Buy Tickets Beth Nielsen Chapman

On Beth Nielsen Chapman’s new release, “Uncovered” she rolls out a batch of premium songs she’s written but never recorded that have already been hits or covered 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 was trying to be.”  It’s been a crazy few months pulling it together....but the universe seems to have been cooperating beautifully.
Recorded in Scotland, Wales and her own “Treehouse” studio in Nashville, “Uncovered”  features some amazing guest appearances including legendary guitarist Duane Eddy on “Shine On Me” a song Beth wrote with Waylon Jennings, which will also feature background vocals by Jessie Colter-Jennings; Vince Gill duets with Beth on “Here We Are” a # 1 hit she and Vince wrote for Alabama; Darrell Scott sings and plays on “Maybe That’s All It Takes” a stunning ballad about how to make love last, which was a hit for Don Williams; Pam Tillis sings on “Five Minutes” , Lorri Morgan’s first #1 hit; Amy Grant along with Ruth Trimble & Eilidh Pattersonsing on the stand out track “Pray” written with and featuring guitar instrumentalist extraordinaire Muriel Andersen , “Almost Home” , a Mary Chapin Carpenter single, was written by Chapin, Beth and longtime collaborator Annie Roboff. It features “Wine Women & Songstresses” Gretchen Peters, Suzy Bogguss and Matraca Berg on some rollicking background vocals. The Scottish sessions co-produced with Phil Cunningham, feature top grade musicians including Duncan Chisholm, John McCusker, James Mackintosh, Euan Burton, and Matheu Watson.  Recorded at Squiggle Studios in Harlech, Wales, legendary bassist and longtime sideman on Beth’s UK tours, former Fairport Convention member Maartin Allcock plays on several tracks. 
Chapman’s prowess at writing in a wide range of styles shines through on this collection. From the infectious pop sensibilities of “This Kiss” (Faith Hill)  and “Simple Things” (Jim Brickman)  to the strains of bluegrass and country in “Strong Enough To Bend (#1 for Tanya Tucker) and “Nothin’ I Can Do About It Now” (#1 for Willie Nelson), the true thread that runs through it all is a her great passion for the well written song.   It is also clear that she has a blast performing these songs, and has no trouble bringing them home and making them her own once again.
