Michael Peterson

MICHAEL PETERSON is a recipient of the Distinguished Alumnus Award from Pacific Lutheran University and a veteran of more than 1,800 student assembly programs from 1983 through 1995. Labeled a slow learner as a child, Michael "fell forward" from grade to grade, surviving through the murder of his father and suicide of his stepfather to become a Who's Who High School football player and a three-year starter on Pacific Lutheran's first national championship team. After 12 years of encouraging students to follow their passions, he moved to Nashville to follow his dream of writing and performing music.

His talent and commitment have since established him as one of the premier artists in the music business. With encouragement from Larry Ransom as his coach, Michael became a Warner Brothers recording artist and was the top-selling new male artist in all of Country music in 1997 and 1998, selling over one million albums with Billboard hits like "From Here To Eternity" and "Drink Swear Steal And Lie." He has toured the world with some of the biggest stars in the business and has been nominated for numerous awards from the Country Music Association's Horizon Award to the industry's highest honor, The Grammy.
