Irene Kelley - "Pennsylvania Coal" album review CMT Edge

Drawing on her love of bluegrass and classic country music, Irene Kelley is stepping back into the spotlight with Pennsylvania Coal, her first album in more than 10 years. A Nashville resident since 1984, she’s landed memorable songwriting cuts with Alan Jackson (“A Little Bluer Than That”) and Trisha Yearwood (“O Mexico”), singers who aren’t shy about selecting sad material. The melancholy beauty in those songs is evident throughout Kelley’s new project, especially on the lead track, “You Don’t Run Across My Mind.”
