“Nashville’s songwriters are the best in the world and CMA is excited to showcase them, not only in the States, but overseas as well,” said Steve Moore, CMA Chief Executive Officer. “It’s great to see how this series has grown since it began in 2005. What started at Joe’s Pub in New York has expanded to other cities over the years. We have even taken the series overseas with shows in the U.K. and Ireland and we will be hitting Paris next month.”
