Kathy Mattea has signed to Sugar Hill Records and will release an album that pays homage to her native West Virginia. Titled Calling Me Home, the project will be released later this year. "Signing at Sugar Hill is like coming home. It's a wonderful fit for the music I am making these days, and I'm so excited to be there," she said. Mattea charted 16 Top 10 hits on Mercury Records between 1986 and 1994, including "Eighteen Wheels and a Dozen Roses" and "Where've You Been."
