“People in their twenties are not ageist the way my generation was”

I interviewed Nashville singer-songwriter, Gretchen Peters, a few months back when she was touring the UK promoting her newest album, Hello Cruel World. One of the topics we talked about was younger people being into older music in a more unrestrained way than perhaps previous generations. Why? Gretchen told me it was partly because: “People in their twenties are not ageist the way my generation was” and from what she can tell, “these kids are listening to the music and responding to it on an honest level”.  Read about this, her take on being a woman in the music industry and other topics, in the whole interview here at online music magazine, The Girls Are.
