About The Book
Marshall Chapman knows Nashville. A musician, songwriter, and author with nearly a dozen albums and a bestselling memoir under her belt, Chapman has lived and breathed Music City for over forty years. Her friendships with those who helped make Nashville one of the major forces in American music culture are genuine and heartfelt, her insights unsurpassed. In her new book, They Came to Nashville, the reader is invited to see Marshall Chapman as never before: as music journalist extraordinaire.
Here Chapman captures the personal stories of musicians who have shaped the modern history of music in Nashville, from the mouths of the artists themselves. Their tribulations and triumphs are revealed against the backdrop of a forever-evolving Music City, as Chapman sits down with icons like Kris Kristofferson and Emmylou Harris, new stars like Miranda Lambert, and a dozen other top names to ask what brought each of them to Nashville and what inspired them to persevere.
The book culminates with Chapman’s heroic and hilarious attempt to schedule a proper interview with original Outlaw Willie Nelson. Instead, she’s brought along on Willie’s raucous 2008 tour and winds up on stage with him in Beaumont, Texas, singing “Good Hearted Woman.”
They Came to Nashville reveals the daily struggles facing newcomers to the music business — and the promise awaiting those willing to fight for their dream.
