Trisha Yearwood could be considered a “Triple Threat” in the country music genre. Having garnered the trifecta of three Grammys, an Oscar-nominated song, and being the first female country singer to sell a million copies of her 1991 self-titled debut, she is indeed the marker of success to which all country female singers aspire. As a Garth Brooks protégée, Yearwood began her career singing backup on his ’89 debut. Appearing again on Brooks’ follow-up, No Fences, soon she was sought out by MCA who released her self-titled debut. More than a decade later – with nine blockbuster albums and a string of chart-topping singles under her talented belt – Yearwood returns with her 10th album, Jasper County. The album will premiere in September 2005.

Yearwood joins the Soundstage ranks, bringing with her a few special guests. Launching the show is Billy Currington, who performs the title track to his forthcoming sophomore album, Doin’ Somethin’ Right, which will see its release in October 2005. The trio Sugarland follows him. Performing songs from 2004’s Twice The Speed Of Light, the talented Jennifer Nettles, Kristen Hall, and Kristian Bush are a fine lead in to the highlight of the show. Yearwood takes the stage performing some of her finest hits, including her very first single, “She’s In Love With A Boy,” “Xxx’s And Oooo’s (An American Girl)” from ‘95s Thinking About You, and the Diane Warren-penned “How Do I Live.”
