Marshall Chapman (www.tallgirl.com) stopped by the WGWG for conversation and music.
From Spartanburg, SC, Marshall Chapman is an American singer-songwriter and author.
Chapman, the daughter of a cotton mill owner, was taken to an Elvis Presley concert in 1957 and says the experience changed her from a southern debutante to a nascent rock and roller. After graduating from Salem Academy in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, she went to Vanderbilt University in 1967.
Her songs have been recorded by such diverse artists such as Conway Twitty, Joe Cocker, Jimmy Buffett, Emmylou Harris, Wynonna, Jessi Colter, John Hiatt, Dion, Olivia Newton-John, Irma Thomas, and Ronnie Milsap. Her song “Betty’s Bein’ Bad” was a No. 1 hit for Sawyer Brown.
She has also been seen on the big screen in the Gweneth Paltrow film, Country Strong.
