Heaven, Heartache and the Power of Love |
REVIEWED BY RANDY VEST
Trisha Yearwood offers up some memorable story songs on this follow-up to 2005’s Jasper County, infusing each tale with her pitch-perfect delivery. “Nothin’ ‘Bout Memphis” finds a guilt-ridden woman hiding a past romance from her current lover, while “Dreaming Fields” is an achingly beautiful reminiscence of a 1940s couple who lose the family farm. But the mood here is not all downbeat. “Nothin’ About You Is Good for Me” is a boisterous rebuke of a low-down lothario, and “Cowboys Are My Weakness” is a loping two-stepper that playfully nods to hubby Garth Brooks.
