A Pennsylvania coal miner’s granddaughter, Irene Kelley went from singing lead with the bluegrass band Redwing to Nashville and a pair of major label singles. While her performing career didn’t take off back then, her songwriting career took flight. An exceptional co-writer, she had her hand in songs recorded by Alan Jackson, Trisha Yearwood, Loretta Lynn, Little Big Town, Rhonda Vincent, Claire Lynch, Darrell Scott, The Whites, the Osborne Brothers, and Bill Anderson. Returning full speed to bluegrass with 2014’s acclaimed Pennsylvania Coal, her solo career finally soared, establishing as a well-rounded bluegrass vocalist and performer as well as a foremost songwriter.

Listeners may already familiar with Irene Kelley from her performances at the Grand Ole Opry, the CMA Music Festival, IBMA, Folk Alliance International, the Americana Music Festival, BayFest, Dollywood, and elsewhere. She’s also enjoyed airtime on CMT, GAC, NPR’s “Live at Mountain Stage" and on other syndicated programs.
