Having had a great deal of success with her writing and singing over the past number of years with 'THE JOURNEY' featuring a few of her recorded songs. For example, the song, 'I ONLY SEE YOU' has been recorded eleven times by artists in, England (1), USA (3), Australia (1), and New Zealand (6). 'IN THE ARMS OF A MEMORY' has had similar coverage and in 1994 was a top ten hit in Australia as recorded by Brian Letton and helped propel him to the Tamworth Golden Guitar Male Vocal of the year final in that year.

Rajon records have just re-released some of Ginny's tracks in New Zealand and Australia on the boxed set, 'The Great Kiwi Country'. In the liner notes for 'THE JOURNEY' Walt Trott, (editor AFM'S Nashville Association of Musicians newspaper) writes; Sweet and unassuming, Ginny Peters is a gifted poet with a guitar, one who possesses a great generosity of spirit and flair for expressing the simple things of life with a tendertwist. Truly her songs have heart, an essential of any good country ballad, exemplified by the title track, peeressly showcased by Nashville's, Kimberly Bibb-Marrs. 'THE JOURNEY' is an excellent round-up of songs penned by a New Zealand country music pioneer and definitely belongs in your CD collection (and mine). Meanwhile, for visionary Ginny Peters 'The Journey' continues. Walt Trott, author, 'The Honky Tonk Angels' biography Kitty Wells and Johnnie and Jack.
