For Kathy Mattea, Appalachian also represents an essential piece of her musical education and heritage. “Calling Me Home” released in 2012, is a collection of songs that celebrates the Appalachian culture of her native West Virginia. The album features songs and stories of bravery, pride and grief and to quote Kathy herself, "This album is about home."
