Trisha Yearwood is celebrating thirty years of country music. This is a big win for her, as well as her fans. Why should the Yearwood-loving public be excited about the milestone? Well, for one, it means that one of the best female voices of the 90s is still going strong today. With the disappointing lack of women on country radio today, that in and of itself is a win. However, it is even better than that. Yearwood is celebrating with a new-ish album.
To mark three decades of great country music, Trisha Yearwood is releasing a deluxe edition of her 2019 album Every Girl. The updated release is going to have some really great extras on it. For instance, it will contain an acoustic rendition of her debut single, “She’s in Love with the Boy.” Yearwood kicked off her career with a relatable love story. It was a great tune in its original format. Personally, I can’t wait to hear the acoustic rendition. There’s something about acoustic songs that allow the soul of the artist and the spirit of the song to shine. Too often, those things get lost in production. So, that’s one thing to look forward to. But wait, there’s more!
The deluxe edition of Every Girl will also include a duet with Garth Brooks. It’s no secret that Trisha Yearwood and Garth are a super cute couple. Hearing them perform together is always a treat. To top it all off, they’ll be singing the song “Shallow,” from A Star is Born, according to PopCulture.
