From Monticello, Georgia, to Music City, Trisha Yearwood’s story from small-town girl to superstardom is truly the stuff of country music legend. To celebrate it, the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum is giving Yearwood her very own exhibit.
Trisha Yearwood: The Song Remembers When will give fans and museum visitors a sneak-peek into the star’s journey with a sizable collection of artifacts and memorabilia poised to tell the Georgia native’s incredible story.
It’s really a beautiful full-circle moment. One of Yearwood’s first “gigs” after graduating as a music business major from Belmont University in Nashville was serving as a tour guide at the museum. And now she’s going to be featured in an exhibit there.
It’s much deserved. The Grammy-winning singer was the first female country artist to have a debut album sell 1 million copies in its first year. Now with a host of hit singles and platinum albums and hits, an Emmy-winning cooking show and multiple CMA and ACM awards, Yearwood has earned her place in country music history.
The exhibit opens July 3 and runs through December.
