June 27, 2022 – Nashville, TN – Grammy-nominated and CMA Award-winning recording artist Gretchen Peters has long been known for her songwriting. Folks like George Strait and Martina McBride cut her songs early on, and since then, she’s penned hits for the likes of Trisha Yearwood, Pam Tillis, Bonnie Raitt, and Neil Diamond, and was inducted into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2014. But, until you’ve heard Peters’ clear, expressive voice recite her own expertly-crafted melodies live on stage, you’re only getting half of the story. Luckily for longtime fans and curious onlookers, Peters has just announced a brand new live album, The Show: Live from the UK—out August 19th via Proper Music Group. Featuring 18 songs from Peters’ beloved catalog The Show marks her first release since 2020’s tribute to Mickey Newbury, The Night You Wrote That Song and her first live release since 2005’s Trio.

Culled from three performances from Peters’ 2019 Strings Attached Tour—April 19th at St. George’s, Bristol, UK; April 22nd at The De La Warr Pavilion, Bexhill-On-Sea, UK; and April 23rd at The Apex, Bury St. Edmunds, UK—The Show features Peters’ touring band—Barry Walsh (piano, vocals), Colm McClean (electric guitar, vocals), and Conor McCreanor (electric and upright bass, vocals—as well as an all-female, Scottish string quartet featuring Seonaid Aitken (violin), Amira Bedrush-McDonald (violin), Sarah Leonard (viola), and Alice Allen (cello). The resulting album 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.
