With the soul of a rockabilly, the guitar chops of heroes like Scotty Moore and the lyrical skills of a country master, Marshall Chapman remains one of the most respected talents in Nashville (and beyond).

With some 10 albums behind her, books and (who knows?) even a blossoming acting career, Chapman sounds fully focused on her latest release "Blaze of Glory." Starting off with "Love in the Wind," a romping duet with fellow Nashville outsider Todd Snider, Chapman displays her skills with country gospel (the beautiful "Not Afraid to Die"), swamp pop (the witty and cool "Let's Make Waves"), outlaw blues (the tough "I Don't Want Nobody"), meditative and honest ballads ("Beyond Words" and "Waiting for the Music") and even bluesy swing (a convincing cover of the warhorse "Blues Stay Away From Me").

What ties all of these songs together is Chapman's voice: singed at the edges but clear and muscular as always. She's always been an underrated singer and songwriter, but now at the age of 64, with nothing to prove, she proves once again why the tall girl from Spartanburg, S.C. is a treasure of American music.

"Blaze of Glory will be released on May 28, 2013 on Tall Girl Records.
