  • In an interview for American Online (AOL), Trisha Yearwood was asked if there was one song from Heaven, Heartache, and the Power of Love, which she was particularly proud of. The Country superstar replied: "Well, I could go through the whole album and tell you why I love each one, because I think it's my favorite collection of songs that I've ever done. My sentimental favorite, though, is the last cut, 'Sing You Back to Me,' because it immediately made me think of my father. This is the first record I've made since he passed away. We were very close, and when I heard that song, I thought, 'This is for my dad.' And I wasn't looking for a song to dedicate to my father, but when I heard this song, I thought, 'Wow, I really want to sing this, even if it's just for me to have myself.' So we went in after the record was done with just an acoustic guitar and did a performance of this song just for me to have, to give to my mom and my sister. And my producer, Garth Fundis, said, 'It's emotional and it's real, and you need to put it on the record.'"
  • In the same interview Trisha Yearwood was asked how she'd describe Heaven, Heartache, and the Power of Love: "Energy, energy, energy! I'm sort of known for ballads - those are my bread and butter. But there were just so many cool, uptempo songs that showed up for this record. And some of it was the enthusiasm that transferred into the studio. A lot of that came from changing things up, signing with a new label - there's a lot of energy there. It just seems like this record was meant to be. So maybe those are my 3 words: 'meant to be.' Because when I listen back now, I hear how much fun I was having during the process."
