Trisha Yearwood Talks Patsy Cline, Performs ‘Every Girl’


– I’m gonna first pay
tribute to one of my heroes. When I was a tour guide, I
would always spend most of my time, instead of giving
tours like I was supposed to be, I was in the Elvis and Patsy Cline movies. You could go sit in and
watch these little three and a half, four-minute
movies, and Patsy Cline was one of the first female
artists that I heard that inspired me because she just
had this big, powerful voice. ♪ Why can’t I forget you ♪ ♪ And start my life anew ♪ Well, you know, Patsy Cline
came along at a time where there weren’t very many
female artists making country music or being played on the radio. Patsy is that woman who
was such a force to be reckoned with, and such a powerful voice, and to me, just sang with such emotion so she’s probably the first
female singer that I heard as a kid on my parents’
records that I said, “I wanna sing like that.” ♪ Like every girl in this town ♪ Every girl and everybody
who loves an every girl, this is a song and almost a
movement about loving yourself, giving yourself permission
to not be perfect and to remember that
everybody has a dream. We all do, whether you dream
of being a country music singer or whatever your dream
is, to not forget that. (audience applause) Thank you, Hall of Fame! We’ll see you next time.
