Drive it to the Chevy dealer for service.

REMOVE DRUM, THERE MAY BE TWO SMALL THREADED HOLES IN THE DRUM. FIND TWO BOLTS THAT WILL SCREW IN THE HOLES AND TURN ONE TURN IN EACH BOLT TILL YOU JACK THE DROM OFF ~ NO JOKE, THEY ARE CALLED JACKING HOLES. I CAN NOT REMEMBER THE BOLT SIZE, BUT I WOULD GUESS 8MM

This question needs to more specific. Disc or drum? Front or back?

Your rear brakes (drum) are probably so worn out that the shoes are trying to rotate with the drum and lock up. There is an adjuster inside the drum & you might can tighten the shoes, but if they are that worn out, then replace the brake shoes.

It sounds like your brakes are grabbing, which is often caused by oil, grease or brake fluid on the brake shoes or drums. Take the brake drum off and if you find any contamination on the lining or the drum use brake cleaner to remove it.
