Marshall Chapman House Concert 

When: Sat., Jan. 22 2011

Did you see Country Strong? No? Well, Marshall Chapman was singled out in an otherwise scathing New York Times review for her "small, vivid" part as Gwyneth Paltrow's road manager. Chapman, the reviewer noted, "is going strong at 62 with songs in which a woman can run 'on a tank full of burning desire' and not just despair." Chapman is a songwriter's songwriter, but she is also a journalist: Her latest book, They Came to Nashville, a volume of interviews and adventures with the likes of Willie Nelson, Kris Kristofferson and Emmylou Harris, is now out in bookstores. She's also collaborated with local literary lights Lee Smith and Jill McCorkle on a musical, Good Ol' Girls, and her songs have been covered by Jimmy Buffet, John Hiatt, Wynonna and Joe Cocker. She'll be playing tonight in Durham at a house concert, and you'll want to head down to Fearrington Village tomorrow at 2 p.m. to hear her discuss her book at McIntyre's.
