“We are beyond excited that the extremely talented Trisha Yearwood paid a visit to our CBS Radio Culinary Kitchen,” said US99 Music Director, Marci Braun. “She has truly become a food and lifestyle maven and we were very honored to have her give our audience a first look at some items from her new line.”
Yearwood’s debut single in 1991, “She’s In Love With The Boy” reached #1 on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs and launched a successful music career, selling over 15 million albums worldwide. She has achieved much music industry recognition, not the least, receiving Grammy and Academy of Country Music Awards. Yearwood is currently on tour with her husband and fellow country music superstar, Garth Brooks. In 2013, she received an Emmy Award for “Outstanding Culinary Program” for her show on the Food Network, Trisha’s Southern Kitchen.
