Goodbye, Little Rock and Roller is an inventive and original book from Nashville singer/songwriter Chapman, who uses twelve of her most resonant songs as entry points to many of her life's adventures. Not a memoir, but a map of the places Chapman's been and what went through her mind as she was traveling there, this book is funny and tender, warm and exuberant.

Nashville legend tells us about her first 40 years in Music City
"Raised a debutante in Spartanburg, South Carolina, singer-songwriter Marshall Chapman became a rocker at a time when women didn't pick up electric guitars. She is 'a living example,' one reviewer wrote, 'of the triumph of rock and roll over good breeding.' Goodbye, Little Rock and Roller uses twelve of Chapman's most resonant songs as launching pads for stories that take us where she's been and reveal what went through her mind while she was traveling there. From New Year's Eve in 1978 when Jerry Lee Lewis gave Chapman advice on how to live life to the time her black maid, Cora Jeter, took the seven-year-old to see Elvis, this book looks back on intimate rock-and-roll moments and memories of a South Carolina girlhood."
