Trisha Yearwood's Connection to Austin City Limits

Trisha Yearwood first appeared on Austin City Limits in 1992 and went on to make two more headlining appearances in 1996 and 2000. She returned to the show in 2015 as a guest of Don Henley. The Austin City Limits website amusingly describes Yearwood as a "country music star and a culinary mastermind," acknowledging her successful TV side-gig as the host of Trisha's Southern Kitchen. Yearwood has been recognized for both her culinary and musical talents, winning a Daytime Emmy in 2013 and multiple Grammy, CMA, and ACM Awards.

Austin City Limits Hall of Fame Legacy

Since 2015, the Austin City Limits Hall of Fame has been inducting one woman every year. Trisha Yearwood follows in the footsteps of Loretta Lynn, Bonnie Raitt, Rosanne Cash, Marcia Ball, Shawn Colvin, Lucinda Williams, and Sheryl Crow. The induction ceremony was not held in 2020 due to the pandemic.

Trisha Yearwood and Don Henley perform on 'The Tonight Show' on September 06, 2001.
