Gretchen Peters - The Show

2022 marks the 25th year since Gretchen Peters first set foot on a UK stage. The release of her debut album The Secret of Life, championed by beloved BBC Radio 2 presenters Terry Wogan and Bob Harris, sparked what has turned out to be an enduring relationship with her UK fans and an equally long-lived touring career in the UK.

Inducted into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2014, 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 song “Independence Day”, recorded by Martina McBride, won a CMA Song of the Year award in 1995. She has been nominated for 2 Grammys (“Independence Day/Martina McBride, “You Don’t Even Know Who I Am”/Patty Loveless), a Golden Globe (“Here I Am”/Bryan Adams), and numerous other awards. “If Peters never delivers another tune as achingly beautiful as ‘On A Bus To St. Cloud,'” People Magazine wrote, “she has already earned herself a spot among country’s upper echelon of contemporary composers.” Her 2015 album, ‘Blackbirds’ was awarded International Album of the Year and Song of the Year by the UK Americana Association. In 2015, The Telegraph named her one of the greatest 60 female singer-songwriters of all time. In 2021 she was awarded The Poets Award by the Academy of Country Music.

To mark this milestone, she is releasing a live album, recorded while on tour in the UK in 2019 with her band and an all-female Scottish string quartet. The Show: Live from the UK will be released 19 August 2022.

“feels like a you-had-to-be-there retrospective of Peters’ illustrious career to date, framed with new-but-familiar arrangements focused on letting her songwriting shine.” – Entertainment Focus

“anyone fortunate enough to have seen Peters live will already be well aware that her vocals on stage are always pitch perfect and this album fully captures the artist at her emotive and captivating best. An album to be savoured and memories of gigs past rekindled by any Gretchen Peters devotees or a fantastic introduction to an immense talent for the uninitiated.” – Americana UK
