VALPARAISO | Legendary Nashville songwriter Gretchen Peters makes her second appearance on the Chicago Street Theatre's stage on Sept. 8.
Peters, who has written hit songs for Trisha Yearwood, Bryan Adams, Pam Tillis, Neil Diamond, George Strait, Etta James, The Neville Brothers and, most famously, "Independence Day" for Martina McBride, is an accomplished singer/songwriter in her own right.
Her most recent album, "Hello, Cruel World" has achieved international acclaim and received several awards for "Best Americana" album. Peters comes from a folk/rock background and writes songs that evoke strong emotional responses from those who hear them.
Tickets are on sale now. Reserved seating is $25, and the special VIP couch seats, which include a photo op with Peters and a souvenir 8x10 print of that photo after the concert, are $50.
