Nashville's Beth Nielsen Chapman Delivers Her Anthemic Reaction To The Me Too Movement Ahead Of Date In Sussex

Two-time Grammy nominee Beth Nielsen Chapman returns to Sussex on the back of the release of her bluesy new single Hey Girl, her first new music in over four years, and the first taste of her upcoming 15th album, CrazyTown.

With a career spanning nearly 40 years, Beth's new track is an anthemic reaction to the Me Too movement, a song Beth calls her "celebratory shout out to our sisters making their way in the world."

Beth Nielsen Chapman: 

"We were talking about the capacity for survival and overcoming the challenges that are part of being in the world as a female, balancing strength and vulnerability.


"As the writing of the song progressed, we touched on feeling lost, being taken advantage of, and navigating one"s safety and the experience of not being taken seriously."
 
Inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2016, Nashville based, Beth  has released fourteen solo albums and written seven number one hits and songs recorded by the likes of Bonnie Raitt, Willie Nelson, Bette Midler, Elton John and Neil Diamond. 

It's been four years since her last album, Hearts of Glass: 
 
"'CrazyTown' is a collection of songs that reflect all the twists and turns of life, especially reflective of this wild ride we have all been living through. 

"I'm looking forward to hitting the road with this new music finally seeing the light of day."

Beth Nielsen Chapman plays De La Warr Pavilion, Bexhill, on Saturday 29th October 2022. CLICK HERE for tickets.
