Trisha Yearwood - Jasper County
By Justin Renton
The new Trisha Yearwood album is sure to be an award-winner, radio favorite and big seller/hit with the fans. With her entire career housed at MCA Nashville, Trisha has taken some time to come out with her latest, Jasper County. Having recently gotten engaged and married to Garth Brooks and overcoming some creative blocks, Jasper County is an album that truly broadens musically, yet remains a complete work. Teaming with her previous producer, Garth Fundis, the song selection is varied, yet solid and unified. With little pop-crossover, this album is definite country with hints of blues and soul. The most interesting and memorable tracks are the forlorn ballad "Trying To Love You" and
the smoking "Pistol." I suggest taking ride a into Jasper County - you won't be disappointed.
