The Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum announced today the exhibition Trisha Yearwood: The Song Remembers When. The exhibition opens July 3 and runs through December.
The exhibition will chronicle Yearwood’s life, career and musical achievements. The story begins in her tiny hometown, Monticello, Ga., and is followed by a move to Nashville, where Yearwood becomes a music business major at Belmont University. The future three-time Grammy award-winning artist began her career in music, spending time first as a tour guide at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum and a receptionist at a record company.
“With a powerful voice and inspiring music, Trisha is an extremely talented, award-winning singer and long-time friend of the museum, dating back to her days as a tour guide here at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum. We’re proud to host her exhibit,” said museum CEO Kyle Young. “She was the first female country singer to have a debut album sell 1 million copies in its first year, driven by her first number 1 single ‘She’s in Love with the Boy.’ And that was only her first milestone. This exhibit shares her story – from small-town roots to platinum albums.”
Yearwood currently is on tour with her husband, Garth Broooks.
