Yearwood, Mellencamp Pair Up on ‘Pink Houses’

Trisha Yearwood joined John Mellencamp on stage Monday night (Aug. 6) during his performance of “Pink Houses” at Red Rocks Amphitheatre, outside Denver. Yearwood opened for Mellencamp and drew two standing ovations, according to a news release from her publicist. She did not perform Mellencamp’s “Small Town,” though she frequently does the song to close her own shows. She quipped that it seemed an inappropriate choice on this particular night. Yearwood appears on “Deep Blue Heart” a track on Mellencamp’s upcoming album, Cuttin’ Heads. She’ll do a benefit concert for the World Children’s Center Saturday (Aug. 11) at the Fox Theatre in Atlanta. 08/07/01
