Aside from serving as her first Lexington performance in over a decade, Saturday’s WoodSongs show co-bills the singer with another Kentucky music star by the name of Osborne – bluegrass titan Bobby Osborne. But the two artists are not related – or are they?

“Of course, I know of the Osborne Brothers,” she said. “I’ve always wondered if there is some familial connection. When I look at pictures of those guys, they look just like my Uncle Eddie. I wonder if some kind of family tree is happening there. Maybe we will find out on Saturday.”
