Trisha Yearwood was born in Monticello, Georgia in 1964. During her school days she enjoyed listening to country music tunes and was inspired by the likes of Patsy Cline and Hank Williams. She developed a love for Southern rock bands such as the Eagles and The Allman Brothers Band.
After earning a degree in business administration, Yearwood had the opportunity to do an internship at MTM Records. Eventually she was hired as a full time employee. Availing the resources available to her at the company, Trisha recorded many demo tapes and worked as a back-up singer for a number of music artists.

The success of Trisha’s debut album was followed by the release of her second record ‘Hearts in Armor’ in 1992. It produced a number of hit tracks such as ‘You Say You Will,’ ‘Wrong Side of Memphis’ and ‘Down on My Knees.’
