Peterson’s earliest recollections are of music, as he grew up in a musical household in Colorado. Her manager, Dick Linke, saw Peterson performing at a Universal Music Group Capitol Records convention in 1954. He persuaded her to travel to New York after hearing her voice. After graduating from high school in 1958, Peterson and her family vocal group recorded “It’s The Most Happy Sound” before disbanding. Peterson became a member of the Ernie Mariani Trio (later renamed Margaret Ann and the Ernie Mariani Trio). When she played in resort places like Las Vegas, Lake Tahoe, and Reno, she was surrounded by Frank Sinatra and the Rat Pack. Director Bob Sweeny and producer Aaron Ruben of The Andy Griffith Show discovered her on those travels.
