Prizefighter: Hit After Hit

Prizefighter: Hit After Hit

by Trisha Yearwood



Trisha Yearwood's career slowed down not long after her husband Garth Brooks entered retirement in 2001. Two albums followed in the 2000s, 2005's Jasper County and 2007's Heaven, Heartache and the Power of Love, but the upper reaches of the country charts eluded her ("Georgia Rain" peaked at 15 in 2005, the title track from Heaven went to 19 in 2007), and then she took a prolonged break between 2007 and 2014, returning with the collection Prizefighter: Hit After Hit the same month as Brooks mounted his comeback with Man Against Machine. Comparatively, Yearwood's return to action wasn't as splashy: she showcased her six new songs, highlighted by the Kelly Clarkson duet "Prizefighter," next to ten of her standards. Yearwood has had more than ten hits -- and she's also had no fewer than five compilations -- but the hits here are well chosen ("She's in Love with the Boy," "How Do I Live," "Wrong Side of Memphis, and "The Song Remembers When" are all here), and the new songs are solid enough to raise the question of why she didn't go all the way and craft a brand-new album. Nevertheless, Prizefighter: Hit After Hit winds up as an effective reminder of Yearwood's strengths.

PrizeFighter Hit After Hit by Trisha Yearwood is a collection of 16 profound country hits on one cd. I am previously a little familiar with some of Trisha Yearwood’s music because around the time I was 11 or 12 there was a brief period where my late adoptive mother and older adoptive sister would frequently play the songs She’s In Love With The Boy and That’s What I Like About You (probably from a cassette that one of them had). She shows a vast emotional range on the cd with both her duets such as Prizefighter feat. Kelly Clarkson, Walkaway Joe (feat. Don Henley), and In Another’s Eyes (feat. her husband Garth Brooks) as well as the non-duets with tunes such as I Remember You, Perfect Love, How Do I Live etc.
