Gretchen Peters “Elegant, touching and articulate.” – Bob Harris, BBC Radio 2 “Beautiful, brave and poetic, ‘The Matador’ literally inspires me to tears. Hand over my heart.” – Rodney Crowell Although an accomplished writer whose songs have been hits for others – including “Independence Day” for Martina McBride, which won CMA Best Country Song – Peters has never wanted to decide between singer and songwriter. So she has the best of best worlds: A string of powerful solo recordings. And a slew of her songs recorded by great singers such as Pam Tillis, Trisha Yearwood, Patty Loveless, Neil Diamond, George Strait and Etta James.
