Beth Nielsen Chapman (born on 14 September 1958 in Harlingen, Texas, U.S.) is an American singer-songwriter, mostly known for her numerous hits recorded by country and pop music performers.
In 1976, Beth played with a Rock & Pop group called "Harmony" in Montgomery, AL, effectively replacing Tommy Shaw who had just left to join Styx. She played acoustic guitar and piano as well as providing vocals for the group in a locally-famous bowling alley bar called Kegler's Kove and she has returned to play in the area on an infrequent basis ever since.
Beth's husband, Ernest Chapman, died of cancer in 1994. In 2000, Beth experienced her own battle with breast cancer. The song "Sand & Water" was written after Ernest's death; Elton John performed this song during his 1997 World Tour.
