Trisha Yearwood’s Treasure Trove Hits Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum

New Exhibit Showcases Georgia Native’s Life and Career

Ever wondered what Trisha Yearwood looked like in her high school days? Now you can see for yourself with a trip to the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum in Nashville.

Her 1982 yearbook (she was the editor) is just one of the many treasures on display in Trisha Yearwood: The Song Remembers When, the new exhibit which just celebrated its big opening.

And the yearbook is just the beginning.

Among the other fascinating artifacts on display include her 1997 Grammy, the copy of her debut album she bought the day it was released, a handwritten receipt for her first demo recording in 1983 (paid for by her father) and an early letter of encouragement from Johnny Cash.

The exhibit also includes some gowns, including the ones she wore at the 1992 ACM Awards and 1997 Grammy Awards gowns and — wait for it — the wedding gown she wore when she married Garth Brooks in 2005.

Yearwood told ABC Radio it was a joy to put everything together for this exhibit because her late mother Gwen was responsible for many of the items we get to see.

“My mom, who was the president of my fan club, she saved everything,” Yearwood said. “So going back and finding things to put into this exhibit has been really fun. And to see everything that she saved has been pretty amazing.”

Amazing indeed. We can’t wait to check it out. The exhibit runs through Dec. 31.
