New Brunswick, NJ (PRWEB) February 26, 2014
State Theatre presents Grammy® Award-winning Country artist Trisha Yearwood on Wednesday, March 12, 2014 at 8pm. The concert will feature fan favorites and beloved hits from her numerous albums that have sold over 12 million copies over the course of her esteemed career. Opening for Trisha Yearwood will be special guest, singer songwriter Karyn Rochelle. Tickets range from $35-85.
One of the highest-selling female artists in Country music history, a New York Times Bestselling cookbook author, and now a Food Network star, Trisha Yearwood has a habit of surpassing expectations. Since her 1991 debut, Yearwood has recorded 12 albums and achieved a hit-list of nine #1 hits and 20 Top Ten hits under her belt, including “She’s in Love With the Boy,” “Walkaway Joe,” and “How Do I Live.”
In an unexpected twist, Yearwood turned her favorite hobby into a family project with a cookbook series that combines Yearwood family anecdotes and recipes. In 2008, she released Georgia Cooking in an Oklahoma Kitchen and in 2010 Home Cooking with Trisha Yearwood, both of which debuted on the New York Times Bestseller list. The success of the books led to her Food Network show, Trisha’s Southern Kitchen which debuted in April 2012, won a 2013 Daytime Emmy® for Outstanding Culinary Program and is now in its fourth season.
In addition to three Grammy® Awards, the Grand Ole Opry member has won three Country Music Awards and two Academy of Country Music Awards.
