Kathleen Alice Mattea, who is more populary known by her stage name - Kathy Mattea is one of the most respected American country artists of her era, i.e. the 1980s. This singer/songwriter is also a bluegrass performer who is often noted for bringing Celtic sounds to her music. Active since the early 1980s, Mattea has released 17 albums till date, along with charting over 30 singles on the Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks charts. To mention a few of her top singles would include Goin' Gone, Come from the Heart, Eighteen Wheels and a Dozen Roses, Burnin' Old Memories, Where've You Been, and many more.
Born in South Charleston, West Virginia, USA, during the year of 1959, Kathleen Alice Mattea grew up in Cross Lanes. She graduated from the Nitro High School, which was in close proximity. Her love for singing developed when she was in at Girl Scout camp, thus, she received classical voice training early in junior high school. Later, upon discovering folk music, Mattea also took up guitar lessons. While attending college - the West Virginia University, in 1976, the young girl joined the bluegrass band called Pennsboro and after two years she gave up her studies to move to Nashville with her boyfriend.
While doing odd jobs and waiting tables, Mattea honed her songwriting skills simultaneously. She also did backup vocals for Bobby Goldsboro, and sang demos for a number of Nashville publishers and songwriters, such as Byron Hill. Hill brought Mattea to the notice of Frank Jones, the head of Mercury Records at that time. Soon, by 1983, based on the strength of her demo tape, Mattea got signed with the Mercury Records. In the following year, she released her self-titled debut album, which was followed by her sophomore effort - From My Heart in 1985. However, none of these records produced any chart busting hits.
Kathy Mattea's commercial and critical breakthrough came with her third album - Walk the Way the Wind Blows, which released in 1986. This album, being more inclined towards folk music, produced many hits. Her cover of Nanci Griffith's Love at the Five and Dime was her first major hit. Another reason of drawing the attention of the masses to this track was the fact that renowned country singer Don Williams had sung harmony vocals on it. Nevertheless, the record also produced three other Top 10 hits, including You're the Power. It was her 1987's album - Untasted Honey that produced the two #1 country hits, entitled Goin' Gone and Eighteen Wheels and a Dozen Roses, which became her signature hit. She also received the 1988 CMA (County Music Associations) for this track as the single of the year.
In 1990, Kathy Mattea won her first Grammy Award for Best Female Country Vocal. In addition, another County Music Associations Female Vocalist of the Year was awarded to her for her hit track Where've You Been. In 1993, the talented artist achieved her second Grammy Award for her Christmas album, Good News, which was more or less gospel-oriented. The album's first single - Mary, Did You Know? was a huge success, and got covered by famous artists like Kenny Rogers with Wynonna Judd, and also Reba McEntire.
Switching labels to MCA Nashville, Mattea released The Innocent Years, an album which was ballad-heavy, and was a solemn tribute to her father who was in bad shape and health at that time. Soon, with her growing desire to explore her taste for Celtic folk, Mattea again changed her label and moved to Narada records. She debuted for it in 2002 with the eclectic album - Roses. Her next album with Narada was the 2003 Christmas album, called Joy for Christmas Day.
With her latest album - Coal, released in 2008, Kathy Mattea combines her social activism with songs about coal-mining. The album has recived a considerable amount of successive response, as it made its debut at #64 on the country albums chart.
Till date, the artist enjoys a huge fan following from all over the world. She receives strong support from a very active fan club, whose members are known as the ?Matteaheads'. Mattea continues to tour and perform at different venues in various cities from across the globe. Soon, the Kathy Mattea Tickets will be available in the market once again, as Kathy Mattea hits the road once again!
