Hailed by many as one of Nashville?s best contemporary songwriters, Gretchen Peter's intelligent and introspective songs have been covered by pop, country, blues and folk artists all over the world. She possesses a rare ability to drive a strong point, yet capture it eloquently in song. That ability has won Peters two Grammy nominations for the heart-wrenching Patty Loveless hit, ?You Don?t Even Know Who I Am,? and Martina McBride?s award-winning recording of ?Independence Day", a blunt look at domestic violence. She has sold millions of records over the past decade, as stars Faith Hill, Bonnie Raitt, Martina McBride, Etta James, The Neville Brothers, George Strait, Trisha Yearwood, Bryan Adams, Patty Loveless, Billy Ray Cyrus, Pam Tillis, Neil Diamond and a host of others have covered her songs.
As an artist, Gretchen has regularly toured in the UK, Ireland and Europe to sold-out crowds, and with the Curb Records, Ltd. reissue of her first two albums, THE SECRET OF LIFE and GRETCHEN PETERS (both newly re-mastered with bonus tracks), her music is again widely available.
Gretchen was nominated in 2003 for a Golden Globe award for her work on the DreamWorks animated film, ?Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron?, and her multi-award winning "Independence Day" was recently included in CMT's list of The Top 100 Greatest Songs in Country Music.
2005 sees the release of a new single and album to coincide with the tour
