Note from Gretchen about this recording…
“I had lost my mom just two weeks prior to singing this song on this particular evening, and I don’t think I’ve ever felt it more keenly. I was wearing her ring on the day she died. I’ve had it on ever since.”
Listen to the full NY Artists Collective Episode featuring Gretchen Peters where she talks about “The Boy From Rye” from her latest album here.
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 country’s upper echelon of contemporary composers.” – People Magazine
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-song- writers of all time. Her latest album, Dancing With The Beast, was released on May 18, 2018.
