Trisha Yearwood’s ‘Every Girl’ Album Will Feature Kelly Clarkson + More
Trisha Yearwood has announced the track listing for her upcoming album, Every Girl, which includes several collaborations with an impressive all-star roster.
Yearwood teamed with her husband and frequent collaborator Garth Brooks for a song titled "What Gave Me Away." Every Girl also features Kelly Clarkson on "Tell Me Something I Don't Know," and Don Henley — who has previously sung with Yearwood on both "Walkaway Joe" and "Inside Out" — joins her again on the new album's closing track, "Love You Anyway."
Yearwood worked with her longtime producer, Garth Fundis, on Every Girl, and she drew from some of the most respected songwriters in Nashville for the project, including Lucie Silvas, Caitlyn Smith, Patricia Conroy, Ashley McBryde, Gretchen Peters and more. The singer is a huge fan of Linda Ronstadt, and she reached out to songwriter Karla Bonoff for a collaboration as well. She wound up recording a song titled “Home,” which Bonnie Raitt originally cut.
“I approached this album without any pressure or expectations,” Yearwood says in a press release. “I’m so grateful the songs were there. I found 14 tunes I couldn’t live without. You want people to recognize you as an artist, but you also want to take them somewhere they haven’t necessarily been with you before. With the freedom of no expectations, I got back to that feeling I felt on my first album, like I have to do this and put it out there. Over the years, I let go of worrying about perfection. I just wanted to have a good time. I realized maybe that’s when you do your best work.”
Yearwood released the album's first single, "Every Girl in This Town," in June. Every Girl is set for release on Aug. 30. It is currently available for pre-order. A limited edition version of the album that features special cover art in vinyl and CD formats will also be available for pre-order for a limited time via Yearwood's Talk Shop Live channel.
Yearwood is slated to kick off her Every Girl on Tour on Oct. 3.
