About Gretchen Peters

A singer and songwriter whose work is literate and easily relatable, Gretchen Peters has enjoyed a successful career as a recording artist, releasing a series of albums that have made her a cult heroine thanks to her clear, expressive voice, thoughtful lyrics, and way with a melody. Her recordings have earned her a devoted following, but plenty of folks are fans of her work and don't even know it -- she's a leading Nashville songwriter who has penned hits for George Strait, Trisha Yearwood, Pam Tillis, Bonnie Raitt, and Neil Diamond, among many others, and was inducted into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2014. Peters is one of the finest interpreters of her own songs, with 2007's Burnt Toast & Offerings and 2015's Blackbirds finding particular favor with critics, and she's a powerful live performer, as documented on the 2022 release The Show: Live from the U.K.
