GRAMMY Award–winning singer Kathy Mattea and her longtime collaborator, guitarist Bill Cooley, have shared one of Nashville’s most musically rich partnerships for over two decades. Her eighteen albums are woven through with bluegrass, gospel, and Celtic influences and have garnered multiple Country Music Association, Academy of Country Music, and GRAMMY Awards. A genuine storyteller, Mattea draws inspiration from her Appalachian roots and is a torchbearer for often overlooked musical legacies such as those of Hazel Dickens and Jean Ritchie. Her most recent album, Calling Me Home (2012), 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.
