Trisha Yearwood to give keynote at Nashville’s Women in Business luncheon

Trisha Yearwood will conduct a keynote Q&A at Nashville Lifestyles’ fourth annual Women in Business event on August 10th at the Schermerhorn Symphony Center.

This networking luncheon will include a style show from Dillard’s at The Mall at Green Hills, followed by the keynote from Trisha Yearwood and finally a panel of the featured women from the August issue of Nashville Lifestyles.

Trisha Yearwood is a platinum-selling, multiple Grammy, CMA and ACM Award winning vocalist with one of the most powerful voices in country music. Her first cookbook, “Georgia Cooking in an Oklahoma Kitchen” debuted on the New York Times Bestsellers list in 2008 and opened doors that allowed the cookbook to come to life as her own Food Network show, Trisha’s Southern Kitchen. It premiered in 2012, then earned an Emmy Award the following year. To date, each of her Bestselling cookbooks found the same warm reception as the first (“Home Cooking with Trisha Yearwood” in 2010; “Trisha’s Table” in 2015) and Food Network is now preparing to air the tenth season of her show, Trisha’s Southern Kitchen. As if that weren’t enough, her Trisha Yearwood Home Collection encompasses her line of furniture for the whole home, a cookware line called Trisha’s Precious Metals, rugs, eight different home collections of home accessories, and her own signature Trisha Yearwood fragrance. Yearwood has recently expanded her lifestyle empire with her first food line sold exclusively at Williams Sonoma.
