2014 not only marked the 10th anniversary of the CMA Songwriters Series, but also marked new heights in the growth of the popular series. In celebrating its 10-year anniversary, the Series has not only traveled from the Sundance Film Festival to London, but has also made its national television debut as part of a partnership to air the CMA Songwriters Series through public television’s “Front and Center.”

In December, the CMA Songwriters Series culminates its 10-year anniversary celebration in the venue where it all began when it returns to Joe’s Pub in New York City for a two-night event Dec. 3 and 4 with the writers who were part of those very first shows in 2005. Celebrating its decade-long run, the CMA Songwriters Series features songwriter and host Bob DiPiero performing alongside Radney Foster, Brett James, and Craig Wiseman. Tickets are on sale now and show times for both nights are 6:30 and 9:00 PM/ET.

In January of this year the CMA Songwriters Series kicked off its 10th Anniversary season with standing-room-only shows at the Sundance Film Festival featuring Brandy Clark, James, Chris Stapleton, and Lee Ann Womack.

Later in the year, a very special Songwriters Series that featured Sara Evans joined by songwriters Chris DeStefano, James, and Marcus Hummon plus surprise guest Gavin DeGraw played to a sold out audience in Nashville the night before “The 48th Annual CMA Awards.” Additionally, the series has performed shows in Paradise Island, Bahamas as part of the Atlantis Live Paradise Music Festival Presented by HGTV, as well as Austin, Chicago, New York, and London.

As part of the anniversary-year celebration, CMA partnered with public television’s critically-acclaimed concert series “Front and Center” to present two separate hour-long concert specials for the 2014 fall season. The shows, airing currently, feature the music of CMA Award winner Lady Antebellum as they are joined by special songwriter guests, and a special 10th Anniversary CMA Songwriters Series celebration with 2014 CMA Award winner Dierks Bentley. Bentley is joined by top songwriters Jim Beavers, Ross Copperman, James, and Jon Randall.

Throughout the last decade, the CMA Songwriters Series has been exposing fans across the country and the globe to the artisans who, through their craft, pen hits that touch the lives of millions of music fans. Since it began at Joes’ Pub in New York City in 2005, the CMA Songwriters Series has presented90 shows in 15 cities, including Austin, Boston, Belfast, Chicago, Dublin, London, Los Angeles, New York, Paris, Phoenix, and Washington, D.C. at the renowned Library of Congress.

The series has featured 138 of music’s most gifted storytellers who collectively have 75 CMA Song of the Year nominations.

Some of the artists that have been part of the series include Clint Black, Kix Brooks, Kenny Chesney, Billy Currington, Randy Houser, Miranda Lambert, Little Big Town, Patty Loveless, Ronnie Milsap, Kip Moore, David Lee Murphy, Gretchen Peters, Kellie Pickler, Darius Rucker, The Band Perry, Josh Turner, Carrie Underwood, Phil Vassar, and Chris Young.

Chris Young & Kidde Increase Fire Safety & Help Burn-Injured Firefighters

Kidde Fire Safety joined country music stars Chris Young and Kix Brooks and fire service leaders to offer their support to new campaigns that will help protect families and assist burn-injured firefighters. Kidde, a leading manufacturer of residential fire safety products, is a part of UTC Building & Industrial Systems, a unit of United Technologies Corp. (NYSE: UTX).

Kidde will donate 2,000 Worry-Free sealed-battery smoke alarms to fire departments in select cities along Young’s 2015 A.M. World Tour and will contribute $25,000 to sponsor Phoenix Society’s new Survivors Offering Assistance in Recovery (SOAR) program to support burned firefighters. Every year, approximately 100 firefighters die in the line of duty and thousands are injured. Knowing simple safety steps, such as replacing outdated smoke alarms and having an escape plan, can help families stay safer and help protect first responders. Kidde Worry-Free smoke alarms contain a sealed-in battery that lasts 10 years, the recommended life of a smoke alarm.

“One of my best friends recently became a firefighter, and the risk they take really hits home. I’m glad to be part of a cause that will help support first responders and local communities along my tour,” said Young.

The Phoenix SOAR program connects those recently injured with burn survivors and family members who can support their recovery. Started in 2003 with funding from Kidde, the program operates in 64 hospitals and burn centers across the country.

In 2013, the nonprofit organization partnered with the International Association of Firefighters Charitable Foundation and the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation (NFFF) to develop a version of Phoenix SOAR for burn-injured firefighters. Kidde is the new program’s inaugural sponsor.

“The purpose of Phoenix SOAR is simple: No survivor of a burn injury should feel alone,” said Amy Acton, executive director of Phoenix Society and a burn survivor. “Every year, 40,000 people are hospitalized with burn injuries, but firefighters have unique challenges. This program will enable them to get support from peers who know firsthand what they’ve experienced.”

Luis Nevarez, burn survivor and Tulare Fire Department (California) division chief, shared his experience at today’s event. Nevarez lost his left forearm to an electrical burn in 2002.

“I was back on a fire truck 364 days after my accident,” Nevarez said. “I was missing an arm, but my heart and my passion were there. As a Phoenix SOAR peer supporter, I want to inspire other burn survivors. I want someone to look at me and say, ‘Because of you, I didn’t give up!’”

“Kidde is committed to making products that help save lives and empowering families to take steps that will help keep them safe. Those steps also protect firefighters,” said Chris Rovenstine, vice president of marketing, Kidde. “We’re excited to expand our support of the Phoenix Society’s SOAR program and work with Chris Young to help communicate the importance of working smoke alarms.”

Kix Brooks, the 2013 CMA National Broadcast Personality of the Year and a radio spokesman for Kidde; Chief Ronald Siarnicki, executive director of NFFF; Tennessee State Fire Marshal Gary West; and National Association of State Fire Marshals President Butch Browning also attended.
