As a young girl growing up in the small town of Monticello, Georgia, Trisha Yearwood dreamed of being a famous singer. She released her first album in 1991. Yearwood has since sold more than 12.5 million albums worldwide and has won three Grammy Awards, three Country Music Association Awards, two Academy of Country Music Awards, an American Music Award and a Pollstar Industry Award for touring.
In this week’s episode of Who Do You Think You Are?, Yearwood visits the Nashville Public Library to begin her search for information on the paternal side of her family. It’s a search that eventually leads her to England where she learns about her family’s history of crime, loss and perseverance.
The program is scheduled to appear September 3 at 9 p.m. Eastern/8 p.m. Central, on TLC. However, check your local listings for the time and channel near you as cable systems often "time shift" programs and broadcast them at different times.
