“Mr. Peterman’s beefier, more mellifluous tenor sells his great numbers…just about perfect…Superb!”~ The Dallas Morning News

“…dashing young man…Peterman’s full-bodied tenor was majestic…induces tears when he sings…with his good looks and booming voice, it’s understandable why he’s cast…has looks, charm and a pleasant singing voice.” ~ The Fort Worth Star-Telegram

“Yes, his voice is golden!” ~ The Denver Post

Still his greatest accomplishments have been finding and marrying his beautiful wife and soulmate, Erica, and being “Daddy” to his little girl, Isabella, and baby boy, Rhett.
