Trisha Yearwood shows off weight loss at country music awards

Country star Trisha Yearwood, 48, looked notably slim at Sunday's Academy of Country Music Awards, and for good reason. The Grammy-winning singer, host of cooking show "Trisha's Southern Kitchen," has lost 20 pounds.

"I've been dieting and exercising and I've lost about 20 lbs," she told People in February. She rarely eats sugar now, though does occasionally indulge in macaroni and cheese, the singer said.

"Trisha's Southern Kitchen" airs on the Food Network, and features Yearwood's family-inspired recipes. She is the author of two cookbooks, "Georgia Cooking in an Oklahoma Kitchen" and "Home Cooking With Trisha Yearwood."
