Trisha Yearwood presented an award as well as her newly trimmed body at Sunday’s Academy of Country Music Awards, y’all.

The Grammy winner and wife of singer Garth Brooks has been making headlines with her Food Network show “Trisha’s Southern Kitchen” and bestselling cook books, but her slimmed-down physique and moderation diet are putting her front and center once again.

“Trisha has always been a successful, shapely bombshell. Recently she has taken her fitness routine to a new level,” her spokesperson told E! News.

The 48-year-old’s amped-up workouts also helped her stun in her body-hugging Stella McCartney dress at the awards show in Las Vegas.

“One of the ways she has done that is by mixing it up and making exercising fun. As the host of ‘Trisha’s Southern Kitchen,’ she still makes her traditional recipes like mac and cheese and country quiche, but those dishes are balanced with the moderation she has always spoken about.”

Yearwood told People magazine in February that she’d been dieting and exercising. She lost 20 pounds on the regimen, and added that she’s “doing very little sugar and occasionally I have the mac and cheese.”

“Real people battle their weight,” she said. “We all struggled between eating healthy and falling off the wagon. That’s how I live.”

Yes, ma’am!
