In her short career, Alabama songwriter Grace Pettis has amassed bragging rights to spare. She is the winner of many of the nation’s most prestigious songwriting contests, including Kerrville New Folk Contest and NPR's Mountain Stage NewSong Contest, where she also took “best song” honors. Last summer, she received a grant from the Buddy Holly Educational Foundation, enabling her to attend the Chris Difford Songwriting Retreat and to co-write new songs with award-winning, chart-topping songwriters. 

Grace’s self-released, fan-funded studio albums have garnered praise from critics, fans, and industry alike. Maverick Magazine enthusiastically endorsed her latest release, saying, “If you only buy one album this year, Two Birds is it!” Sirius XM Program Director, Mary Sue Twohy described Grace’s distinct, unaffected voice as a "wide open prairie, full of waving golden grains before menacing, dark thunderclouds.” 

Grace’s songs have been recorded by other esteemed artists, including former State Musician of Texas Sara Hickman and three-time Grammy-nominated blues artist Ruthie Foster. Ruthie Foster covered two of Grace’s songs on her spring 2017 release, "Joy Comes Back."

Pettis is currently planning the release of her third studio album, "A Little Noise," produced by Dan Barrett. She plays regularly with her band in Austin (Calloway Ritch on lead guitar, Kurt Rivett on bass, and Ryan Neubauer on drums) when she's not on the road.

Grace has also recently teamed up with award-winning performing songwriters BettySoo and Rebecca Loebe to form Nobody's Girl . Nobody's Girl embarks on a debut 20-city national tour in April of this year. The fledgling group has already been signed by Lucky Hound Music. An EP featuring original songs, produced by Michael Ramos, is expected this spring or fall. (www.nobodysgirlmusic.com)
