Belmont University’s Curb Cafe was the setting Friday for a taping of a Great American Country (GAC) Prime time Special Series interview with country music recording star Trisha Yearwood, a Belmont alumna. About 100 students filled the audience for the special, produced by Jim Owens Productions and interviewer Lorriane Crook. The special will air at a future date on the cable country music channel.
A native of Monticello, Georgia, Yearwood served her apprenticeship in Nashville as a student at Belmont University, a receptionist at MTM Records and as a “demo” singer for dozens of aspiring songwriters before signing with MCA Records. Her hits include “She’s In Love With the Boy,” “That’s What I Like About You,” “The Woman Before Me,” “XXX’s and OOO’s,” “A Perfect Love,” and “Walkaway Joe.”
