Trisha Yearwood has begun filming a daytime cooking show in Nashville for the Food Network, according to the singer’s website. The six episode as-yet-untitled series set to premiere in April will also feature her new music. Yearwood’s last studio album was 2007′s Heaven, Heartache and the Power of Love.
The singer and two-time cookbook author will share food traditions with friends and family, and put her southern hospitality on display while hosting Sunday dinners and family reunion barbecues. Each of the six episodes will have a theme and allow viewers into Yearwood’s kitchen for her favorite meals and family stories. The series will be produced by former Oprah Winfrey Show executive producer Ellen Rakieten’s company and RelativityREAL.
“Fans know Trisha best as a music powerhouse, and through her new Food Network show audiences will learn first-hand what her friends and family already know – that Trisha is a talented, passionate rock-star cook too,” said Food Network GM and Senior VP of Programming and Production Bob Tuschman. “We look forward to sharing this side of Trisha with viewers, showcasing an intimate, entertaining look at her personal recipes, family traditions and warm Southern hospitality.”
“I’m having such a great time filming this show for Food Network!” said Yearwood in a Facebook status update, “Don’t worry, music fans, I’m working on a new record, too! There will be food and some music on this show…stay tuned!”
