Kat Edmonson makes her second appearance on Mountain Stage, recorded live in Charleston, W.Va. Originally from Houston, Edmonson eventually relocated to Austin, where her jazz-inspired singing soon made her a local favorite. She released her debut album, Take To The Sky, in 2009; that led to a gig singing alongside fellow Texan Willie Nelson and occasionally recording with Lyle Lovett.

Edmonson's fun, timeless new album is titled The Big Picture.
