Singer-songwriter Kaitlyn Baker’s music reflects the beauty of the Cumberland Mountains and the ruggedness of the coal-mining culture in which she was raised.
“My father and grandfather used to work in the coal mines,” she says. “People would gather around the town hall and play bluegrass music. I grew up listening to old rock and gospel. I feel as if all those things combined to give me a bluesy, country-rock style that’s a little sassy.”
This native of Pound, Virginia has co-written songs with established Nashville songwriters and has opened for such artists as Billy Currington, Doug Stone, Sawyer Brown, Rhonda Vincent, Sammy Kershaw, Brett Eldredge and Josh Gracin. With three self-produced albums behind her, Kaitlyn recently signed with Silvercreek Records in Nashville and plans to release her debut album on that label this summer, through Sony/RED.

White says, “I was also nominated in 2011 for the same award and it is certainly a tremendous honor. I am truly blessed to be part of this wonderful broadcast from the Lincoln Theatre in Marion, Virginia and this nomination is a direct reflection of how great our crew, staff, and volunteers are in producing our concert series”.
Song of the Mountains is in their ninth year of tapings in Marion, Virginia and is currently on 190 plus public television outlets across America. The public television concert series is produced by the Lincoln Theatre and UNC-TV based in Research Triangle Park, North Carolina.
