Grace Pettis: Songwriter’s Experience Mentor

Grace Pettis: Songwriter’s Experience Mentor

Grace Pettis, from Lookout Mountain, Alabama, has songwriting in her blood. The daughter of a poetry scholar and a troubadour, Grace comes by her love of words honestly. Her father, Pierce Pettis, is a critically acclaimed songwriter and performer who penned the Garth Brooks hit “You Move Me.” Grace’s brothers, Rayvon and George, are also songwriters and musicians. In her short career, Grace has already lived up to her birthright, winning numerous songwriting awards and garnering praise from critics, fans, and industry alike. What sets her apart in her talented family is her distinct, unaffected voice, described as a “wide open prairie, full of waving golden grains before menacing, dark thunder clouds” (Sirius XM Program Director, Mary Sue Twohy).

Grace partnered for a second time with producer Billy Crockett and Blue Rock Studio in 2012 to make her critically acclaimed “TWO BIRDS” album. Maverick Magazine featured a FIVE STAR review, touting “If you purchase only one album this year, TWO BIRDS is it!”

For Grace, the album was a success long before its release. Loyal fans contributed roughly $32,000 to its making. TWO BIRDS marked the culmination of years of writing, touring and surviving as an independent artist.
