Kathy Mattea - Where've You Been?

This was song of the year in 1990.  It is easy to understand why.  This song touches the heart.  Mattea's husband (John Vezner) and Don Henry wrote this song.  It is about John's own grandparents.  They had been in the same hospital, but didn't know it.  In her confusion grandmother had become mute.  Until they finally brought her husband into the room.  She said "Where have you been."  At first Kathy did not want to sing this, knowing it would be hard to perform in concert because of the emotions.  However she finally relented.  She wanted it simple, acoustic guitar, piano and upright bass.
