Kat Edmonson performs "Rainy Day Woman" and "All The Way," two tracks from her critically acclaimed album The Big Picture, on "CBS This Morning: Saturday" January 3rd.

The Big Picture, available now on Sony Music Masterworks, debuted at #1 on the Billboard Heatseekers Albums Chart, #1 on Contemporary Jazz Chart, and #2 on the Total Jazz Chart. Kicking off in her home state of Texas, Edmonson will perform across the U.S. throughout February and March, including shows at Austin City Limits' Moody Theater and Le Poisson Rouge in New York City. See full tour dates below. Tickets are on sale now for select dates and go on sale for remaining dates this week at http://www.katedmonson.com/.

The Big Picture is Edmonson's label debut and was recorded with Grammy-nominated producer Mitchell Froom (Paul McCartney) in his Los Angeles studio.

This album follows her 2012 release, Way Down Low, which The New York Times hailed as "fresh as a spring bouquet" and The Boston Globe called "one of the greatest vocal albums I've ever heard." The record was featured on several major year-end "Best of 2012" lists including Downbeat Magazine, WNYC Soundcheck's "Best Live Performances" and Daytrotter's "Best Sessions of 2012." Edmonson was featured on NPR an impressive five times that same year.

Texas native Edmonson grew up in Houston and sang in the local club scene in Austin for several years before self-releasing Take To The Sky in 2009.

A musical kinship developed from performing with fellow Texan Lyle Lovett led to a high-profile duet of the Christmas classic "Baby, It's Cold Outside," which the pair performed together on "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno."
