Kathy Mattea: From Nashville
November 20, 2020 | 7:30 pm
Hailed by the Washington Post as “one of Nashville’s finest song interpreters,” Kathy Mattea has enjoyed much success and acclaim during her 35-year career in country, bluegrass, and folk music, including two Grammy wins, four CMA Awards, four number one country singles, and five gold albums (plus a platinum greatest hits collection). In addition to creating and recording music and performing live on tour, Kathy is increasingly involved with public broadcasting, regularly guest-hosting on NPR’s long-running Mountain Stage (sitting in for longtime host Larry Groce), as well as consulting and contributing on screen in Ken Burns’s 2019 documentary for PBS, Country Music.
In this intimate and unique concert—filmed exclusively for UGA Presents—Kathy shares songs and stories from Tennessee with her fans in Athens. Join us for a live Q&A with the artist immediately following the premiere on Nov 20 at approx. 8:15 pm.
