A welcome return to The Fire Station for much beloved American songwriter Beth Nielsen Chapman.

Beth Nielsen Chapman is an artist with many accolades to her name: mega-hit ‘This Kiss’, sung by Faith Hill, was ASCAP’s 1999 Song of The Year, garnered a Grammy nomination and Nashville NAMMY’s 1999 Songwriter of the Year.

Beth also received a special award by The Alabama Music Hall of Fame and was the recipient of The Distinguished Artist Award from the Alabama State Council on the Arts in 2009 and in October of 2016, Beth was inducted into the Songwriter’s Hall of Fame, one she considers to be the highest honour she’s ever received. In 2019 Beth was invited to become an Ambassador for the Buddy Holly Educational Foundation.

Recently Beth’s collaboration with her friend Olivia Newton John was included on Olivia – Just The Two of Us – a special collection released to celebrate Olivia’s career. Their song 'Stone In My Pocket', which originally appeared on 2016’s ‘Liv On’ - Olivia’s album with Beth and Amy Sky - is part of 17-track album celebrating Olivia’s duets. Other artists featured include Dolly Parton, Mariah Carey, Barry Gibb, John Travolta, Sir Cliff Richard and more.

Her most recent album CrazyTown, charted at Number One on the Official UK Country Chart. The record won press support from Record Collector, The Independent, Maverick, AmericanaUK and RnR Magazine among many other titles, while receiving radio coverage from Ken Bruce and Bob Harris on their respective shows on BBC Radio 2, as well as BBC Radio 4 and Radio Scotland.

Following the album’s release, Beth embarked on a 22-date tour of the UK including to Sunderland, receiving glowing reviews for her performances from Louder Than War, God Is In The TV and The Arts Desk. We are delighted to welcome her back for this special summer show.
