The CMA Songwriters Series will return to the UK for its 10th European show on Thursday, March 10, 2016 at indigo at The O2 in London. Celebrating the craft of storytelling through song and the stories behind Country Music’s greatest hits, this CMA Songwriters Series will feature Charles Esten, Shane McAnally, Lori McKenna, Ashley Monroe, and Charlie Worsham.
Launched in 2005, the CMA Songwriters Series will enter its 12th year in 2016. In 2012, the Series made its European debut with shows in London, Dublin, and Belfast. The Series returned the following year with shows taking place in Ireland, London, and Paris. Since 2014, the CMA Songwriters Series has returned annually to London as part of County to Country, the three day Country Music festival at The O2 in London featuring an outstanding line-up of Country Music’s biggest stars.
Performing this year are Esten, one of the stars of the popular ABC Television Network series “Nashville” playing the role of Deacon Claybourne; McAnally and McKenna, two of Country Music’s hottest songwriters — with McAnnally co-writing most of Kacey Musgraves’ songs and McKenna currently best known for co-writing the CMA Award-winning “Girl Crush” for Little Big Town; Monroe, who is a critically-acclaimed singer/songwriter and one third of the Pistol Annies with Miranda Lambert and Angaleena Presley; and Worsham, who paid his dues as a session musician and singing on demos, but is now a rapidly rising star who’s been touring with Lambert and Taylor Swift.
