Well this is pretty dang cool. Are you one of the millions of people who love being an online farmer? Then this story is for you because Trisha Yearwood is joining one of the most popular online farming game as an animated character.

Zynga, maker of many popular Facebook/mobile games, announced this week that Yearwood would be helping them celebrate the 10th anniversary of its original hit classic game, FarmVille, by lending her likeness and her new single to FarmVille 2: Country Escape, to kick off Zynga’s multi-month anniversary celebration.

In preparation for her appearance in the game, Ms. Yearwood joined Phuong Phillips, Zynga’s Chief Legal Officer and Women at Zynga (WAZ) executive sponsor, for a WAZ Community Breakfast and listening party as she debuted her new single “Every Girl in This Town,” which celebrates females achieving their potential in every environment.

“As someone who plays FarmVille and having grown up on a farm in Georgia, the game ties back to my roots,” says Trisha Yearwood. “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.”

In the coming months, Trisha will appear in-game as a down-to-earth farmhand avatar in FarmVille 2: Country Escape. Trisha’s new inspirational 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 their daily goals.

Zynga is currently developing a brand new FarmVille mobile title, its newest addition to the iconic franchise, which will introduce players to new characters and an exciting twist to the gameplay experience.

If you don’t already have FarmVille downloaded on your phone or tablet, you can visit the Apple app store, Google Play, or Amazon.
