She’ll also present some of her Top 20 radio hits, including “Eighteen Wheels and a Dozen Roses,” and the bluesy “455 Rocket.”

Mattea sings about her life growing up in a coal mining area, like many of us have and can relate to. Even loveable pop-country singer Taylor Swift hasn’t received three Grammy Awards, so don’t miss the chance to catch someone as talented as Kathy Mattea.
