Personalities | Kathy Mattea | New Country & The Neo-Traditionalists
(Vocals, guitar, b. 1959)
Kathy Mattea joined bluegrass band Pennsboro as a student, before moving to Nashville. After working in Bobby Goldsboroâ€™s road show, she signed with Mercury in 1983. Her first two albums were only modest successes, but Walk The Way The Wind Blows (1986) included her first Top 3 single â€“ a cover of Nanci Griffithâ€™s â€˜Love At The Five And Dimeâ€™. Her folksy style came to the fore on Untasted Honey (1987), which included her career song, â€˜Eighteen Wheels And A Dozen Rosesâ€™. CMA Female Vocalist Of The Year in 1989 and 1990, Mattea has done much to expand country musicâ€™s parameters.
