Walking Away A Winner - Kathy Mattea - 1994 - (Album - Walking Away A Winner)
Kathy Mattea of course is a great vocalist who had a long list of big hit songs for a number of years. She has recorded classics like, Eighteen Wheels And A Dozen Roses and Where've You Been. Her voice is very refined and easy to listen to. But she joins the list of artists that history has not been overly kind to. As chart wise, commercially successful and as talented as she was and is, much of her music has been lost over time from airplay. During her run I was a fan, and this one always stuck with me. It was a reinvention of sorts for her as it was more uptempo and more produced than many of her songs, and I loved it. It was a #3 hit on the charts and was written by some of Nashville's best song writers. Great song, great performance and this song ended up in the right hands. Today she tours and performs with Suzy Bogguss.
