As singer-songwriters and writers of music criticism, Eric Brace and Peter Cooper have seen the world of country music from both sides of the stage.

The duo first met in Nashville in 2004, where Cooper was a longtime music writer for the Nashville Tennessean. Brace, a former music and arts culture columnist for the Washington Post, had recently moved to Nashville along with his band, Last Train Home. The two quickly became friends, sharing influences and a love of country music. Their friendship led to their first collaboration, 2009's "You Don't Have to Like Them Both." That record reached the top 10 of the Americana charts, and featured not only Brace and Cooper originals, but also material by other songwriters including Kris Kristofferson and Todd Snider.

On their second release, "Master Sessions," from 2010, the duo assembled a fine backing band which included legendary steel guitarist Lloyd Green, Pat McInerney, of Nanci Griffith's Blue Moon Orchestra, and upright bassist Dave Roe, who played with Johnny Cash. Once again, they performed not only their own songs, but also paid homage to their influences and idols, such as Tom T. Hall and John Hartford.

After a foray into the world of children's music with the production of 2011's Grammy-nominated "I Love: Tom T. Hall's Songs of Fox Hollow," Brace and Cooper have now returned to grown-up music with their latest release, "The Comeback Album." Known for their fine musicianship and excellent harmonies, they also bring a sharp sense of humor to their live performances.
