Trisha Yearwood’s new single "Every Girl in This Town" owns the distinction of being the highest debut by a female in 2019 on the Billboard Hot Country Airplay charts. That’s significant because other genres, like indie-rock and hip-hop, have long embraced women artists while pop country is still playing catch-up when it comes to representation and the way industry bigwigs talk about non-male artists.
Today, the 54-year-old country singer announced that she’s bringing that single’s aspirational message on a solo U.S. tour which hits Clearwater’s Ruth Eckerd Hall on December 6. That’s one day before a rising country star (Kelsey Waldon) plays the same room alongside John Prine.
Tickets to see Yearwood, a three-time Grammy-winner, go on sale Friday, June 21 at 10 a.m. EDT. Admission for the Ruth Eckerd Hall show start at $43.25.
Other Florida stops on the tour include Melbourne (Maxwell C. King Center for the Performing Arts on December 4), Fort Lauderdale (Parker Playhouse on December 5), Jacksonville (Florida Theatre on December 7) and Naples (Hayes Hall on December 8).
For those of you wondering, Yearwood’s husband Garth Brooks does not have shows scheduled in December. No word if she'll hawk $13 barbecue sauce in the parking lot before the show.
