“I was raised by really great parents,” Yearwood exclusively shared with Fox News Digital. “My mom and dad, who are both passed on, but they’re still with me … My sister’s my date tonight because Garth [Brooks] couldn’t be here. It’s family. It’s about how you’re raised.”

So that’s been a challenge to kind of get there with the chefs, because they’re chefs – I’m a home cook, and I’m like, ‘It’s really simple. Meatloaf has four ingredients.’ But we’re getting there, and it’s been a fun process.”
