Heaven, Heartache and the Power of Love - Trisha Yearwood
Trisha Yearwood was one of the first country stars that I liked, way back in the mid 1990's. This is her 12th studio album, her first for a new label, and it's as if nothing has changed.
And realistically, nothing much has, her 2005 marriage to Garth Brooks aside.
But that doesn't need to be a criticism, because Yearwood had good old fashioned country and western nailed down a long, long time ago.
Equally adept at up-tempo numbers, such as the title track, as she is at the ballads, the pick of those being Help Me, Yearwood once again proves her vocal talent on this great album. She rarely disappoints, but this time she's excelled.
