Trisha Yearwood Celebrates 20th Opry Anniversary With Star-Studded Show

Trisha Yearwood celebrated the 20th anniversary of her Grand Ole Opry induction with an appearance on the Opry on March 12.

A number of artists attended the show to help Trisha celebrate, including Ricky Skaggs—who surprised Trisha with the invitation to the join the Opry 20 years ago; Emmylou Harris, who Trisha cites as her musical hero; and, of course, husband Garth Brooks. In addition, Kelly Clarkson, Reba McEntire and Brenda Lee shared video messages.

Trisha’s set list included a cover of Patsy Cline’s “Sweet Dreams,” “Wrong Side of Memphis,” a duet with Ricky on “Two Highways,” a duet with Garth on “Whiskey to Wine,” and “She’s in Love With the Boy.”

Trisha, who was inducted into the Opry on March 13, 1999, by Porter Wagoner, cites the occasion as one of the seminal moments in her storied career.

“It’s been a really emotional day for me—I think maybe more emotional for me than when I was inducted 20 years ago,” said Trisha. “And I think it’s because as much as I thought I ‘got it’ then, I really get it now. It’s been such a wonderful day.”
