The Drop: Kim Richey

In conjunction with the release of her first album in five years, Edgeland, the GRAMMY Museum will welcome acclaimed GRAMMY®-nominated singer/songwriter Kim Richey to the Clive Davis Theater for an intimate conversation, followed by a special performance featuring Chuck Prophet. The evening will be hosted by GRAMMY Museum Executive Director Scott Goldman. Edgeland, which drops on March 30, moves roots singer Richey through the topography of the life lived by a woman committed to following her music. Recorded in Nashville, Edgeland is Richey’s eighth studio album and was produced by Brad Jones (Over the Rhine, Hayes Carll, Josh Rouse). A who’s who of Nashville players joined Richey in the studio, including Chris Carmichael (string arranger); Dan Cohen (multi-instrumentalist); Dan Dugmore (multiinstrumentalist); Robyn Hitchcock (guitar); Doug Lancio (multi-instrumentalist); Jerry Roe (drums); and Pat Sansone (multi-instrumentalist). As a songwriter, Richey has written hits for Radney Foster (“Nobody Wins”) and Trisha Yearwood (“Believe Me Baby (I Lied)”), the latter of which was nominated for a Best Female Country Vocal Performance GRAMMY, as well as songs for Mary Chapin Carpenter, Jim Lauderdale, Jamie Lawson, Patty Loveless, and Gretchen Peters. Her vocals also appear on Jason Isbell’s praised Southeastern album, as well as albums by Ryan Adams and Shawn Colvin.
