Mamma Coal came into being when Carra Stasney of Copper & Coal became pregnant in May of 2013. The band was in the studio recording their first album and nobody knew she was carrying a child, not even her. When things started to show, C&C’s drummer Kevin Major started calling Carra Mamma Coal. And it just stuck. Meanwhile, the album, which featured seven of Carra’s original songs, went to hit number one on the Freeform American Roots Music chart. When she got the idea to create a solo concept album about a young mother gone outlaw–re-imagining Willie Nelson’s classic Red Headed Stranger–the name Mamma Coal couldn’t have been more fitting.
