Grammy Award winning singer Kathy Mattea welcomes you into her "Acoustic Living Room" to share songs and stories near and dear to her heart - including Kathy's beloved classics such as "Where've You Been?," for which she won her first Grammy for "Best Female Country Vocal Performance," "18 Wheels and a Dozen Roses," "455 Rocket" and many other hits, plus a handful of more eclectic and often requested tunes from her extensive catalogue, and a sprinkling of brand new material.
Long known as an impeccable songcatcher, her 18 albums are woven through with bluegrass, gospel and Celtic influences, and have garnered multiple CMA, ACM, and Grammy Awards. A genuine storyteller, Kathy draws inspiration from her Appalachian roots and is a torchbearer for often overlooked musical legacies like those of Hazel Dickens and Jean Ritchie. Her most recent album, "Calling Me Home," is a collection of songs that celebrate the Appalachian culture of her native West Virginia and expands the vocabulary of acoustic roots music that has always served as her artistic center.
Most artists take fewer and fewer risks as they get older, but Kathy Mattea is a striking exception. During her radio-ruling days in the late ‘80s and early ‘90s, Kathy charted mainstream country hits, with 16 of them reaching the top ten. These days, she sings with the perspective of an Appalachian whose career took her elsewhere, which is what makes her as contemporary as she is traditional.
