For the last 25+ years, Gretchen Peters is an award winning singer-songwriter: one CMA award, two UK Americana Association awards (and another nomination), two Grammy nominations, one Golden Globe nomination, one Academy of Country Music nomination ... the list goes on.
Gretchen has released 15 albums, and she is one of the most respected songwriters in Nashville; her songs have been recorded by artists including Etta James, Bonnie Raitt, The Neville Brothers, Martina McBride, George Strait, Bryan Adams, Faith Hill, Shania Twain and others.
And for the last several years, Gretchen has also been part of the part time project Three Women and the Truth with MCC friends Mary Gauthier and Eliza Gilkyson (along with the occasional "fourth woman" Jaimee Harris). We got to see that trio in Austin about a year ago, and it was one of the most inspiring concerts we've ever seen.
Our first chance to see Gretchen was at a house concert in Austin, so we're especially excited to give you all that same chance.
Tiffany Williams is a native of Eastern Kentucky. She is a coal miner's daughter, granddaughter, and great-granddaughter who moved to Nashville a few years ago to pursue a career in music and writing. And just a few weeks ago, she left the safety net of her day job to pursue her dreams full-time.
Tiffany contacted us last spring about hosting a concert for her, and we immediately fell in love with her music. We got a chance to meet her at a house concert performance in Virginia last spring, and have gotten to know her a bit over the past few months. Tiffany writes beautiful, image-filled songs, and sings beautifully. This is a remarkably talented singer-songwriter who is just getting started in her career, and we think you'll love Tiffany's music as much as we do.
Her debut EP, When You Go, released January 18, 2019, features five tracks written by Tiffany and performed simply, with two guitars. An EP full of "extraordinary songs about ordinary life" ...

All the songs were impressive, but the title track from her EP was extraordinary. It dissected the push-and-pull of a mountain home—how it pushes you away to better opportunities, how it pulls you back with its memories. “I cursed this place when I was young,” Williams knowingly sang, “for cursing me with a broken tongue and hiding the horizon from my view. But these days I keep thinking of the whose shoulders block the sun and people who speak music like I do.” Tiffany delivers heart-worn songs with a room-silencing, angelic alto that takes listeners on an authentic journey of longing, alienation, and undeniable beauty.
