Gretchen Peters Pays Tribute to Major Musical Influence via ‘The Night You Wrote That Song: The Songs of Mickey Newbury’ (album review)
Here’s an excerpt from a new review of The Night You Wrote That Song: The Songs of Mickey Newbury from Glide Magazine:
Peters continues to make exquisite recordings.This writer admires her artistry so much that initially an album of covers was disappointing news.Yet, in true Peters style this holds up as well as her originals efforts.She says it this way,“…And in the back of my mind, I hoped that this project would inspire my own writing.And it did.These are inspiring songs…My ultimate goal was to create new Mickey Newbury fans.I wanted to shine a light on him.” Yes, she went far beyond accomplishing that goal.She not only captured every drip of emotion in his lyrics but stunningly transformed his songs.
