Trisha Yearwood has announced the track listing for her upcoming album, Every Girl, which includes several collaborations with an impressive all-star roster.
Yearwood teamed with her husband and frequent collaborator Garth Brooks for a song titled “What Gave Me Away.” Every Girl also features Kelly Clarkson on “Tell Me Something I Don’t Know,” and Don Henley — who has previously sung with Yearwood on both “Walkaway Joe” and “Inside Out” — joins her again on the new album’s closing track, “Love You Anyway.”
Yearwood worked with her longtime producer, Garth Fundis, on Every Girl, and she drew from some of the most respected songwriters in Nashville for the project, including Lucie Silvas, Caitlyn Smith, Patricia Conroy, Ashley McBryde, Gretchen Peters and more. The singer is a huge fan of Linda Ronstadt, and she reached out to songwriter Karla Bonoff for a collaboration as well. She wound up recording a song titled “Home,” which Bonnie Raitt originally cut.
“I approached this album without any pressure or expectations,” Yearwood says in a press release. “I’m so grateful the songs were there. I found 14 tunes I couldn’t live without. You want people to recognize you as an artist, but you also want to take them somewhere they haven’t necessarily been with you before. With the freedom of no expectations, I got back to that feeling I felt on my first album, like I have to do this and put it out there. Over the years, I let go of worrying about perfection. I just wanted to have a good time. I realized maybe that’s when you do your best work.”
Yearwood released the album’s first single, “Every Girl in This Town,” in June. Every Girl is set for release on Aug. 30. It is currently available for pre-order. A limited edition version of the album that features special cover art in vinyl and CD formats will also be available for pre-order for a limited time via Yearwood’s Talk Shop Live channel.
Yearwood is slated to kick off her Every Girl on Tour on Oct. 3.

See how Kelly Clarkson turned Hoda Kotb’s book into a beautiful lullaby
Hoda Kotb’s little 1-year old Haley Joy is a total inspiration — but not just to her mom.
She’s also inspired a brand-new song and video by pop superstar Kelly Clarkson, a song that itself was inspired by Hoda’s new book, “I’ve Loved You Since Forever.”
Talk about an ode to (Haley) joy!
Clarkson is a longtime friend to TODAY and Hoda, and as the TODAY anchor noted on Thursday, once she’d written the book about her daughter, she had a new thought. “Wouldn’t that be cool if someone could sing the book?” Hoda said.
Once that idea was in place, there was no question: Kelly Clarkson was the best and only choice!
“There is one person I know who has a voice that is in a class by itself,” said Hoda, 53.
So on Thursday, Hoda took us behind-the-scenes at Atlantic Records, where Clarkson was recording the tune. And naturally, she got a chance to join in, shaking a little rattle in time to the song.
But the rattle, along with Clarkson’s sweet voice, also got the tears rolling, and soon the ladies were hugging it out.
“I made it more like a lullaby, like James Taylor, like there’s kind of some Patty Griffin in it,” Clarkson told Hoda. “I hope we do it justice.”
Well, we sure think she does (not that we ever had a doubt). And if Hoda’s reaction is anything to go by, we’d say she hit the nail right on the head.
So what does Haley Joy think?
Well, let’s just say we can hear her adorable giggle from here.
I am so excited to share Meaning of Life with y’all. This has been the most challenging record to make but also the most enjoyable. The musicians, singers, producers, and everyone that worked on this album have been such a blessing in my life and have helped me create the best album of my career that represents me the most not only as a singer but as a person. This album is 100% me. From start to finish I hope y’all love the sass and confidence that this album represents! Every album of mine has been a mini representation of my life at that point and this album is definitely an indication of how blessed, strong, and happy I am in my life right now. I could not be more grateful for all of you because I wouldn’t have been able to make this album had y’all not been supporting me for the last 15 years so THANK YOU 🙂 and I hope you dig Meaning of Life. See y’all on tour!
