Hey..not to take anything away from Trisha Yearwood but:

Several albums reached new platinum levels in the latest RIAA accounting, led by Jimmy Buffett's 1992 set "Boats, Beaches, Bars & Ballads" and

Trisha Yearwood's 1997 album "Songbook - A Collection," both on MCA Nashville and certified for U.S. shipments of 4 million copies.

This CD had the duet with Garth and I think that's the reason this CD sold so many...I know I bought a couple extra because of Garth...but anyways, it still is a great accomplishment...:)

whooo hoooo!! way to go Ms. Yearwood!!!! very :cool:

actually i think there are two songs with Garth on this C.D

on "Like We Never Had A Broken Heart" he sings back up harmony i think, and isn't "In Another's Eyes" on this also?

i think it's truly a great C.D. and i listen to it as often as i listen to NO FENCES which by the way is my "all time" favorite Garth C.D. :), :)

keep up the good work Trisha!!

Hey everyone, some of you might know me as Terry from TotallYTrisha, and I've been lurking here for many moons...educating myself and thought I'd finally post.

gbkubfan you are no doubt correct, and I'd like to pose myself as the exception to the rule. I never listened to any Garth until I learned Trisha sang background and harmonies on so many of Garth's albums. Ok, yes, my head was buried in the sandy Lake Mich. shoreline and I came late to the dance, but I'm better now.:rolleyes: My all time favorite Garth/Trisha song is Ain't Goin' Down...gosh, how do they sing that without breathing?

My favorite video of Trisha and Garth singing That Ain't The Way I Heard It was when Garth surprised Trisha on Gary Chapman's show. Although Garth did more picking than singing that day, the jokes and banter between Trisha and Garth are priceless.:)

Darn, we didn't get the Meet & Greet passes for this Friday. I sent the email too late. Oh well, I just sent a new request for passes for the New Brunswick show on August 24th. Keeping my fingers crossed!

We got to do a Meet & Greet with Trisha last year in Sewell, NJ and she was the GREATEST! They took us backstage to a room where it was just Cathy & I with Trisha! She takes her time, answering questions, and signs everything that you want... even offering to sign more photos for any friends that might want one!

Get the new CD if you don't have it already! Her voice sounds even better with each new CD, if that's possible!

I'm torturously waiting this week for the TYEmail to appear in my inbox for the Merrillville, Indiana show. I've gotten 2 EMs from them recently but no word on the M&G yet. I hate this waiting. Every time a new EM arrives my heart quickens and I hold my breath as I click to open the mailbox...dang another junk Email...sigh.

I've got a ticket for the New Brunswick show also. Whooo Hooo! What a summer!

OMG!!! Trisha is in AC this Friday - the 13th?? I'm going to be in AC on Friday - any way I can get tix?? Where is she performing?? I missed her when she was 10 min from my house on Jun 30 because I was on vacation...

Kerry,

She's at the Hilton Casino on July 13th at 9pm.

From what I can tell, Shelley got the last ticket and will be coming with us. I've been checking every so often, but there are no tix left on ticketmaster:

https://ticketing.ticketmaster.com/cgi/purchasePage.asp?event_id=20032B803EEABA0&event_code=EGA0713

Try the box office before the show, they ALWAYS have extra tickets at the casinos for the high rollers. If you get there at a good time, you can get a ticket, and usually up front too. Good luck!

Jim :)

Jim -

Thank You! I'll try the Box Office! Hope I can get a ticket AND maybe even meet you guys?? I know what Shelley looks like - I met her in NY in Nov 99 when I went on a Garth-trek - so I'll look for you guys!!

I've never tried to get a ticket at a casino box office before - any idea WHAT TIME I should show up??

Keep your fingers crossed...

Kerry

I am trying to see what the difference is between all her CD's:)
I may be able to help you:)

I just asked someone what the difference here is between the imported ones and the European ones:)

Kerry,

You can see our picture with Trisha in this thread, on my second post. :D Then you know who to look for!

Check the box office as soon as you get there, see what they got, and if they don't have any, check back later. They hold tickets for the high-rollers as comps. If no one claims them close to show time, they will release them to the public.

Jim :)

Thanks Jim! I was starting to get depressed 'cause I called the box office and they said they were sold out and weren't holding any tix for release before show time. I assume (HOPE) that's the 'standard line' and they WILL release some tomorrow. I may not be able to actually get to the casino until after 5 or later. I understand the seating opens at 7:30 with showtime at 9pm - so maybe it's best to just wait until 7:30. Anyway - wish me luck and I'll see you there!

Hi Kerry, I saw your post at TotallyTrisha.com, I was already watching for tix for you. Sometimes people post at the TT message board with spare tickets. You might try posting in the Trading Post section as well. I looked and there's been none offered for AC so far. Good luck for tomorrow.

I have good news though, I got my M&G today for Merrillville. Whooo Hooo!:) :D

Terry - THANKS for checking for me!

JIM - when are you guys arriving - I'll probably be there around 5-5:30 - May check out someplace on the premesis sp? for dinner while I continue to harass the box office people. I will wear my blue 'g' button like the ones that were made for the Opry 75th (I think). Even though I didn't go, I couldn't pass up a cool GB item like that ! I will also have on jeans and a white shirt.

Anyone form that area - are the local radio stations still giving away any tix??

Thanks again everyone,

Kerry
