Chapman reads new book at Burke’s
By Corey Mesler
Nationally celebrated musician and songwriter, Marshall Chapman, will be at Burke’s Book Store on Thursday, December 9, from 5:30-6:30pm to read from and sign copies of her new book, They Came to Nashville ($25.00 hardcover, Vanderbilt U. Press.) The reading will begin at 6pm.
American music critic, Peter Guralnick, wrote, “Anyone who has ever seen her on stage knows that Marshall Chapman is a force of nature. But then anyone who has ever read her on the page can attest to the same force of impact.”
In They Came to Nashville, Marshall Chapman captures the personal stories of musicians who have helped shape the modern history of music. Their tribulations and triumphs are revealed against the backdrop of a forever evolving Music City.
Marshall Chapman came to Nashville in 1967 to attend Vanderbilt University and wrote her first song in 1973. Her songs have been recorded by Conway Twitty, Jimmy Buffett, and many others. She is a contributing editor for Garden & Gun and Nashville Arts magazines and author of Goodbye Little Rock and Roller, which was a finalist for the 2004 SEBA Book Award and Book Critics Circle Award.
