"Trisha Yearwood's Let's Be Frank caught my eye when I passed it in a record store last year. The album cover presents the pop country star with a fedora hat cocked over one eye, her shirt unbuttoned and her tie loosened. I read moxie and swagger in that photo, and, I bought the record on a whim. Like Prelude to a Kiss, the album was recorded at Capitol Recording Studios, and in the liner notes Yearwood gushes at the opportunity "to record in Frank's studio, sing on Frank's microphone, sit on Frank's chair." Produced by Don Was, arranged by Vincent Mendoza, and engineered by Al Schmitt, Let's Be Frank was recorded live in the studio. Plenty of well-known ballads appear on the session — "Witchcraft," "All the Way," and "Over the Rainbow" among them — and Let's Be Frank also contains superior performances of two old-school drinking songs ("Drinking Again" and "One for My Baby") that may appeal to those listeners who find themselves imbibing the occasional cocktail during this listless stretch of time. In the pre-pandemic days I played Let's Be Frank when friends visited, and I look forward to a time when I can safely repeat that ritual." — Jeff Wilson, The Absolute Sound, June 11, 2020

Celebrate the iconic songs of Frank Sinatra with Trisha Yearwood's latest album, Let's Be Frank. For this landmark album, which Yearwood dreamed of creating for the past 20 years, she recorded the songs live with a 55-piece orchestra at the iconic Capitol Records building in Hollywood. The album was produced by Don Was (president of Blue Note Records) and recorded by legendary Grammy-winning engineer Al Schmitt.
Yearwood paid a special musical tribute to Frank Sinatra by using his own microphone — and sitting on the same stool where he sat while recording the original songs. This album makes a great gift for any music lover — including yourself!
"I've done some standards over the years in my shows, and this is a record I've been wanting to make for 20 years," Trisha says. "When I got off the road and started working on a regular album, I also wanted to do this. This was just an incredible project. And I had so much fun."
This album was plated and pressed on 150-gram vinyl by Quality Record Pressings, known for crafting the finest-sounding LPs in record manufacturing today.
"I am so incredibly pleased with everything you and QRP did for Let's Be Frank," says Yearwood. "The vinyl is stunning, and sounds amazing. THANK YOU!"
