Hailed by The Washington Post as “one of Nashville’s finest song interpreters,” Kathy Mattea has enjoyed the kind of success many artists only dream of: two Grammy wins, four CMA Awards, four number one country singles, and five gold albums (plus a platinum collection of her greatest hits). The dream almost ended, though, when Mattea entered her 50s and began to find her voice changing, a time that she describes as her “dark night of the soul”. Instead, Mattea dug in with a vocal coach, re-committed to her music, and emerged with the most poignant album of her career, ‘Pretty Bird’, produced with her old friend Tim O’Brien. We are honoured to welcome to one of country and Americana music’s most enduring and beloved figures.
