Playing Trisha Yearwood: I'm the Happiest I've Ever Been

Singer-author-actress Trisha Yearwood is busier than ever these days, and she's never felt better.

"I'm definitely the happiest I've ever been in my life," Trisha told ET. "You find what makes you happy and it's usually being with the person you want to be with."

Trisha has been sharing the stage with husband Garth Brooks on their world tour and sharing the kitchen with sister Beth on her Emmy-winning Food Network show Trisha's Southern Kitchen. Her third cookbook, Trisha's Table, is on shelves now, and she told us what makes this one different from the other two.

"We've done the fried chicken. We've done the mashed potatoes and gravy," Trisha said. "This book has a little bit more of a balance of lighter things along with those comfort foods."

The sixth season of Trisha's Southern Kitchen premieres on April 18 and fans can expect more of the same magic they've been tuning in for.

"We'll just try to have more fun if possible," Trisha said.

Even with everything she has going on, Trisha hasn't stopped singing. Her current hit "I Remember You" is off her 12th album Prizefighter. The song was inspired by her late mother.

"I lost my mom to breast cancer about three years ago, and it has changed me forever," Trisha said. "It's a song about loss but it's also about how that person is still with you."

Fans can expect to see Trisha on the red carpet later this month as the ACMs air April 19 on CBS. The award show means so much to Trisha that she and her husband are pausing their record-breaking tour for the event.

"The first award I ever won was for Best New Artist from the ACMs, so they always will hold a special place in my heart," Trisha said. "And this year my husband's up for Entertainer of the Year, so I'm going to be arm candy and hope he takes home a trophy."
