Kathy mattea good news


Good News is the first album of Christmas music released by American country music artist Kathy Mattea. It was released in late 1993 on Mercury Records. "Mary, Did You Know?" and "What a Wonderful Beginning" were both covered by Kenny Rogers (the former, as a duet with Wynonna Judd) on his 1996 Christmas album The Gift. "Brightest and Best" is the only traditional song covered here.
