Album Review: Gretchen Peters, ‘The Night You Wrote That Song: The Songs of Mickey Newbury’

Folk Alley posted Kelly McCartney’s review of The Night You Wrote That Song – here’s an excerpt:

…track after track, Peters and company take their time to let these compositions breathe deeply and fully. But just because the performances are intentionally languid doesn’t mean they’re at all lazy. Quite the opposite, actually. Take Peters’ approach to a single recurring line in “Wish I Was” — “a grain of sand is all I ever wanted to be” — she infuses it with all she has; she just does so gently, but no less potently.
