  • Recorded at Sound Emporium and Sound Stage, Nashville, Tennessee.
  • All tracks have been digitally mastered using HDCD technology.
  • EVERYBODY KNOWS was nominated for a 1997 Grammy Award for Best Country Album. "Believe Me Baby (I Lied)" was nominated for 1997 Grammys for Best Female Country Vocal Performance and Best Country Song.
  • Trisha Yearwood makes perfect country-rock radio singles, with stinging electric-guitar riffs, sighing pedal-steel leads, lilting dashes of rock piano and organ, and choruses a young Linda Ronstadt would have paid the Devil handsomely for. All of which would be as meaningless as any other cowgirl's latest studio project if not for Yearwood's steadfast refusal to be a cowgirl at all. EVERYBODY KNOWS, her sixth album, is filled with songs about nice young boys who grew up to be corporate tyrants ("Little Hercules") or couch potatoes ("I Need You"), and nice young girls who have finally figured out how to move on ("I Want To Live Again," "Hello, I'm Gone").
  • This is anything but stand-by-your-man country, and it ends with a stunning, piercing folk-rock song, "A Lover Is Forever" (written by Steve Goodman and Fred Knobloch, and previously recorded by Rosanne Cash), in which the other woman in a man's life excoriates him for settling for the wife he already has. The message here isn't break up the family. It's something much more powerful and complicated: Don't renege on your love.

  • Trisha Yearwood firmly enters middle-age with Everybody Knows, a collection of ballads and country-pop. Even when she kicks the tempo into high-gear, Yearwood and her band lay back, easing the beat along instead of pushing it. Similarly, the country-pop is engaging and relaxed, gently winning you over. But the heart of the album lies in her ballads, which are appropriately theatrical and grandiose -- it's big music with big melodies. The quality of the songs are a little uneven, but Yearwood continues to improve as a singer, which means she brings conviction even to the lackluster material on Everybody Knows. ~ Thom Owens
Professional Reviews
Entertainment Weekly (9/6/96, p.77) - "...a mix of country-pop, big hooks, and over-the-top MOR ballads. Yearwood's getting better at conveying nuance, but it's still her knowing soprano...that rings Nashville's chimes."

- Rating: B+

Q (12/96, p.144) - 3 Stars (out of 5) - "...Big of voice but nothing too rural-sounding, Yearwood occupies a patch not dissimilar to that of Mary Chapin Carpenter: here rock and country kind of merge....a fine and very believable interpreter of others' songs..."
