The Petersens release all-gospel album, “Homesick for a Country”

BRANSON, Mo. – August 9, 2019 – The award-winning bluegrass band, The Petersens, announces the release of their first all-gospel album, “Homesick for a Country,” on August 9.


“Homesick for a Country” is a compilation of the most loved and requested gospel songs The Petersens have performed at their Sunday gospel show at the Little Opry Theatre over the past two years.


“While we love singing fun bluegrass songs, there is something special about gospel songs,” said Ellen Petersen, director of marketing and band banjo player and vocalist. “Singing words that we believe and watching God use this music to open people’s hearts and bring them hope and encouragement is a truly special experience.”


Shortly following the release of “Homesick for a Country,” The Petersens will travel to Finland to play at the American Bluegrass and Gospel Festival on August 17, followed by their fourth Irish tour from August 21-26.


The Petersens will return to Branson in time to play at the Southern Gospel Festival at Silver Dollar City on August 29 and will resume their regular performance schedule at the Little Opry Theatre: their bluegrass show at 2 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays, and their gospel show at 2 p.m. on Sundays.


“Homesick for a Country” is available for pre-sale on iTunes, Spotify, and prior to its release on August 9. For more information about The Petersens or to book tickets, please visit or call (417) 335-4832.
