The Grammy nominated singer-songwriter from Nashville calls Hello Cruel World her "most close-to-the-bone work, written at a time when I felt absolutely fearless about telling the truth."

The title is a pun on the famed exit line a joke that, like the lovely melodies and deliciously textured arrangements framing these 11 songs sweetens this captivating music spun from a year of turmoil. Peters is of course joined by a cast of top musicians including Will Kimbrough, Vicktor Krauss, Barry Walsh and a guesting Rodney Crowell.
