She is best known for her ballads about vulnerable young women from a female perspective that have been described by some music critics as “strong” and “confident.” Trisha Yearwood signed with MCA Records in 1990. Her second album release, Hearts in Armor (1992) reflected Yearwood’s own personal issues, which won her widespread critical acclaim among music critics and further success in country music. in addition she also set aside a project to release her first cookbook in April 2008 titled Georgia Cooking in an Oklahoma Kitchen, which consisted of southern cooking recipes from Yearwood, her mother and sister. With the help of the record label’s resources, she recorded a series of demo tapes and also sang background vocals for new artists.
