“One of country music’s most successful artists”– Rolling Stone


Hailed by The Washington Post as “one of Nashville’s finest song interpreters,” Kathy Mattea has enjoyed much success and acclaim during her forty-year career in country, bluegrass and folk music, including two Grammy wins, four CMA Awards, four #1 country singles, and five gold albums (plus a platinum Greatest Hits collection).

Her latest album, 2018’s Pretty Bird, was produced by her old friend, roots music wizard Tim O’Brien. The wide-ranging collection of songs chronicles a period of rededication to singing, digging back in with a vocal coach and emerging with a poignant and eclectic album. In addition to creating and recording music and performing live on tour, Kathy is increasingly involved with public broadcasting, consulting and contributing on screen in Ken Burns’ 2019 documentary for PBS Country Music, and recently replacing founder Larry Groce as the host of the long-running NPR show Mountain Stage.

Mattea is one of the most respected female country stars of her era, a commercially successful hitmaker who can bring elements of folk, bluegrass, gospel, and singer/songwriter intimacy to her music. She offers the same commitment to country pop as she does to mining songs, honky tonk, and Celtic ballads. 

Increasingly in demand as a public speaker, Kathy regularly presents keynotes and educational programs at colleges and civic venues across the country, both as a stand-alone and in conjunction with concert appearances. Her long history of activism has led Kathy to bring public attention to several current environmental issues, including climate change and some mining practices in her native Appalachia.

Recommended for Fans of Mary Chapin Carpenter, Suzy Bogguss, Emmylou Harris and Patty Loveless.
