Our guest this week on Art of the Song is Grammy-nominated, Nashville singer-songwriter Gretchen Peters. She’s well known as the writer of the 1995 CMA Song of the Year, 'Independence Day’. We spoke with Gretchen about her 2018 release Dancing with the Beast.

From her bio: “Dancing with the Beast puts female characters at the fore, from teenage girls to old women, and intentionally so. With the 2017 Women's March and #MeToo movement as bookends to her writing, Gretchen knew that a feminist perspective would be the critical core of the record.”

Thousands of demonstrators gathered Saturday in Santa Rosa, Sonoma and Sebastopol to support women’s rights and to indulge in cathartic Trump bashing.  The events commemorated last year’s record-breaking women’s marches in the United States and worldwide.
