Hunter Hayes may be known for his crooning and his ability to make tweens swoon, but he will now be fighting childhood hunger.
Ending child hunger starts one meal at a time. Singer Hunter Hayes has announced his partnership with ConAgra and Proctor &Gamble’s “Child Hunger Ends Here” program, which aims to deliver seven million meals to children in need in 2014. More than one in five children in America, or 16 million young people nationwide do not know where their next meal comes from, according to ConAgra.
"My new single 'Invisible' speaks to anyone who has ever felt outcast, alone, or invisible, including children who suffer from food insecurity,” said Hayes in a press release. “Hungry kids are in our schools, our neighborhoods and even right next door."
Each download of Hunter Hayes’ new single from iTunes will result in one meal donated to Feeding America, and the same donation will be made for every purchase of a ConAgra or P&G product like Chef Boyardee, Hunt’s and Healthy Choice (just look for the red pushpin on the product, ConAgra representatives explained). Up to 10 local food banks with the highest number of zip codes entered within their service area will receive the monetary equivalent of a 100,000-meal donation, which comes out to $11,111.
65 Names That Mean Hunter Or Huntress For Your Fearless Baby
Instinct, planning, precision, and attack! It takes a lot to hunt, whether it is humans hunting for fun or food, or animals hunting their prey. The hunting locations fill us with all kinds of emotions with their rustic beauty, flora, and fauna. While hunting as a recreational sport is debatable, hunting by animals is crucial for nature to maintain a balance and ensure that the wildlife populations are sustained from one generation to the next.
Hunting is so incredible that it inspires a plethora of baby names as well. Baby names inspired by hunting are cuddly, cute, and rugged, all at the same time. So, if you want your child’s name to reflect your love for hunting, check out MomJunction’s list of 65 baby names that mean hunter or huntress.
Who goes hungry?
Hunger can affect people from all walks of life. Many Americans are one job loss or medical crisis away from food insecurity – but some people, including children and seniors, may be at greater risk of hunger than others. Get the facts.
To achieve our vision of a hunger-free America, we must address the root causes of hunger and deepen our understanding of structural and systemic inequities that disproportionately impact marginalized communities and people in need of assistance.

Annika Kovar, Rising College Sophomore / Frazee, MN
Annika Kovar educates children across the U.S. about nutrition and healthy eating. In 2016, she founded Little Sprouts Garden Gang, an organization partnering with childcare facilities in all 50 states to provide programming about the importance of vegetables and gardening to teach healthy eating habits at an early age.
This is a hands-on program where children play in the dirt planting vegetable seeds and actively engage in lessons about gardening and eating healthy food. In nearly five years, Little Sprouts Garden Gang is reaching nearly 200 childcare facilities across the U.S. and. has coordinated food drives that raised between 400 to 700 pounds of food each year for a local food pantry. This program is complemented by Annika&rsquos very own published children&rsquos book called &ldquoCome and Plant a Garden with Me!&rdquo The Little Sprouts Garden Gang is creating a ripple effect that will allow the 2,500 children that Annika has reached to teach others about gardening and helpful ways to prevent hunger in the future.
Annika plans to utilize the Stephen J. Brady Stop Hunger $5,000 grant award to create a community apple orchard, as well as contribute funds to their local community garden Perham Community Food Shelf in Minnesota.
Caleb Oh, Rising High School Sophomore / Edgewater, MD
Caleb Oh founded Kids Changemakers after being told he was too young to volunteer at a local soup kitchen. His organization collaborates with non-profit organizations to provide kids with volunteer opportunities to help support food insecure individuals, the homeless, military families, victims of natural disasters, and children in the foster care system.
When Caleb was six years old, he learned that he was too young to serve as a hunger-fighting volunteer in places like soup kitchens and food pantries. This motivated him to create Kid Changemakers and as a result, provisions for more than 2,000 lunches have been provided to help those that are homeless, more than 200 lunch accounts with unpaid balances have been paid, and more than 1,000 women and children in shelters have been supported with food donations.
Kid Changemakers has also collected food donations for victims of natural disasters, provided nearly $75,000 worth of coupons to military families to help with food supplies and collected over $60,000 of in-kind donations, grants and cash over the past eight years. Caleb attributes these successes to the many partnerships with schools, businesses, churches and local non-profits. Most recently, Kids Changemakers collaborated with the Blue Ribbon Project to run &ldquoAging Up Not Out&rdquo workshops. These workshops teach foster teens valuable life skills so that when they age out of the foster care system they can support themselves.
Caleb intends to utilize the Stephen J. Brady Stop Hunger $5,000 grant award to Kids Changemakers to start a food pantry at a local university.
Carson Pazdan, Rising High School Junior / Barrington, IL
Carson Pazdan began his charitable efforts by creating the Kids Feeding Kids Cookbook featuring recipes from well-known celebrities to raise money for his local food bank. The project grew into a non-profit organization of elementary age children dedicated to fighting hunger through volunteer activities and youth-lead fundraisers to spur lifelong philanthropic advocates.
Carson Pazdan&rsquos interest in food and hunger began when he was only five years old. After a conversation about hunger with his mom, he decided to create Kids Feeding Kids and sell a cookbook that would benefit people dealing with hunger. This cookbook contains 800 recipes, some of which were contributed by celebrities Oprah Winfrey, Maria Shriver, Chris O&rsquoDonnell and Sean Hayes. Over 2,000 cookbooks were sold and raised $40,000 to help provide hunger relief to local community members.
Now, 10 years later, Carson has raised over $160,000, collected thousands of pounds of food and donated $840,000 worth of groceries to the Northern Illinois Food Bank. Carson also organizes two annual food drives where he engages youth to help volunteer. At the kickoff of the food drives, Carson speaks with elementary school children and educates them about the food insecurity. His passion to fight hunger has inspired nearly 1,000 participants to support his annual food drives.
Carson plans to utilize the Stephen J. Brady Stop Hunger $5,000 grant award to purchase much needed equipment, such as refrigeration and freezers, for Kids Feeding Kids Club.
William Winslow, Rising High School Freshman / Raleigh, NC
William Winslow leads the Backpack Buddies initiatives in his community to provide direct food aid to those who need it most. William leads young people in annual food drives, community garden builds, education initiatives to help develop sustainable hunger relief programs, and advocacy efforts for local and national policy changes to fight food insecurity.
He developed an interest in helping end hunger when his guidance counselor shared that some of his classmates did not have enough food to eat on weekends. This knowledge sparked William to implement a series of anti-hunger activities, including food drives. His first food drive was a request for food donations versus birthday gifts for his seventh birthday. His most recent food drive collected nearly 12,000 pounds of food and $10,000. Over the past seven years he collected over 55,000 pounds of food and over $63,000 to support his local food pantry.
In addition to food drives, William implemented Little Free Pantries in his community. These pantries are located near public bus stops and provide access to non-perishable food supplies for both children and adults. In addition to food drives and the food pantries, William also helped to implement school gardens, including a hydroponic garden at an elementary school where they harvested lettuce for the community. When he is not actively implementing a food drive or garden, William is teaching others about hunger. He speaks with civic groups, youth groups, scouts, churches and school-age children about hunger.
William plans to utilize the Stephen J. Brady Stop Hunger $5,000 grant award to build and stock more little free pantries across North Carolina through the Food Drive Kids organization.
Noah Zimmer, Rising College Junior / Granger, IN
Noah Zimmer is the co-founder of Meat Hunger, a youth-led livestock auction buyer&rsquos group that purchases the livestock projects of his fellow 4-H members. The group then works with local organizations to process and distribute the meat bought from the auctions, as a source of protein, for students and families participating in local backpack programs.
As a resident of Granger, IN, Noah is aware of the hunger that exists within St. Joseph County. Noah recalls one evening when his dad shared the statistic that, one in four children go without food every day in St. Joseph County. He clearly remembers hearing this statement from his dad while looking at the porkchop on his full plate. At that moment, his passion to help end hunger was sparked. After researching the problem, he learned that protein is the most lacking nutrient for those struggling with hunger. As a result, he and his sister founded Meat Hunger.
One of the goals of Meat Hunger was to involve the 4-H community because he knew they needed help now and in the future through a succession planHe created a peer-to-peer mentorship program to develop Meat Hunger leaders of the future and presented to over 500 4-H community members.. Within two years, Meat Hunger, with the support of 4-H leaders, generated an economic impact that exceeded $52,800 and provided 72,000 total servings of local 4-H raised meat to hungry people of St. Joseph County. They also helped implement the non-perishable portion of the food drive, including the &ldquoBattle of the Barns,&rdquo which involved eight barns competing against each other to collect the most food items and netted 3,400 pounds of food in the first year.
Noah intends to utilize the Stephen J. Brady Stop Hunger $5,000 grant award to invest a portion of the money directly into Meat Hunger by soliciting matching donations of new donors. With the remaining amount, he plans to offer scholarships to 4-H youth members who exhibit outstanding leadership and initiative towards addressing the hunger problem in St. Joseph County.

Hunter Biden writing sequel to 'Beautiful Things' despite poor sales
Hunter Biden’s emails and texts show not just a politician’s troubled son angling for lucrative overseas business deals — they also reveal a concerned father, a fun-loving friend and a man tortured by the deaths that have devastated his family.
In a text-message exchange from 2018, eldest daughter Naomi — named after Biden’s late sister, who was killed with their mother, Neilia, in a 1972 car crash — pleaded with her dad for emergency cash.
“Can you put 150 in my account it was just declined for lyft to airport sorry sorry sorry sorry,” the now-26-year-old Columbia Law student asked.
“Yes I can but Naomi you really have to start to realize that once you are out of school the chances of you living like your father is a billionaire when he’s really given all his money away- is going to be a bit of a shock,” Hunter answered.
“I know I promise ill be much better this year. Promise,” Naomi wrote back.
Naomi didn’t return a request for comment, but neither Hunter Biden’s lawyer nor Joe Biden’s campaign have disputed the validity of the trove of data that The Post obtained after being extracted from a MacBook Pro laptop. The owner of a Delaware computer repair shop said the device was dropped off in April 2019 but never retrieved.
A computer camera roll of nearly 25,000 images is loaded with sexually explicit selfies and porn (which The Post is not publishing), but also has snapshots from Biden’s childhood and vacations.
And while some of the more than 11,550 emails involve Biden’s former job on the board of the Ukrainian energy company Burisma and his dealings with the now-bankrupt CEFC China Energy Co., most of his messages are innocuous and personal in nature.
“We really felt that our consultant knew our organization and what we were looking for. We were ecstatic with the choice. Very happy with The Moran Company. Highly recommend them.”

Hunter was born in Conyers, Georgia, the daughter of Opal Marguerite (née Catledge), a housewife, and Charles Edwin Hunter, a farmer and sporting-goods manufacturer's representative.  Hunter is unable to hear with her left ear due to a childhood case of the mumps. The condition sometimes leads to complications at work. Some scenes have to be altered from the script for her to use her right ear.  She is irreligious.  She began acting at Rockdale County High School in the early 1970s, performing in Oklahoma, Man of La Mancha, and Fiddler on the Roof.  Hunter earned a degree in drama from Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, and for a while performed in the theatre scene there, playing ingenue roles at City Theatre, then named the City Players. 
Hunter moved to New York City and roomed with fellow actress Frances McDormand. Hunter in 2008, living in the Bronx "at the end of the D [subway] train, just off 205th Street, on Bainbridge Avenue and Hull Avenue."  A chance encounter with playwright Beth Henley, when the two were trapped alone in an elevator, led to Hunter's being cast in Henley's plays Crimes of the Heart (succeeding Mary Beth Hurt on Broadway), and Off-Broadway's The Miss Firecracker Contest. "It was like the beginning of 1982. It was on 49th Street between Broadway and Eighth [Avenue] . on the south side of the street," Hunter recalled in an interview. "[We were trapped] 10 minutes not long. We actually had a nice conversation. It was just the two of us." 
Hunter made her film debut in the 1981 slasher movie The Burning.  After moving to Los Angeles in 1982, Hunter appeared in TV movies before being cast in a supporting role in 1984's Swing Shift. That year, she had her first collaboration with the writing-directing-producing team of brothers Ethan Coen and Joel Coen, in Blood Simple, making an uncredited appearance as a voice on an answering-machine recording. More film and television work followed until 1987, when she earned a starring role in the Coens' Raising Arizona and was nominated for an Academy Award for her performance in Broadcast News, after which Hunter became a critically acclaimed star.
Hunter went on to the screen adaptation of Henley's Miss Firecracker Steven Spielberg's Always, a romantic drama with Richard Dreyfuss and the made-for-TV 1989 docudrama about the Supreme Court case Roe v. Wade. Following her second collaboration with Dreyfuss, in Once Around, Hunter garnered critical attention for her work in two 1993 films, resulting in her being nominated for two Academy Awards the same year: Hunter's performance in The Firm won her a nomination as Best Supporting Actress, while her portrayal of a mute Scottish woman entangled in an adulterous affair with Harvey Keitel in Jane Campion's The Piano won her the Best Actress award. Hunter went on to star in the comedy-drama Home for the Holidays and the thriller Copycat, both in 1995. Hunter appeared in David Cronenberg's Crash and as a sardonic angel in A Life Less Ordinary. The following year, Hunter played a recently divorced New Yorker in Richard LaGravenese's Living Out Loud starring alongside Danny DeVito, Queen Latifah, and Martin Donovan.
Hunter rounded out the 1990s with a minor role in the independent drama Jesus' Son and as a housekeeper torn between a grieving widower and his son in Kiefer Sutherland's drama Woman Wanted. Following a supporting role in the Coens' O Brother, Where Art Thou?, Hunter took top billing in the same year's television movie Harlan County War, an account of labor struggles among Kentucky coal-mine workers. Hunter would continue her small screen streak with a role in When Billie Beat Bobby, playing tennis pro Billie Jean King in the fact-based story of King's famed exhibition match with Bobby Riggs and as narrator of Eco Challenge New Zealand before returning to film work with a minor role in the 2002 drama Moonlight Mile. The following year found Hunter in the redemption drama Levity.
In 2003, Hunter had the role of a mother named Melanie Freeland, whose daughter is troubled and going through the perils of being a teenager in the film Thirteen. The film was critically acclaimed along with Hunter and her co-stars and earned her nominations for the Academy Award and Golden Globe Award for Best Supporting Actress. In 2004, Hunter starred alongside Brittany Murphy in the romantic satire Little Black Book, and provided the voice for Helen Parr (also known as Elastigirl) in the acclaimed computer-animated superhero film, The Incredibles. She reprised the role in the Disney Infinity video game series, and in the film's sequel Incredibles 2 in 2018.
In 2005, Hunter starred alongside Robin Williams in the black comedy-drama The Big White. Hunter became an executive producer, and helped develop a starring vehicle for herself with the TNT cable-network drama Saving Grace, which premiered in July 2007. For her acting, she received a Golden Globe Award nomination, two Screen Actors Guild Award nominations, and an Emmy Award nomination. On May 30, 2008, Hunter received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. In 2009, she was awarded the Women in Film Lucy Award.  In 2016, Hunter played Senator Finch in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.   Hunter's likeness was used to portray Senator Finch in the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice tie-in prequel comics, released by Dr. Pepper on February 3, 2016. Hunter stars opposite Ted Danson in the 2021 NBC comedy Mr. Mayor.
Hunter was married to Janusz Kamiński, cinematographer of Schindler's List and Saving Private Ryan  from 1995 until 2001. She has been in a relationship with British actor Gordon MacDonald since 2001. The couple met in San Jose Repertory Theatre's production of playwright Marina Carr's By the Bog of Cats, in which she played a woman abandoned by her lover of 14 years, played by MacDonald.  In January 2006, Hunter gave birth to the couple's twin boys  Claude and Press.

In 1999, Hunter received the Golden Plate Award of the American Academy of Achievement.  In 2016, Hunter was awarded an Honorary Doctorate degree by her alma mater, Carnegie Mellon University. 
Yearwood was born in Monticello, Georgia, the daughter of schoolteacher Gwendolyn Yearwood and local banker Jack Howard Yearwood.  From an early age, she was passionate about music and participated in various music events held by her school and community. This included talent shows, church events, and musicals. After graduating high school, Yearwood studied for two years at Young Harris College, receiving an associate degree in business. She then attended the University of Georgia for one semester before dropping out.  Yearwood then moved to Nashville, Tennessee, in 1985, enrolling in Belmont College and pursued a music business degree.  Trisha Yearwood's ancestors came to North America from England during the colonial era. 
Yearwood gained an internship with MTM Records and was eventually hired as a full-time employee. With the help of the record label's resources, she recorded a series of demo tapes and also sang background vocals for new artists.  One of the artists she recorded with was Garth Brooks. Developing a friendship, Brooks promised to help Yearwood sign a recording contract if his career succeeded. Brooks brought her to his producer, Allen Reynolds, who then brought her to the attention of producer Garth Fundis. Fundis and Yearwood began collaborating and eventually crafted a demo recording tape. In 1990, she sang background vocals on Brooks' second album, No Fences, and performed live at a label showcase. MCA Records producer Tony Brown heard her performance and was impressed. Brown helped her sign a recording contract with the label.  After signing with the label, she served as the opening act on Brooks' 1991 nationwide tour. 
1991: Breakthrough Edit
Yearwood's self-titled debut album was released in 1991. Its lead single "She's in Love with the Boy" peaked at number 1 on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart, bringing her major success.  Three other singles from the album reached the top ten on the country chart — "Like We Never Had a Broken Heart", "The Woman Before Me", and "That's What I Like About You". Her debut album eventually sold one million copies and was certified double-platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) for shipments of two million copies. Yearwood also became the first female country artist to sell a million copies of her debut album.  AllMusic reviewed the album and called the effort "a very classy debut that stands the test of time", giving it four and a half out of five stars.  Additionally, Entertainment Weekly, said that Yearwood's voice "demonstrates technical and emotional authority at every turn."  Yearwood's success garnered her a series of major music awards. In 1991, she was named Top New Female Vocalist by the Academy of Country Music and was voted Favorite New Country Artist by the American Music Awards in 1992. 
With success, Yearwood began engaging in more opportunities. Parting ways with her previous management firm, she began working under the supervision of Ken Kragen, who oversaw Kenny Rogers and Travis Tritt.  She also became the spokesperson for the WildHeart fragrance by Revlon. In a 2010 interview with Good Housekeeping, Yearwood explained that while filming the fragrance's commercial, she was asked to embrace with a male model. She declined to do so and would not continue production until her manager arrived to support her decision. The commercial was eventually filmed and shown on major television networks. 
1992–1996: Career diversification Edit
In 1992, Yearwood released her second studio album, Hearts in Armor.  With her second album, Yearwood chose songs that came from emotional conflicts following the divorce from first husband, Chris Latham. The album was a departure from her previous material, containing ballads and collaborations with Don Henley, Emmylou Harris, and Raul Malo. Music critics praised the album. Allmusic called the album "stunning" and "one of the best heartbreak records country music delivered in the '80s and '90s."  About.com gave it five stars and called Hearts in Armor "possibly Trisha's best album ever".  The album's first two singles reached the top ten of the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart in 1992 — "Wrong Side of Memphis" and "Walkaway Joe", the latter featuring Henley on backing vocals.  The remaining singles ("You Say You Will" and "Down on My Knees") peaked within the top twenty of the country songs chart. Hearts in Armor would later certify platinum in sales from the RIAA. 
— Yearwood on her musical direction in the 1990s 
Yearwood released her third album in 1993 entitled The Song Remembers When. The title track reached number two on the Billboard country chart that year.  The record was recorded in a similar musical style to Hearts in Armor, differing with more contemporary arrangements. The album also included collaborations with other artists such as Rodney Crowell and Willie Nelson.  The album was later accompanied by a cable television special in 1993, where the title track's music video derived from.  Yearwood followed the studio album with her first Holiday compilation in 1994 titled The Sweetest Gift. It included cover versions of holiday standards, such as "Away in a Manger", "Let it Snow! Let it Snow! Let it Snow!", and "The Christmas Song". 
In February 1995, Yearwood released her fourth studio album, Thinkin' About You, which geared more towards adult contemporary styles.  The album was given a positive review by Rolling Stone which compared Thinkin' About You to many of Linda Ronstadt's albums in the 1970s. The disc included a version of Melissa Etheridge's "You Can Sleep While I Drive" and Tammy Wynette's "'Til I Get It Right".  Thinkin' About You's first two singles reached number 1 on the Billboard country chart: "XXX's and OOO's (An American Girl)" and the title track. Its third single, "I Wanna Go Too Far" reached the top ten after its release at the end of 1995.  Like its predecessors, Thinkin' About You eventually sold one million copies in the United States and was certified platinum from the RIAA.  At the 1995 Grammy Awards, Yearwood's duet with Aaron Neville titled "I Fall to Pieces" (a cover of the 1961 song by Patsy Cline) won in the category of Best Country Collaboration with Vocals. The award became Yearwood's first accolade from the Grammys. 
In August 1996, she released her fifth studio album, Everybody Knows, which had similarities to her previous album. The record mostly contained ballads and the songs featured larger melodies. Everybody Knows received mixed reviews by critics. AllMusic gave the album three out of five stars, calling the songs "a little uneven".  However, Entertainment Weekly praised the album, calling the title track an "emotional release of a pounding piano".  Everybody Knows spawned the "Believe Me Baby (I Lied)", which became Yearwood's fourth number-one single on the Billboard country chart. The title track was released as the second single and peaked within the top five in 1996.  During this period, Yearwood performed at the closing ceremony of the 1996 Summer Olympics, which were held in Atlanta, Georgia. 
1997–2001: Crossover success Edit
Yearwood released her first greatest hits compilation in August 1997, (Songbook) A Collection of Hits. The album comprised her major hits up to that point. Songbook was praised by most music critics, including AllMusic who called it "a near-definitive collection".  The compilation became her first album to peak at number 1 on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart. It also reached the Top 10 of the Billboard 200, peaking at number 4. Songbook included three new tracks that were eventually released as singles. "How Do I Live" was the first single issued and was included in the 1997 film Con Air. The song was also nominated for Best Song at the Academy Awards.  "How Do I Live" was originally recorded by LeAnn Rimes for the film. Rimes's version became a major hit on the Billboard Hot 100, peaking at number two, while Yearwood's version peaked at number two on the Billboard country chart. The song also reached number 23 on the Billboard Hot 100.  The album's remaining singles also became major hits on the Billboard Country Chart. "In Another's Eyes" (a duet with Garth Brooks) peaked at number 2 on the country chart and the third single, "Perfect Love" reached number one in early 1998. Additionally, Yearwood won a series of accolades. This included accolades from the Grammy Awards, the Country Music Association Awards, and the Academy of Country Music.  Songbook would become Yearwood's highest selling album, selling four million copies in the United States, eventually being certified 4× Multi-Platinum from the RIAA. 
Yearwood issued first studio album two years later, Where Your Road Leads (1998). It was her first album produced by Tony Brown, with her five previous albums being produced by Garth Fundis. The singles, "There Goes My Baby", "Powerful Thing", and "I'll Still Love You More" became top ten hits on the Billboard country chart. The title track, was another collaboration with Garth Brooks and became a top twenty hit single.  The album gained mostly positive reviews. About.com reviewed the album and gave it four stars, calling it "one of her best albums".  It was also reviewed by Allmusic, which also gave the release four out of five stars.  During this time, Yearwood engaged in additional ventures. In the summer of 1998, she performed with singer Luciano Pavarotti to benefit Liberian children. In 1999, she was inducted as a member of the Grand Ole Opry by Porter Wagoner, performing a cover Patsy Cline's "Sweet Dreams (Of You)" the night of her induction. She is still a member to date. 
Following a second divorce, Yearwood released her seventh studio album in March 2000 titled Real Live Woman. In similarity to Hearts in Armor, the record reflected emotional conflicts following the separation.  The album contained twelve tracks and included covers of Bruce Springsteen's "Sad Eyes" and Linda Ronstadt's "Try Me Again". It was given critical acclaim from AllMusic, quoting Real Live Woman as a "measured, deliberate record in the best possible sense."  The album sold 500,000 copies in the United States and spawned two singles:  the title track and "Where Are You Now".
In 2001, Yearwood released her eighth studio record Inside Out. It was produced by Mark Wright.   The album included a collaboration from Don Henley on the title track, as well as Rosanne Cash and Vince Gill. AllMusic called the release "bound to inspire fans and fellow artists alike", calling Yearwood's voice "timeless".  Rolling Stone gave the album four out of five stars calling, "Love Alone" and "Melancholy Blue" the best songs on the record.  The album spawned the single "I Would've Loved You Anyway", which reached number 4 on the Billboard country chart. 
2002–2016: Jasper County, record label switch and new career directions Edit
Following her 2001 album, Yearwood spent time with family and eventually established a romantic relationship with Garth Brooks. In September 2005, she released her first album of new recordings in four years, Jasper County. The album reunited her with Fundis on production duties, and took its name from Jasper County, Georgia, the Georgia county in which she was raised. The album consisted of mostly upbeat Soul-styled songs, including "Sweet Love", and "Who Invented the Wheel". It received positive reviews by critics, including AllMusic writer Stephen Thomas Erlewine, who called it "an album that stretches further musically than most of her albums while being more cohesive than most of her records as well."  It received five stars from About.com, praising the songs "Georgia Rain", "Who Invented the Wheel", and "Standing Out in a Crowd".  The album became her third to reach number one on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart. It also peaked at number 4 on the Billboard 200, selling 117,000 copies within its first week. Its first week sales eclipsed those of Paul McCartney's Chaos and Creation in the Backyard, which was released within the same week.  The first single, "Georgia Rain", peaked at number 15 on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart, becoming her first major hit since 2002.  The second single, "Trying to Love You" was released to radio October 31, reaching number 52. Within a month of the album's release, Jasper County certified gold from the RIAA, becoming Yearwood's eleventh Gold certification of her career. 
In May 2007, Yearwood announced her departure from MCA Nashville Records and her signing with the independent label Big Machine Records. Yearwood and the label's CEO, Scott Borchetta met when she originally worked for MTM Records in the late 1980s. She then worked with Borchetta at MCA during the 1990s.  Following her separation, MCA released a Greatest Hits compilation, which included her major hits between 1991 and 2001. 
After signing with the label, Yearwood announced plans for the recording of her tenth studio album.  In November 2007, she released Heaven, Heartache, and the Power of Love. The album peaked at number ten on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart and reached number thirty on the Billboard 200.  The album received critical acclaim. AllMusic gave the project four and a half out of five stars, calling it their "album pick". Reviewer, Thom Jurek stated, "It's better than good, it's beyond expectation – and it was high after Jasper County – it's the best example of what a popular record – not just a country one – should aspire to be, period."  Slant Magazine also reviewed the record, giving it four and a half stars, calling it "a testament to the vitality, intelligence, and soulfulness of modern country's best music."  The title track was released as the first single in July 2007,  peaking at number 19 on the Hot Country Songs chart.  The second single, "This Is Me You're Talking To" was released in January 2008. The song received critical acclaim, notably from Engine 145, who called it "one of the best singles of the year". 
After beginning a successful Food Network cooking show and several cookbooks, Yearwood went into hiatus from her solo music career.  Although she did not focus on solo projects, she remained active in the music industry. From 2009 to 2014, Yearwood accompanied husband Garth Brooks in his concert residency called Garth at Wynn. The residence was located at the Encore Theatre in Las Vegas, Nevada. Yearwood performed songs as a guest artist in the show.  The Las Vegas production ran for three years, closing in 2014.  In 2014, Yearwood joined Brooks on his three-year world tour entitled The Garth Brooks World Tour.  During this same time, she briefly embarked on her own brief tour called "Just Because".  In August 2014, Yearwood briefly signed with RCA Records Nashville.  Her only album for the label was the 2014 studio album PrizeFighter: Hit After Hit. It contained 16 of her major hits re-recorded for the album and several new songs. The title track was released as the lead single and featured guest vocals from Kelly Clarkson.  The album debuted at number 7 on the Billboard country albums chart and the lead single peaked at number 42 on the Billboard country songs chart. 
In 2016, Yearwood appeared in the live television musical The Passion.   As a result, she was also featured on the event's soundtrack, performing new versions of several well-known songs including "Hands", "My Love Is Your Love", "You'll Never Walk Alone" and "Broken". "Broken" became Yearwood's first hit on the Christian charts, peaking at number 47 and also reaching number 17 on the Adult Contemporary charts.  In late 2016 she joined Garth Brooks on their first collaborative studio album titled Christmas Together. The album featured covers of classic holiday songs and an original track written by the pair called "What I'm Thankful for (The Thanksgiving Song)".  Following this, Yearwood was selected as one of 30 artists to perform on the song "Forever Country". The song was created to celebrate 50 years of the CMA Awards. 
2018–present: Return to music Edit
In late 2018 Yearwood announced the release of a new album consisting of songs previously recorded by Frank Sinatra. Titled Let's Be Frank, it was recorded live at the Capitol Records building and was backed by a full piece orchestra. Yearwood used Sinatra's original microphone during the recording process. It was released in December 2018, exclusively at Williams Sonoma stores, and worldwide on February 14, 2019.  The album peaked at number 2 on the Billboard Jazz Albums chart.  In his review, Kevin John Coyne of Country Universe praised the release, giving it four of five possible stars. In discussing the album, Coyne commented, "Let’s Be Frank is a delightful detour, and while it doesn’t curb the hunger for more country music from the greatest female artist of the greatest generation of female artists, it is chock full of reminders of how she earned that distinction in the first place."  Trisha Yearwood performed the Sinatra covers on March 7, 2020 with the Baton Rouge Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Timothy Muffitt. Yearwood was invited to perform with the BRSO as the 2020 selection of the "Pennington Great Performers" series.
In 2019, Yearwood announced plans for her twelfth studio album, Every Girl. Its lead single "Every Girl in This Town" was issued in June 2019.  The song debuted at number 21 on the Billboard Country Airplay chart, marking the highest chart debut of her career.  Every Girl was released in August 2019. It featured collaborations with Garth Brooks, Kelly Clarkson, and Don Henley.  The album peaked at number 5 on the Billboard Country Albums chart  and number 57 on the Billboard 200.  Every Girl received critical praise upon its release. Allmusic's Thom Jurek gave the album 4 of 5 stars, calling it "more commanding and more emotionally resonant than in years past."  Roughstock's Matt Bjorke commented, "Trisha Yearwood has chosen fourteen diverse songs which showcase her pristine voice, an instrument as strong today as it has ever been, if not more powerful."  Yearwood embarked on her first solo tour in 6 years to support the album, which launched in October 2019. 
In April 2008, Yearwood released her first cookbook co-written with her mother Gwen and sister Beth Georgia Cooking in an Oklahoma Kitchen. The cookbook included other recipes passed down from her family and liner notes describing each recipe. In total, 120 recipes were included. The book contained recipes for such foods as fried chicken, ribs, meatloaf, and cheesecake. Garth Brooks wrote the book's foreword, stating how he was always fond of her cooking style.  Georgia Cooking reached number 1 on the New York Times Best Seller list.  Yearwood then stated plans to publish a second cookbook. 
On April 6, 2010, she collaborated again with her mother and sister to release Home Cooking with Trisha Yearwood. The book contained recipes passed down through her mother, aunts, cousins and longtime friends. Yearwood stated that she dedicated many of the cookbook's recipes to relatives, such as Brooks, who also provided the foreword.  Home Cooking would also reach number 1 on the New York Times Best Seller list.  Yearwood's cookbook was the cover article for the April 2010 issue of Redbook Magazine, where she explained that many of the recipes featured in the cookbook were "some of the best memories of her childhood".  Later that year, the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine included Home Cooking with Trisha Yearwood on their list of "The Five Worst Cookbooks of 2010", noting its recipes are "loaded with fat and cholesterol", specifically citing one called "Garth's Breakfast Bowl" which "includes eight large eggs, a pound each of bacon and sausage, cheese tortellini, cheddar cheese, tater tots, and B.O.B (Bowl Of Butter)."  In 2015, Yearwood released her third cooking writing endeavor called Trisha's Table. Garth Brooks wrote the book's foreword and it was another writing collaboration with her sister. 
In 2012, Yearwood announced plans to film a cooking show. Trisha's Southern Kitchen premiered on the Food Network on April 14, 2012. The original six episodes were filmed in Nashville, Tennessee.  The show received a positive response from viewers. According to Food Network's senior vice president, viewers enjoyed seeing "different sides" of Yearwood: "Our viewers loved seeing a different side of Trisha. Her impressive cooking skills and family recipes, coupled with her natural southern charm, really resonated with our audience. We’re thrilled Trisha will be returning for a second season with more delicious dishes and family traditions."  In 2013, Trisha's Southern Kitchen won an Emmy award for "Outstanding Culinary Program". The show has since been nominated for additional Emmy accolades.  In a 2017 interview, Yearwood stated that she would like to continue hosting the program for "as long as she can." 
Film and television Edit
In 1997, Yearwood began playing a recurring role on the CBS military drama JAG, where she played Lieutenant Commander Teresa Coulter, a Navy coroner and forensic specialist, who develops feelings for one of the main characters. She appeared on the show at various times until 2002.  In the 1999 film Stuart Little, Yearwood performed the song "You're Where I Belong", written by Diane Warren and produced by Keith Thomas. In addition, Yearwood also guest-starred in the television series Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman in 1994 as a choir director. Yearwood has also stated she is interested in performing in a Broadway musical, but not "anytime soon".  She appeared in an episode of TLC's Who Do You Think You Are? on September 3, 2013. 
In March 2016, Yearwood appeared as Mary in the live television musical The Passion based on the Dutch franchise of the same name. The show is a contemporary retelling of the Passion of Jesus Christ set to popular music with a mixture of live and pre-recorded segments. The event was broadcast live on Fox. The show received mixed reviews. In one interview by Robert Bianco of USA Today, "Yearwood's Mary may have been singing about Jesus, but she never interacted with him. While he was mostly seen in segments shot around the city, she sang to the crowd gathered in front of that big white stage, belting out You'll Never Walk Alone to no one in particular." A review by Entertainment Weekly called Yearwood's performance of the songs she performed "expressive", but lacking the live elements as it was filmed through pre-recorded scenes.    In 2019, Yearwood hosted the tenth annual CMA Country Christmas. The special was taped in September 2019 and featured performances by various artists including Tori Kelly, CeCe Winans and Brett Young. 
Her musical tastes originated from classic artists her parents listened to. This included Elvis Presley, Patsy Cline, Loretta Lynn, and Tammy Wynette.  However, as Yearwood developed into her teenage years, she developed a liking for country rock artists such as Allman Brothers and James Taylor.  She also cited the Eagles and Gordon Lightfoot as influences. 
According to Yearwood, her primary musical influence is Linda Ronstadt.  She discovered her music after her parents bought her Ronstadt's studio album Simple Dreams. Yearwood commented to the Wall Street Journal that while Ronstadt's music was considered pop, her phrasing and emotional style appeared country.  Music critics and writers have drawn similarities between Ronstadt and Yearwood's voice. In an interview for Ronstadt's album Feels Like Home, Peter Galvin of Rolling Stone commented, "Listening to Yearwood’s new album, Thinkin’ About You, you would sometimes swear you were hearing Ronstadt circa 1976. Yearwood's voice is thinner and more pliable than Ronstadt's, but both resort to a hearty squawk when passion takes them over, and both possess low honey tones."  She also reported to be influenced by Emmylou Harris. 
Yearwood's musical style has been considered "country pop"  and "adult contemporary".  Additionally, her artistic choices have been considered unique from writers because of song choice and quality. When ranking her "top 10" songs, staff from The Boot magazine explained her musical quality, "Yearwood has carved out a very successful and unique niche for herself by finding some of the highest-quality songs in the genre, then recording them in arrangements that bring them to life in a way that is sonically different from any other artist in the commercial country marketplace."  Laura McClellan of Taste of Country explained that it is Yearwood's diverse musical styles that make her music quality and career successful. McClellan also noted, "Her songs have shaped country music — particularly for female artists — for decades." 
Yearwood has participated in various philanthropic events. She recorded a version of "My Favorite Things" for the Sears "Heroes at Home" program in 2008. The song was available for download via the Sears website. The project supported the families of service men and women during the Christmas holiday season.  Yearwood has been an active member of the charity home building group Habitat for Humanity. Yearwood first joined with husband Garth Brooks in 2006. They assisted in the Hurricane Katrina disaster relief by building flood walls in New Orleans and protective structures in Mississippi. Between May 2 to 10, 2009, Yearwood participated in "National Women Build Week" near her home in Tulsa, Oklahoma. The project saw two hundred crews of women learn to build houses in Atlanta, Georgia and Oklahoma. For the project, Yearwood learned to construct and build simple and affordable houses for Habitat for Humanity construction sites nationwide. On Mother's Day, Yearwood, her sister, mother and niece joined the project as well.  Many of these Habitat for Humanity projects have been collaborations with former president Jimmy Carter and his wife Rosalynn Carter. 
During the COVID-19 pandemic, Yearwood and her husband Garth Brooks performed an informal concert broadcast on Facebook Live. The website crashed multiple times as an estimated 5.2 million streamed the broadcast. As a result of this, Brooks and Yearwood performed a concert in the same format the following week, broadcast live on CBS, along with a donation of $1 million to relief efforts.  The CBS special scored an estimated 5.6 million viewers. 
Yearwood married her first husband, Chris Latham, in 1987. The pair divorced in 1991. In 1994, she married Bobby Reynolds, a bassist for The Mavericks. During their marriage, the couple lived in a log cabin-styled home in Hendersonville, Tennessee.  The pair divorced in 1999 after five years of marriage.  Yearwood commented that the separation was "difficult" in a 1999 interview with Country Weekly, "Since I do hang on to the past with my fingernails, divorce was difficult. It’s a serious decision involving someone you’re tied to emotionally, so it’s hard to move on. And it’s easy to drag things out so you don’t have to face people talking about you." 
Yearwood and Garth Brooks had been friends and musical partners before romantically seeing each other. According to Brooks, his first encounter with Yearwood felt like "that feeling when you just meet your wife". During this period, Yearwood and Brooks were both married to other people.  For these reasons, they remained friends during the first half of their careers.  Following Brooks's divorce and Yearwood's second divorce, the two began dating around 2002. They became engaged in 2005 when Brooks proposed to Yearwood onstage amidst a crowd of 7,000 in Bakersfield, California.  The pair married on December 13, 2005.  The wedding took place at the couple's home in Owasso, Oklahoma. Brooks's three children were also part of the wedding ceremony. 
According to Yearwood, the pair made a commitment not to spend time apart. It is estimated by Yearwood that the couple spends about five days away from each other per year. In an interview with People Magazine she explained this further, "We really have made a conscious effort since getting married to not be apart, so we’ve toured together. If I’m doing something, he’ll be with me, even if you don’t see him, he’ll be in the hotel or around. And we’re not always together, but we’ve been married before, and we decided we don’t want to be apart. So [we said] let’s make an effort to make sure that’s our priority and we’ve been able to do it."  She became a stepmother to Brooks's three children following their marriage. In a 2017 interview, Yearwood explained her new role, "I had no idea what I was doing. I have to say that now as these girls have grown—they’re adults now on their own—it’s been a part of my life that I would have never would have even known to dream about and it’s been so rewarding to get to be a part of this family." 
In February 2021, Yearwood's publicity team announced that she had tested positive for COVID-19. According to Brooks, the couple had been home quarantining after a member of their staff had tested positive for the illness. Brooks also explained that Yearwood is "under the greatest care" and is "doing okay so far."  She made a full recovery from the virus a month later.

Hunter Hayes Partners With Non-Profits to End Child Hunger - Recipes
The National Alliance for Nutrition and Activity (NANA) advocates national policies and programs to promote healthy eating and physical activity to help reduce the illnesses, diseases, disabilities, premature deaths, and costs associated with diet and inactivity. Our efforts include advocating for strong public policy and program funding, supporting effective education programs, and promoting environmental approaches to help the public eat better and be more active.
NANA promotes, within the legislative and executive branches of government, a better understanding of the importance of healthy eating, physical activity, and obesity control to the nation's health and health-care costs. In addition, NANA aims to cultivate champions for nutrition, physical activity, and obesity prevention in Congress and federal agencies.
After a decade of national, state, and local advocacy to improve the nutritional quality of school foods, the NANA coalition led the successful effort to pass the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act, a landmark law to improve and reauthorize child nutrition programs. The law (enacted 12/13/10) also includes a provision to get unhealthy foods and beverages out of school vending machines, a la carte lines and other school venues. This historic legislation provides more than 31 million American children with greater access to healthy school food.
NANA has led the effort to strengthen resources for nutrition and physical activity promotion at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). As a result of our efforts, CDC's Division of Nutrition, Physical Activity and Obesity's funding has increased from $2 million per year in FY 1998 to $55 million per year in FY 2018.
