Star rating: *****
The new album release by Nashville-based singer/songwriter Gretchen Peters, co-produced by Peters, Doug Lancio and Barry Walsh, is bookended by two versions of the title song Blackbirds, co-written by Peters and Ben Glover, the first of three collaborations with the Glenarm, Northern Ireland-born singer/songwriter. In between, the standard of song writing remains top shelf, with a handful of Peters originals together with a gorgeous David Mead song Nashville and a further collaboration with Matraca Berg and Suzy Bogguss Black Ribbons. Fine company indeed.
