Who is she?
Patty Loveless lives and breathes country
music, which shouldn't surprise listeners and faithful fans, alike. After all, she's built a 20+ year career from
making music that relates with others who grew up in the country, just like herself. Growing up in a coal miner's family,
she picked up her father's guitar and learned to play the instrument at age 11. While most of her friends and peers were in
school, Patty schooled herself on country music - both the songs and history. By the time she was sixteen years old, she was
making friends with country music greats like Dolly Parton, performing with The Wilburn Brothers, and shortly after, signing
her first recording contract. Next came her command on the country charts with a 14-Top-Ten-hit run!
Patty's fans love
her for making country music; through the years, she has been commended time and again for keeping alive the classic
sounds of country music. Her own songs "Timber I'm Falling in Love," "Blame It On Your Heart," "You Don't Even Know Who I
Am," and countless others have become classic favorites themselves. With her bluegrass album, Mountain Soul, Patty
reflected on childhood memories, her upbringing, and the music she loved growing up, and the result garnered praise - the
album was named one of country music's best albums. Patty's career has consistently proven flawless, and her latest album
is no exception. Dreamin' My Dreams. She says, "That title reminds me of how I first felt when I came to Nashville.
I felt I was living my dreams." And so, the dream continues for a country girl who chased her dream all the way to Music City
- but she's never forgotten the people, music, or places that inspired her to dream those dreams.
