Editors’ Notes Gretchen Peters is a Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame member who’s been called “the natural successor to Lucinda Williams” in the British press. It’s a touch funny, considering Peters has been writing and recording for more than 20 years. For the follow-up to her GRAMMY®-nominated Hello Cruel World album, Peters unleashes Blackbirds, another intense song cycle that features guests Jerry Douglas, Jason Isbell, Jimmy LaFave, Will Kimbrough, Kim Richey, and Suzy Bogguss. Songs such as “Everything Falls Away,” “The House on Auburn Street,” and “Pretty Things” (which recalls Joni Mitchell’s “For the Roses”) are deep, powerful experiences that stay with you.
