 Jim Lauderdale, host of Music City Roots; Andrew Peterson; musician Ron BlockNashville, TN -- Dove-nominated singer/songwriter and award winning author Andrew Peterson took the stage last night at the summer season opener of the highly acclaimed program Music City Roots. Peterson was the final segment of the evening and received thunderous applause for his performance that included legendary band members Stuart Duncan, Andy Gullahorn, Ron Block, and James Gregory. Andrew and his band then joined in the jam session finale with all performers from the show. Music City Roots is aired live on Nashville’s alternative rock station, Lightning 100.

More recently he’s established himself as the grassroots facilitator of an online literary and songwriting community (www.RabbitRoom.com) and an emerging fantasy novelist as well (The Wingfeather Saga). But it’s still ultimately that sense of rootedness that listeners, readers and fans seem to respond to most deeply—because Andrew’s songs (and books) remind us again and again of simple, solid things like love and friendship and hope and redemption and beauty and how our stories were meant to be shared, and how the darkness will not always hold sway, and how we, being human, need to hear those things over and over again, because otherwise we become disconnected from the very stories we’re living in. All of which brings us, in a roundabout way, to our real starting point, because somehow, Andrew Peterson’s new, twelve-song project, Counting Stars (produced by Ben Shive, with Andy Gullahorn) manages to do all that without ever leaving home.
