The Stunning Transformation of Trisha Yearwood


Trisha Yearwood, who hails from the small farm town of Monticello, Ga., was a self-proclaimed "nerd" who had a passion for music from the time she was 5 years old. To Country Living, Yearwood called her childhood home an "organic heaven, before organic was cool." Her mother was a great cook, and her father was a banker and "farmer at heart" who raised cattle, hogs, and chicken on the family farm. Meanwhile, she had dreams of a career in music.

"Music, from the time I was probably about five years old, was my obsession," she said during a Q&A at the Country Music Hall of Fame, as The Boot reported. "I was going to say passion, but I really was obsessed; I really didn't want to do anything else."

At 15 years old, Yearwood wanted to drop out of school to go get herself a country music record deal, but her parents wouldn't allow her. As Yearwood wrote in an article for Good Housekeepingshe graduated from high school and pursued higher education.
