Awkward Annie is the seventh studio album by Englishcontemporary folk musician Kate Rusby, released on 3 September 2007 on Pure Records. The album is the first to be produced by Rusby herself, following her split with husband and producer John McCusker.
Regarding her role as producer Rusby states that:
It wasn’t something that was planned, but the split from John two years ago has inevitably put a strain on our working relationship, and sadly meant that it wasn’t the right time for us to make a record together. So the best thing was to produce this record myself, it’s been a long and at times lonely road, but with help from [my brother] Joe we got there in the end. John still played on the record. He’s a brilliant musician and a great fella'.
