The CMA Songwriters Series began in New York City in 2005. Since then, it has continued to play in front of sold out crowds at New York’s Joe’s Pub. In 2009, CMA took this popular series to other markets including Chicago and Los Angeles. The Aug. 25 show will be the series’ Boston debut. No Shoes Radio, Chesney’s online radio station, is programmed by Kenny himself, and features music from Chesney’s audio catalog, including never-before-heard recordings, live concert broadcast, and random drop-ins from fans, plus many of his favorite songs. Included is everything from Bruce Springsteen and Dave Matthews to the Caribbean grooves of Bob Marley & The Wailers.

Official sponsor for the CMA Songwriters Series at the Royale Nightclub is Great American Country (GAC). Tickets for the sold-out Boston show were $75 for VIP seating and $45 for floor seats.
