NEW YORK, March 7 (UPI) -- U.S. country music star and cookbook author Trisha Yearwood is to star in "Trisha's Southern Kitchen" this spring, the Food Network said Wednesday.

The six-episode series is to debut April 14.

"Trisha's best known as a music legend, but her talents don't stop there. She's a passionate and talented cook, whose down-to-earth style, winning recipes, and southern hospitality will charm and inspire viewers," Bob Tuschman, the network's general manager and senior vice president of programming, said in a statement.

"For me, cooking is very connected to my family and friends," Yearwood said. "Every recipe on the show carries wonderful memories with my loved ones and I can't wait to share my meals, stories and family photos with Food Network viewers."
