Gretchen Peters - Dancing with the Beast

On May 18th, Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter Gretchen Peters will release her new album, Dancing with the Beast. As she did with her CMA Award-winning single “Independence Day,” Peters puts female characters at the fore of Dancing with the Beast, from teenage girls to old women. This is speaks to Peters’ longtime interest in giving complex voices and stories to the women she illustrates in her music, rather than any transient political reaction. Peters has established herself as both a talented performer and in-demand songwriter, writing songs for Martina McBride, Etta James, Trisha Yearwood, Patty Loveless, George Strait, Anne Murray, Shania Twain, and Neil Diamond.
