Rock Singer. A native of Denton, Texas, Peterson was a Teen Idol of the 1960s who had hits with such memorable songs as "Tell Laura I Love Her," "Corrina, Corinna," "The Wonder Of You," and "Answer Me," among others. Peterson who retired from recording music in the late 1960s, later became a talented songwriter for other artists, especially throughout the 1970s.
