New Label, New Album For Kathy Mattea
Singer To Release Her First New Album In Four Years
We haven’t heard much from Kathy Mattea in a while, but the Grammy-winning singer has just signed with Nashville-based Sugar Hill Records. The label plans to release “Calling Me Home,” which Mattea describes as a love letter to her home state of West Virginia, later this year. He last album, “Coal,” was released in 2008 and was a tribute to the mining traditions of Appalachia.
“Signing at Sugar Hill is like coming home,” Mattea says in a press statement. “It’s a wonderful fit for the music I am making these days, and I’m so excited to be there.”
A reliable hit maker in the late 1980s and early 1990s, Mattea charted a total 37 songs on Billboard’s country singles chart between 1983 and 2000 while signed to Mercury Records. Her hit streak included 16 top 10 singles, four of which went to No. 1: “Goin’ Gone,” “Eighteen Wheels And A Dozen Roses,” “Come From The Heart,” and “Burnin’ Old Memories.” Another of her best-remembered songs, Grammy-winner “Where’ve You Been,” peaked at No. 10 in 1989.
