Beth Nielsen Chapman To Make Grand Ole Opry Debut

Noted songwriter Beth Nielsen Chapman will make her Grand Ole Opry debut on April 14, adding another accolade to her performing career. 

Chapman will release her new album, Hearts of Glass, on April 27. The project, her 13th, marks her first collection since Chapman was inducted into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2016. On Hearts of Glass, Chapman has recorded her own versions of songs that were recorded by Willie Nelson (“If My World Didn’t Have You”) and Waylon Jennings (“Old Church Hymns & Nursery Rhymes”), as well as reworked versions of album cuts and several new compositions.

Chapman’s numerous songwriting credits include Faith Hill’s “This Kiss,” Martina McBride’s “Happy Girl,” Lorrie Morgan’s “Five Minutes,” Willie Nelson’s “Nothing I Can Do About It Now,” Tanya Tucker’s “Strong Enough to Bend,” and Trisha Yearwood’s “Down on My Knees,” among many others.

She will make multiple appearances in Nashville in the next few weeks, including the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum’s Songwriter Session (April 7), SESAC Presents: In the Round at The Bluebird Café (April 10), and the WMOT Finally Friday radio broadcast at the Nashville Palace (April 13).
