Trisha Yearwood ended up in the middle of one of 1997's music-industry storms when her version of the big ballad "How Do I Live" aced out teenage sensation LeAnn Rimes' on the soundtrack of Con Air, an action flick everyone immediately forgot about. Also somewhat lost in the commotion was Yearwood's own honorable half-decade-plus of hits, so many that some of her best (like a masterful version of Melissa Etheridge's "You Can Sleep While I Drive") didn't make it to this roundup of singles. That's OK; there'll be another. And for now, Songbook honorably recapitulates the career so far of one of current country's most-reliables. --Byline

I'm just getting into country music and I really like this CD. Her voice is pleasant and melodic. Some of the songs are sad, well, melancholy really, but that's how country is sometimes. I really like this album.

Wonderful album and singer. I'm a big Trisha Yearwood fan. Love The Song Remembers When and She's In Love With the Boy.
A brilliant collection

"Trisha Yearwood, at her best, is the finest of all contemporary country singers. This compilation contains many of the songs that established her as a major star, beginning with She's in love the boy - a song that enabled Trisha to become one of the few ladies in the history of country music to top the American country chart with their first single.Trisha's other country number one hits featured here include Thinking about you and An American girl (X's and O's). Many of the other songs were country top ten hits for Trisha. How do I live was a huge country hit for Trisha, but it was LeAnn Rimes who had the American pop hit (she also had a big UK pop hit with the song) - but Trisha's version was also a big hit in some other countries around the world, as well as being a minor UK hit. I love both versions of the song but I slightly prefer Trisha's version to LeAnn's. Really, there's not much to choose between them.One of my particular favorites is The song remembers when - about how you remember particular events in your life when you hear a particular song. There are many other fine songs including Wrong side of Memphis, Walkaway Joe, The woman before me and a duet with Garth Brooks (In another's eyes).This American edition contains only 12 tracks. The European edition (which I have) contains five bonus tracks while the Australian edition contains those five plus a duet with Australia's own Lee Kernaghan. For most American customers the extra tracks are probably not worth the import price but Trisha's diehard fans may wish to check my review of the import version before buying this."

"I have always been intiruged by Trisha Yearwood after seeing her sing ''Everybody Knows'' on Ellen a few years bak and enjoy watching her sing each time I watch that episode. I becale affixed after seeing her support Garth Brooks in Ireland a few years bak. I then decided to buy this cd and ''Everybody Knows'' (as it isn't on this cd), but in the words of Janice from ''Friends'', 'Oh my Gawwwwd!', what a revelation this is. Far from being a Country Music connoisseur or an avid fan, I just knew from the delivery of songs such as Like We Never Had a Broken Heart and Down on My Knees, I was listening to a hidden revelation (certainly here in Ireland anyway). Personal favourites are Like We Never Had A broken Heart, The Song Remembers When and Wrong Side of Mmephis. All these songs carry beautiful and evocative lyrics and touch upon everyday subjects like doing grocery shopping or parents being over protective of their offspring, but done so in a charming and fun stlye, tat simply makes this release a must for any self-repecting music collection, and one which warms me every time I listen to it (especially driving home late at night). To continue with the Trisha/Leann brouhaha, there is no comparison. While Leann's delivery is tone perfect and enjoyable, it lacks the emotional depth and range that Trisha's brings - she ''lives'' the song, and does so with tremendous spirit. This is of course a subjective view, but one which I think few would disagree with, making the album an additional must"
