MICHAEL PETERSON

 "Certified People Mover"

Michael Peterson’s chart topping, country music classics "Drink Swear Steal & Lie" and "From Here To Eternity" helped make him Billboard magazines top selling new male artist and top new airplay artist in Country music in 1997-1998.

With over 2500 concert performances and keynotes in 19 countries during a unique career that spans over 30 years, Michael Peterson has had the good fortune to be:

• A million selling, Grammy nominated, Country music star with three consecutive, self penned #1 hits

• A top songwriter with the unusual good fortune to have had his songs recorded by Country, Rock, Pop and Gospel Hall of Famers

• A contributing author for 6 books, including the New York Times best selling "Chicken Soup For The Soul" series.

• The recipient of numerous distinguished public service awards including the prestigious Bob Hope “Spirit of Hope” medal from the USO following his 11 tours and over 150 performances for Service men and women deployed to Iraq, Afghanistan and South Korea

His national award winning High school assembly program TAG, You're It!™ and its follow up WHAT'S YOUR STORY?™ have inspired and equipped hundreds of thousands of young people and are considered among the finest transformational experiences available for students today.

As a continuation of his innovative contributions to public education, Michael, along with distinguished Military service Veteran, COL Jill Chambers U.S. Army (R) and world renowned children's author and illustrator Guy Gilchrist, have most recently created the unforgettably delightful children's book series "Little IsGood" captivating kindergarten through second grade students with relevant inspiring lessons based on the 7 pillars of Character education.

A co-founder of the WE ARE VETERANS™ Project, plans are well under way for Michael to host an all star cast of Gold medal winning Veteran performers and A-list entertainers in the nationally televised "WAVE ON OLD GLORY, WAVE ON" concert special. The broadcast will be followed by a 60-city tour from 2016 - 2018 raising money and awareness in support of Veterans and Military families.

The golden thread that connects this wide variety of projects and most often guides Michael's decisions about where to best invest his talents is simple:

"Great art drives emotion and emotion...drives action"
