Trisha Yearwood

When joined by Don Henley on three of the set's several standouts, among them "Hearts in Armor" the title track from her new MCA disc, and "Walkaway Joe," the album's next single, Yearwood could have been overshadowed by the presence of one of her admitted idols.

When joined by Don Henley on three of the set’s several standouts, among them “Hearts in Armor” the title track from her new MCA disc, and “Walkaway Joe,” the album’s next single, Yearwood could have been overshadowed by the presence of one of her admitted idols.

But the country singer made her own mark, wowing the house of contest winners and industryites with the vocal control of Reba McEntire and the reach of Linda Ronstadt.

Yearwood’s forceful vocals easily conceal that she doesn’t write her own songs. The former demo singer sings each tune with conviction, as though she has experienced each lyric.

Proving that ballads are her forte, Yearwood’s sing-the-roof off rendition of “Down on My Knees,” a song that could score big with adult contemporary as easily as country stations, illustrates there’s more to Yearwood than her girl-next-door good looks and sisterly charm.

Production: Promoted by KZLA and Entertainment Radio Networks. Reviewed Oct. 14, 1992 .

Cast: Band: Tim Lauer, Tammy Rogers, Johnny Garcia, Ric McClure, Jay Hager, Tim Hurst.With the Roxy looking more like a set from the Nashville Network than a home to denizens of the Strip, and a radio feed broadcasting the show to stations across the country, Trisha Yearwood delivered a flawless performance Tuesday, her compelling vocals demonstrating that her recording career could extend beyond country music, if she so chooses.
