Arts & Entertainment Kathy Mattea in concert Saturday, July 20

Kathy Mattea, a beloved country music artist who has been recording hits for more than 20 years, will be in concert at the Smoky Mountain Center for the Performing Arts on Saturday, July 20, at 7:30 p.m. Tickets start at $18 each.

Famous for hits such as, “Where’ve You Been” and “Eighteen Wheels and a Dozen Roses,” Mattea often brings touches of folk, Celtic, and traditional country sounds to her music. She has received multiple Academy of Country Music Awards, Country Music Association Awards, and Grammy Awards. She has performed alongside artists such as Garth Brooks, Kenny Rogers, Bette Miller, and Celine Dion.

In her latest album, “Calling Me Home,” Mattea sings old-time Appalachian songs with a bluesy, bluegrass feel. She is a native of West Virginia and stays true to her roots as she sings about those things important to the Appalachia people.

“I feel like I just made the album of my life; I articulated something I was put here to say,” said Mattea. She is excited to tell her story, which is easily seen in her passion-filled and enthusiastic Calling Me Home tour.
