Born in 1964 in the small farming town of Monticello, Georgia, Trisha Yearwood became one of the most popular female country singers beginning in the 1990's. She studied music business at Nashville's Belmont College and interned at MTM Records before being hired as a backup vocalist by country star Garth Brooks. Yearwood was the first female country singer to sell a million copies of a debut album. She won Female Vocalist of the Year recognition from the Academy of Country Music in 1997 and 1998. Yearwood has also won three Grammy awards and had a recurring acting role on the television show "JAG".
Award-winning country-music star Yearwood grew up in Georgia and now lives in Oklahoma with her husband, Garth Brooks, and children. Several years ago, her mother, Gwen, and sister, Beth, put together a notebook of favorite family recipes for Trisha's birthday, which in turn inspired this compilation. All the recipes are simple and range from community-cookbook standards like Chicken Baked in Cornflake Crumbs and Pink
[Gelatin] - Salad to Southern classics such as Garlic Grits Casserole. There are color photographs throughout, along with personal anecdotes from the three Yearwood women. Buy for demand.
