Gretchen Peters

Gretchen Peters


For two decades, GRETCHEN PETERS has been one of Nashville's most beloved and respected artists. '_If Peters never delivers another tune as achingly beautiful as "On A Bus To St. Cloud"_' People Magazine wrote, _'she has already earned herself a spot among country's upper echelon of contemporary composers._' Inducted into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame in October 2014 by singer-songwriter Rodney Crowell, who called her '_both a songwriter and a poet (who) sings as beautifully as she writes_' and said her song _The Matador_, '_moved me so greatly, I cried from the soles of my feet_'. Peters has accumulated accolades as a songwriter for artists as diverse as Etta James, Bonnie Raitt, The Neville Brothers, Patty Loveless, George Strait, Bryan Adams and Faith Hill. Her 2015 album, _Blackbirds_, debuted at #1 on the UK Country chart and in the top 40 UK pop chart, and was awarded International Album of the Year and Song of the Year.  In 2015, The Telegraph named her one of the greatest 60 female singer-songwriters of all time. Her new album, as yet untitled, is due for release in May 2018.
