Beth Nielson Chapman is one of the great songwriters calling Nashville home, penning a string of songs that have earned other performers hits on both pop and country radio. Faith Hill’s #1 hit “The Kiss” Trisha Yearwood “Say You Will”, Willie Neilson “Ain’t Necessarily So” and Bette Midler “The Color of Roses” (to name a few). And Elton John was so moved by the title song of Beth’s 1997 album, “Sand and Water”, began performing the song in concert.
With all her success as a songwriter, Beth has always maintained her own solo recording and performing career. She has had several songs on the top of the Adult Contemporary and Triple A charts and has shared the stage with many well-known artists, including Bonnie Raitt and Neil Diamond. She was one of the featured performers on Lifetime TV’s 2nd Annual Women Rock Girls and Guitars, along with Emmylou Harris, Pat Benatar, Sheryl Crow and Shea Segar where her song “There’s a Light” was featured
Beth has two new projects that will “drop” in 2016
The first, is a collaboration between Beth, Olivia Newton-John and Amy Sky called “LIV ON”, an eleven-song collection intended for those who wish to transcend loss while walking a journey toward new-found meaning and hope.
This inspiring new project grew out of the three artists’ personal experiences with loss and illness, which they all survived to “LIV ON” and celebrate each day with a depth of gratitude.
Release date is June 10th, 2016
In September of this year Beth will release “Uncovered” a batch of premium songs she’s written but never recorded that have already been hits or covers by other artists. Most were top ten hits, seven of which topped the charts at #1.
This record could have been called “Recovered” except that the idea for this collection sprung out of her digging up songs for her pending boxed set called “Box of Songs”. The title, “UnCovered” was suggested by none other than Bob Harris. “Once I heard that name I knew exactly what this record needed to be.” It’s been a crazy few months pulling it together….but the universe seems to have been cooperating beautifully.
