To quote one of Trisha Yearwood's hits, the country star may have been wondering, "How do I live?" during a plane ride last week.
On her way home to Oklahoma from a three-day, 60-mile walk to benefit the Susan G. Komen breast cancer research fund last week, Yearwood took a frightening detour.
While miles in the sky, passengers heard a disturbing noise. "We had been in the air for almost an hour when we heard a loud pop," Yearwood tells PEOPLE.
What she said sounded "almost like a gunshot" was in fact the cracking of the front left window of the plane at 30,000 feet.

When she isn't recording blockbuster country hits, raising three daughters, cooking up a storm or being the glamorous wife of Garth Brooks, Trisha Yearwood is ... drinking milk.
Yearwood, whose cookbook hit No. 3 on the New York Times Bestseller list in April, is the latest celebrity to sport the white mustache in her "Got Milk?" ad campaign which debuts in August magazines.
"I grew up on a farm, so I've been singing milk's praises my whole life," the Georgia-raised Yearwood, 43, says in the ad.

Garth Brooks has a new career: Mr. Mom.
While on CBS's Early Show Thursday to promote her new album, Heaven, Heartache and the Power of Love, Brooks's wife, Trisha Yearwood, addressed Brooks's latest endeavor.
"He's a great dad, you know. He loves his girls and he realizes that it's important to be there every day," said Yearwood, 43, referring to the 46-year-old Brooks's children from his first marriage: Taylor, 15; August, 14; and Allie, 11. "And so that's what he's doing, and I'm proud of him for it."

Chart-topping country star Trisha Yearwood has scored another success – as a bestselling author.
Her new cookbook, Trisha Yearwood's Georgia Cooking in an Oklahoma Kitchen, hit No. 3 on the New York Times Bestseller List this week in the "Advice, How-To & Miscellaneous" category. It's the week's top selling cookbook. In a statement, Yearwood said she was "overwhelmed" by the response.
Co-authored with her mother, Gwen, and sister Beth, the book began as a scrapbook of favorite family recipes put together for Trisha, 43, when she moved to Oklahoma to live with husband Garth Brooks, 46. Specialties include Gwen's Fried Chicken with Milk Gravy, Daddy's Biscuits and Just-Married Pound Cake.

Uma Thurman's life seems glamorous – movie premieres (such as for Be Cool, her film with John Travolta, opening March 4), fabulous clothes, jet-setting vacations. But really, she's another single working mom trying to balance career and kids. "It's really, really hard," she says. "Actually, my ex-husband (Ethan Hawke) said to me the other day that I clearly was someone who wanted to be a full-time mother, and still wanted to be an actress, and that I kept insisting I could do it, but I couldn't. I try to give all of myself." And if a job's not in her hometown, fuhgeddaboutit. "Whatever parts I may have played around the world, I don't even know what they were, because New York City was the only location that I was going to work in this year. And I don't know how long I can do that – it's a very difficult balance," she says. "I don't want to quit, I love what I do. It's just something I'm fighting for, to try to find a way to keep my foot in the business satisfactorily and still be creative and stimulated, and take care of my children."
