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', she has already earned herself a spot among the country's upper echelon of contemporary composers.” - People Magazine
Gretchen was 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 number one 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.
