To celebrate its 10-year anniversary, publisher Zynga is announcing a new farming franchise game for mobile. They’re collaborating with three-time Grammy award-winning country music star Trisha Yearwood (who is married to the one and only Garth Brooks) on the project. Yearwood will lend her likeness and her new single to FarmVille 2: Country Escape to help kick off the multi-month anniversary celebration.
Yearwood said that as someone who plays FarmVille and having grown up on a farm in Georgia, the game ties back to her roots. "With women also being the central characters in all the FarmVille games, it shows that farming -- like music, tech, politics, science and entrepreneurship -- should be accessible to anyone,” she said.
Zynga said that in the coming months, Yearwood will appear in-game as a down-to-earth farmhand avatar. Her single, “Every Girl in this Town,” will play as she helps fans find rare items on their farms and gain access to in-game rewards that help them meet daily goals.
