Twice Grammy-nominated and CMA Song Of The Year winner for the groundbreaking “Independence Day” (Martina McBride), Gretchen Peters has cut her own artistic path, touring continually in both North America and the UK and Europe, and releasing nine critically acclaimed albums on the way. Born in New York and raised in Colorado, the 25 year Nashville resident has accumulated accolades as a songwriter for artists as diverse as Etta James, Trisha Yearwood, Bonnie Raitt, The Neville Brothers, Patty Loveless, George Strait, Bryan Adams and Faith Hill. Her latest album, Hello Cruel World (2012), landed in the top 5 on the US Americana chart, and maintained the #1 position for a record-breaking 2 months on the EuroAmericana chart. Described by NPR's All Things Considered as "the album of her career,” Hello Cruel World appeared in numerous Best of 2012 lists including No Depression, AllMusic.com and Performing Songwriter. Peters was nominated for the Nashville Songwriters’ Hall Of Fame in 2011 and 2012. Of her music, the Associated Press said, “this is not jukebox music - the stuff that exists to fill in the pauses in conversation. This IS the conversation.”
