In a male-dominated career field like country music, any advice would be much appreciated to help the ladies stand out and rise to the top alongside the men, especially from someone who knows the ropes. That being said, if you were an emerging female country singer, there are many artists you’d probably want to get advice from, and we’re pretty sure Trisha Yearwood would be pretty close to the top.
With hits like, “She’s In Love With The Boy”, “How Do I Live” and “Walkaway Joe” under her belt, there’s definitely some tidbits of wisdom she could share. She’s been at it for twenty-four years after all and is still going strong, so she definitely knows how the business works.
In an interview with CountryMusicIsLove.com, Yearwood expresses how hard it is to be unique and stand out among the crowd. “I think women have an opportunity to be unique as long as we make sure we are, don’t try and be somebody else,” Yearwood says. Be different, but don’t lose yourself in the process.
“The most important voice to listen to is the one in your head because everybody is going to be telling you something else. As long as you go to sleep at night and go, “I made that decision, right or wrong, for me.” That’s the most important thing.”
Yearwood says it best in her newest single, “Prizefighter”: “When you hit the ground, you find your wings / You go one more round when that bell rings / They say you’re done, but here you come / You’re a hammer hittin’, spittin’ fire, PrizeFighter / When you’re sweating from the fear, you look it the eye / Turn the sound of defeat into your battle cry / Stakes are down, you’re outta luck / Look at you, smiling with a shiner, standing higher.”
More than anything, Yearwood expresses that the ladies stay true to themselves and the rest will fall into place. Great advice, Trisha!
