CMA Songwriter Series Heads Back To Europe And The U.K. This Fall

The CMA Songwriter Series is returning to the U.K. and Europe this Fall following a successful tour last year. The series will head back overseas Oct. 8-22 with Kassi Ashton, Ashley Campbell, Chris DeStefano, Tenille Townes, Drake White and Charlie Worsham. The upcoming dates introduce Ashton, DeStefano and Townes to international audiences, while Campbell, White and Worsham will return following previous successful international tours and appearances at London’s C2C: Country to Country festival.

With Sweden known for its rich tradition of songwriting, the tour will also feature Sweden’s Platinum-selling country artist Jill Johnson, who joins the lineup in Stockholm and Oslo. Johnson is host of the Sveriges Television award-winning documentary series “Jills Veranda Nashville,” which invites Swedish artists to explore Nashville with Johnson.

“Presenting this very Nashville experience in an international setting not only makes for a magical evening, but it truly forges a deeper connection to the music for new audiences,” said Milly Olykan, CMA Vice President, International Relations and Development. “The artists on this tour represent a true cross section of country music and we’re honored to be part of their journey as they build their international base.”
