Trisha Yearwood Says She Went With Her Instincts When Recording Sinatra Tribute Album With 55-Piece Orchestra

On Dec. 20, Trisha Yearwood released her first full-length studio album in more than 10 years with Let’s Be Frank, a collection of tune made famous by Frank Sinatra.

Trisha recorded 11 Sinatra’s tracks live with a 55 piece orchestra at the iconic Capitol Records building in Hollywood using Sinatra’s microphone and sitting on the same stool where he sat while recording the originals.

With a recording career that spanned more than 50 years—and 59 albums—Sinatra’s catalog of work is formidable, but, as Trisha says, she went with her instincts when creating her collection.

“I went through and kind of highlighted classic Frank songs that you have to do—and then my favorite songs that I have to do,” says Trisha. “And I remember the first sit-down meeting with [producer] Don Was, and he said, ‘Ok, right now, just write down 12 songs. If you had to pick 12, what would they be?’ And, honestly, this album turned out to be 11 of the 12! And the twelfth song ended up being an original song [“For the Last Time”] that I wrote with Garth, which I never intended to be on the record. It just kind of found its way because it seemed to fit.”

Let’s Be Frank is available via Williams-Sonoma now. It will be available everywhere on Feb. 14.
