Known for such classic country hits as “Eighteen Wheels and A Dozen Roses,” Grammy Award-winner and Charleston, West Virginia native Kathy Mattea spent her childhood immersed in Appalachian culture, where mining is a way of life. Throughout her career, Mattea has explored music’s most basic human essence; melodies steeped in emotion and timeless narratives delivered with beauty by an unmistakable voice. Through projects such as her Grammy-nominated recording “COAL” and her environmental activism, Kathy pays tribute to "my place and my people."
