"I can face any wind no matter how hard it blows"

"This recording goes to the very heart of what it means to be human, to be frail, to be mistaken, and yes, to be heartbroken. Yeah, that sounds like a lot to swallow at one sitting ... if we just "had that chance again." This is a marvelous recording, a great moment in time for Yearwood and her talented collaborators in memorable music. Please note, this sort of thing just doesn't happen very often. Think about it: "The Wrong Side of Memphis," "Walkaway Joe," "Woman Walk the Line," "Down on My Knees" (good god yes!), "Hearts in Armor," and everything else, including "You Say You Will." This music is timeless, if your heart is open. Yearwood reaches into dark, fearful, but wondrous depths that no deep cavern has ever dreamed. ("Begging you please, don't take your love from me.") If you've ever wondered why Yearwood is held in such high regard as a talented artist, then listen to this recording carefully. You'll figure it out....("I've come far enough to know, love's worth not letting go of.")"
Excellent second album

"Trisha Yearwood didn't falter at all with her sophomore album HEARTS IN ARMOR. In fact, it's even better than her debut in my estimation. Working with top songwriters again, she really starts to develop her sound even more on this album. The album opens with her hit, "Wrong Side of Memphis", which was written by Matraca Berg and Gary Harrison. A definite highlight is the sassy "You Say You Will" which shows her vocal power. My favorite ballad on the album is the heartwrenching song "Down On My Knees" where Trisha sings about having to live without someone's love, she really makes you feel her pain in this song. It was a big hit for her. So was the duet with Don Henley called "Walkaway Joe", which tells a sad story. She also manages a cover of Emmylou Harris' "Women Walk The Line", with Harris singing background vocals. The closing title track is heartbreaking and honest. Overall a strong effort from Yearwood."
