Marshall Chapman, a Nashville songwriter who has had songs recorded by Sawyer Brown, Jimmy Buffett and Crystal Gayle, will appear in the upcoming film Mississippi Grind alongside actor Ryan Reynolds, according to The Tennessean. Chapman will portray Reynolds’ mother in the movie, which will begin shooting next month in New Orleans.

Chapman has previously worked with Tim McGraw and Gwyneth Paltrow on the project Country Strong; Chapman portrayed Paltrow’s manager in the movie.

“I have one scene, and, if it doesn’t end up on the cutting-room floor, it’ll be my longest-speaking scene to date,” Chapman says. “My character is a chain-smoking, seen-it-all blues singer in New Orleans, the mother of a drifter/gambler played by Ryan Reynolds.”
