Creative queen of the Nashville songwriting scene.
Her songs gain the aura of depth through homespun spirituality—an herbal tea–scented blend of Norman Rockwell and Deepak Chopra.

Beth Nielsen Chapman has written numerous hit songs for many top artists, including Bonnie Raitt, Emmylou Harris, Bette Midler, Elton John, Willie Nelson, Bettye LaVette, and many more—all while maintaining her own diverse recording career. Her stories and delivery illustrate music’s power to heal, and she weaves this theme into her songs, opening every heart to how resilience is fueled through creativity.
Chapman’s music has been heard on ER, Dawson’s Creek, Providence, and Felicity and on many movie soundtracks, including The Prince of Egypt, Message in a Bottle, The Rookie, and Practical Magic. She also wrote the megahit “This Kiss”; sung by Faith Hill, the song was ASCAP’s Song of the Year in 1999, garnered a Grammy nomination, and helped Chapman win Nashville NAMMY’s Songwriter of the Year award. In October 2016, Chapman was inducted into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame, which she considers the highest honor she has ever received.
