Kathy Mattea Readies Pretty Bird For September Release

Artist: Kathy Mattea Album: Pretty Bird Label: Captain Potato Release date: September 9, 2018

Active since 1984 as a recording artist, she has charted more than thirty singles on the Billboard Hot Country Songs charts, including four that reached No. 1: "Goin' Gone", "Eighteen Wheels and a Dozen Roses", "Come from the Heart", and "Burnin' Old Memories", plus twelve more that charted within the top ten. She has released fourteen studio albums, two Christmas albums, and one greatest hits album. Most of her material was recorded for Universal Music Group Nashville's Mercury Records Nashville division between 1984 and 2000, with later albums being issued on Narada Productions, her own Captain Potato label, and Sugar Hill Records.

Now word has been released (or at least teased on Amazon) that Mattea will be using that Captain Potato label to release an all-new album this September called Pretty Bird. Details are scarce on the project, but her last two projects, Coal and Calling Me Home, were brilliant- and this goes to the top of what we're anticipating for the second half of the year.
