Trisha Yearwood

Trisha Yearwood’s personal theme song seems to be “Do It All — with Love and Maybe a Great Sauce.” As much of a force in the kitchen as she is on stage, Trisha shares healthy twists on homestyle Southern favorites (along with a smattering of indulgences) in her newest book, Trisha’s Table: My Feel-Good Favorites for a Balanced Life. The balanced life she cooks up for herself and husband, Garth Brooks, includes their recent concert tour together that broke ticket-sale records across the country. Trisha’s a country superstar on her own with more than 15 million albums sold worldwide and a shelf full of awards, but her family is still the main course. Her sister, Beth, co-wrote Trisha’s Table and is a big part of Trisha’s Southern Kitchen on the Food Network. Trisha calls herself a “bonus mom” to Garth’s three daughters and, despite her mega-star status, makes the rest of us feel like she’s inviting us over for a good meal and a great talk.
