SONGBOOK combines 10 hits from the first part of Yearwood's career (through 1995's THINKIN' ABOUT YOU) with a soundtrack cut ("How Do I Live," from "Con Air") and a new duet with Garth Brooks ("In Another's Eyes"). The album makes a case for Yearwood as one of the finest country singers of the '90s. Yearwood's painfully real portraits of lovers on the ropes are rigorously absent of the standard Nashville tricks. There are no cookie-cutter melodies, no needless swings into honky-tonk nostalgia, no superfluous steel guitars, no emotional resolutions achieved in two perfect verses--just stuff that's real.
In "Like We Never Had A Broken Heart" (another duet with Brooks, from her debut album), she tries to patch up a failing affair with a good night of sex, advising her partner, "Pretend I'm someone that you love." The heroine of "XXX's and OOO's" wakes up to this casually brutal world: "Phone rings/Baby cries/TV diet guru lies." Yearwood sings with a matter-of-fact emotion that acknowledges the struggles and the sadness (and occasional bliss) without ever overdoing it. She trusts these songs, and the degree to which she doesn't cry all over them suggests a confidence in the material that's increasingly rare in Nashville.
Artist Overview
Often hailed as Linda Ronstadt's successor, Trisha Yearwood became one of the 1990s' most respected and popular country music artists by virtue of her magnificent voice and her choice of intelligent, quality material. She has the distinction of being the first female country singer to reach Number One on the country charts with a debut single. A multiple Grammy-winner, the versatile Yearwood has duetted with the likes of Aaron Neville, Don Henley and Garth Brooks, and for a time was married to Mavericks bassist Robert Reynolds.
