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. The duo meets as old friends, welcoming you into the Acoustic Living Room to share songs and stories near and dear to their hearts, including Mattea’s beloved classics such as “18 Wheels and a Dozen Roses,” “Where’ve You Been?” and many other hits, plus a handful of more eclectic and often requested tunes from her extensive catalog, and a sprinkling of brand-new material, all reinterpreted for the duo format.
Her eighteen albums are woven through with bluegrass, gospel, and Celtic influences and have garnered multiple Country Music Association (CMA), Academy of Country Music (ACM), 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, is a collection of songs that celebrates the Appalachian culture of her native West Virginia and expands the vocabulary of acoustic roots music that has always served as her artistic center. Mattea is currently working on new material and looks forward to sharing a new album with audiences in 2018.
Mattea remains one of Nashville’s most spiritual singers, and the songs she sings about love lost and humility are as fine as any she has recorded.

Her voice stands out as a rare blend of warmth and power.
—Hartford Courant
Kathy Mattea has never stuck to conventions within any genre: a country-music hitmaker in the late ’80s and early ’90s, Mattea has also made forays into Scottish folk, gospel and roots music.
