Trisha Yearwood has earned her highest-ranking AC chart hit as “Broken” hits No. 20 on the Nielsen BDS-based Adult Contemporary rankings (dated April 30). After performing the song as part of FOX’s The Passion on March 20, Yearwood visited Live With Kelly & Michael on March 23 for another rendition of “Broken.”

Since then, fans have requested the song during Yearwood’s live shows as part of The Garth Brooks World Tour with Trisha Yearwood.

“I love to look out from the stage and see fans with their signs, requesting ‘Broken,'” said Yearwood. “It’s proof to me how powerful the song is. I felt it myself when I first heard the original version, sung by Lifehouse, and it’s confirmed each night on the road. I truly am blessed by ‘Broken.’”

Yearwood’s music garnered 19 Top 10 hits, including five No. 1 songs on Nielsen’s country songs rankings over the past 25 years.

Yearwood covered five songs on The Passion soundtrack from Rogers & Hammerstein (“You’ll Never Walk Alone” from the musical, Carousel), Jewel (“Hands”), Lifehouse (“Broken”), Jason Mraz (“I Won’t Give Up”) and Whitney Houston (“My Love Is Your Love”).
