Trisha Yearwood is welcoming an all-female lineup of opening acts on her "Every Grl On Tour." This is her first solo tour in five years.

Caylee Hammack, Caroline Jones, Kim Richey and Rachel Wammack will all perform with Trisha on select dates. 

This tour is a very special one, because I haven’t done a proper U.S. run in five years. I know, I know, it was long overdue! Because it’s such an important moment for me, I wanted to showcase and support a really diverse and dynamic group of girls on the bill. These are strong and confident women who have their own voices, styles, and attitudes. I love that. They’re going to make every night stand out and be unforgettable. I had the support of some really great mentors and artists I admired over the years. There’s nothing better than being able to shine a spotlight on someone else now. Make sure you get to Every Girl On Tour early to watch these ladies bring down the house,” Yearwood said.

Most program applications must be completed online no later than January 15, 2020, though the Founders Award, Woody Guthrie, and Student Composer Awards have extended deadlines. For complete details and to apply, please visit bmifoundation.org/programs.
