Multiple Grammy nominee and CMA Song of the Year winner Gretchen Peters, who grew up in Colorado, has recorded a new album about the West. The album, a collaboration with acclaimed singer-songwriter Tom Russell, is called 'One To The Heart, One To The Head'. The pair made the album in four whirlwind days in Austin, TX, after Russell planted the seed of an idea with an email. Peters says, "When Tom suggested this collaboration it seemed unlikely to me; now it seems inevitable. As we were sifting through the songs for this record, I began to realize the extent to which growing up in the West shaped me, musically and otherwise. Living out west taught me to appreciate a certain kind of spare beauty which I tried to transmute into songs." "Gretchen Peters came out of Colorado listening to Bob Dylan and Mary McCaslin - she went on to become one of the most successful writers in Nashville - yet she maintained a poetic stance among the disposable country popsters in funny hats. She's also one of our great singers. I figured she should harken up her roots and turn toward western themes. . . and here it is. This record sounds like the West I long for ancient, whispering, parched, desolate, bushwhacked, half-drunk, windswept and crazy crazy with memorable ghosts." -Tom Russell
