Trisha Yearwood took to Facebook Thursday night (April 6) to share some news with her fans—some good and some bad.
The good news is that Trisha’s Southern Kitchen cooking show on The Food Network, is nominated this year for a Daytime Emmy Award. Yay! The bad news, for fans attending the Garth Brooks concert in Champaign, Ill., is that the Daytime Emmy Awards are being held on April 30 in California, the same night Trisha was scheduled to be on tour with her husband, Garth Brooks, at the Champaign stop. As a result Trisha will not be appearing on the tour for that night.
“Hey everybody, Trisha here….holding my Emmy [her dog],” Trisha said kicking off the video. “I’ve got some good news and some bad news. The good news is Trisha’s Southern Kitchen has been nominated for its second Emmy! It has won one and we’re up for another one. The only bad news is that the Emmy’s is on April 30, which is also a date in Champaign, Ill., with my husband Garth Brooks. So, the boss has given me the night off. I will not be at that show. I will be at the Emmy’s.
“But, I wanted do to this (video) with my Emmy, that I’m holding, because I’m really happy with the one that I have. If we don’t win, we’ve already got an Emmy. And, if we do win, hopefully – although you’re doing so good, she’s like what is happening – hopefully the other Emmy won’t be this heavy. Anyway, just wanted to let you guys know. Thank you for your support and go TSK!”
The Garth Brooks World Tour stops in Champaign on April 28-30 at State Farm Center. The April 30 show will be the only show affected by Trisha’s absence.
