Since a conference in Nashville wouldn’t feel quite right without a little live music, CASANA is proud to announce two-time Grammy nominated singer-songwriter Beth Nielson Chapman is performing before the keynote address at the 2014 National Conference on Childhood Apraxia of Speech!
Beth has written songs for top artists including Bonnie Raitt, Emmylou Harris, Bette Midler, Elton John, Neil Diamond, Trisha Yearwood, Martina McBride, Amy Grant, Waylon Jennings, Faith Hill, Willie Nelson and many more. Her music has been heard on ER, Dawson’s Creek, Providence, Felicity and in movie soundtracks, including The Prince of Egypt, Message In A Bottle, The Rookie, Where The Heart Is and Practical Magic. The 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 award.
Among Beth’s own recordings, the groundbreaking Sand & Water, released following the death of her husband from cancer in 1994, was performed by Elton John on his 1997 U.S. tour in place of “Candle In The Wind” to honor the memory of Princess Diana. The Mighty Sky, a romping collection of songs about the wonders of astronomy earned a 2014 Grammy nomination for “Best Children’s Album.”
Her new release, Uncovered, is a collection of songs covered by other artists that she has never recorded herself.
