CMA partnered with CMT Canada to film a special CMA Songwriters Series presentation that will air as a one-hour broadcast on the channel this fall, as well as a syndicated radio special.
The taping took place Wednesday night in Toronto at The Great Hall, a historic venue located in the thriving music and arts district of Toronto’s Queen Street West. This is the first time CMA and CMT Canada have partnered to present a television event.
Artists and songwriters Kristian Bush, Deric Ruttan, Ron Sexsmith, and Josh Turner performed during the celebration of songs and scribes, which was filmed in front of an exclusive invite-only audience of industry movers and Country Music super fans.
The CMA Songwriters Series has been presenting the very best of Country Music’s songwriters, whose hits are known worldwide, since 2005. CMA Songwriters Series shows are intimate presentations where songwriters can exhibit their craft and share many of the stories behind the songs they have penned.
The expansion of the CMA Songwriters Series to Canada marks a growing interest in the CMA Songwriters Series internationally as the series builds on previous shows in Dublin, London, and Paris as CMA seeks to recognize and recruit Country Music fans globally.
