On Sunday August 11 Kathy Mattea will be back to guest host as we welcome the long-awaited return to Mountain Stage of songwriting great Beth Nielsen Chapman. Twice Grammy-nominated Nashville based, Beth Nielsen Chapman is a member of the Songwriters Hall of Fame. She has released thirteen solo albums and written seven #1 hits and songs recorded by Bonnie Raitt, Willie Nelson, Bette Midler, Elton John, Neil Diamond, Michael McDonald, Keb Mo’, Roberta Flack, Indigo Girls, & Faith Hill’s Mega-hit This Kiss, ASCAP'S 1999 Song Of The Year.
Hearts Of Glass, Beth’s newest album, riveting and sparse, is a powerful collection of songs that reach into the place within us where vulnerability meets strength which is often where Beth’s songs will take you, right into the center of the full beautiful dance of contradictions that inhabit love and life.
August 11 will mark Chapman’s sixth appearance on Mountain Stage since 1994.

Also appearing on August 11 will be the enchanting Carrie Newcomer, herself making her sixth appearance, and southern singer and songwriter Erin Rae.
Sunday September 29 we look forward to welcoming back The Steel Wheels, who are about to release their new record, Over The Trees. They last joined us in Harrisonburg, VA when we were the guests of our affiliate WMRA. Appearing for the first time together on Sept. 29 will be Kieran Kane and Rayna Gellert. Both of these accomplished roots music luminaries have appeared on the show in various formats, and we can’t wait to hear songs from their latest collaboration, When the Sun Goes Down.
