The CMA Songwriters Series traveled to the U.K. Thursday night (March 10) for a show at London’s indigo at The O2 to kick off the 2016 C2C (Country 2 Country) Festival. Charles Esten, Shane McAnally, Lori McKenna, Ashley Monroe, and Charlie Worsham took the stage to share the stories behind their hit songs.

The series made its European debut in 2012 with shows in London, Dublin, and Belfast, returning the following year with shows taking place in Ireland, London, and Paris.
