ceremonies, sponsored by Sarah Cannon, at the Omni Nashville on Wednesday, Feb. 22 at 3 p.m. CT.
Trisha Yearwood possesses one of the most powerful female voices in Country music. The platinum-selling, multiple Grammy, CMA and ACM winning artist’s twelfth album, PrizeFighter: Hit After Hit, combined both her new and iconic songs from her revered catalogue in 2014. On television, her larger-than-life talent in The Passion, a two-hour, live musical event on FOX, helped tell one of the greatest historical stories to an audience of millions in March 2016. On November 11th, the first-ever duets collaboration between Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood was released for the Holiday Season. Christmas Together (Pearl Records, Nov. 11) features duets, solo performances and special guest appearances.
Additionally, the “CEO with Southern charm” has also developed her own growing lifestyle empire in recent years. The Trisha Yearwood Home Collection encompasses three New York Times Bestselling cookbooks, cookware, furniture, home accessories, area rugs and the newly launched fragrance, TRISHA YEARWOOD. Each Saturday morning, Trisha’s Emmy-Award winning Trisha’s Southern Kitchen on Food Network is kicked off by her Facebook Live “pre-show,” T’s Coffee Talk. Both programs have become a weekly hang with Trisha, her friends, and family in a relaxed environment with great food, conversation, and coffee. And of course, most weekends, fans can find her on the road as part of the history making, and ongoing, Garth Brooks World Tour with Trisha Yearwood.
