Trisha Yearwood is country music royalty. Married to superstar Garth Brooks, the Grand Ole Opry member shot to fame in the early 1990's and has since sold over 12.5 million albums worldwide, won three Grammys, three Country Music Association Awards, and performed at the White House during President Bill Clinton's inauguration. If that's not enough, the gorgeous singer is also a two-time New York Times bestselling author, hosts Trisha's Southern Kitchen on Food Network, and kicks off a country-wide tour this Wednesday, February 19 at the Broward Center for the Performing Arts. If you're wondering how Yearwood went from microphone to food processor, the story is as down home as the dishes she demonstrates on her Emmy-award winning television show. "It's a complete second career. I'm as surprised as anybody," she tells us. We spoke with the country star about family, the art of storytelling, and even got a few kitchen tips.
