Gretchen Peters – The Night You Wrote That Song: The Songs of Mickey Newbury
Format: CD
Label: Proper Records – Bertus
Releasedatum: 19 juni 2020

‘The Night You Wrote That Song: The Songs of Mickey Newbury‘ was recorded at the historic Cinderella Studios, where Newbury recorded his legendary albums of the late 1960’s/early 1970’s: ‘Looks Like Rain’, ‘Frisco Mabel Joy’ and ‘Heaven Help The Child’.

A lifelong devotee of Mickey Newbury’s albums as well as his songwriting, Gretchen Peters chose to record his songs in stripped-down fashion at the same studio where the original magic happened. Guests on the album include Buddy Miller, studio founder and legendary guitarist Wayne Moss (Roy Orbison, Bob Dylan, Linda Ronstadt), Country Music Hall of Famer and renowned harmonica player Charlie McCoy (Bob Dylan, Johnny Cash, Elvis Presley), Will Kimbrough, Barry Walsh and more.
