Little Big Town, Martina McBride, Hunter Hayes & MORE on Front & Center

LIttle Big Town

The critically-acclaimed concert series “Front and Center” and the Country Music Association have teamed up to present four all-new CMA Songwriters Series episodes set to air as part of “Front and Center’s” Spring season on public television (check local listings).

The shows will feature performances from some of the hottest names in Country Music including Brandy Clark, Bob DiPiero, Sara Evans, Hunter Hayes, Little Big Town, Martina McBride, and Charlie Worsham, who have collectively sold more than 20 million albums, won 12 CMA Awards, had 11 No.1 albums, and charted more than 30 No. 1 singles.

Along with a virtual who’s who of songwriters, the shows will be filmed from Marathon Music Works in Nashville on Dec. 1 and 2 (two each day).

Last season “Front and Center” announced its partnership with CMA and taped two shows: one program featured Lady Antebellum and the second was a special 10th Anniversary Celebration of the CMA Songwriters Series with Dierks Bentley. The episodes premiered last month as part of “The 48th Annual CMA Awards” celebration and will continue to air through the end of the year.

“CMA is extremely proud of our songwriters and their many contributions to the success of Country Music,” said Sarah Trahern, CMA Chief Executive Officer. “And we are thrilled to partner with ‘Front and Center’ again to shine a national spotlight on this important segment of our industry. It’s great knowing that we have a partner who truly appreciates the talent of Nashville’s creative community.”

“The reaction that we received as a result of our partnership with the CMA, and subsequently from the shows that we aired with Lady Antebellum and Dierks Bentley, was overwhelming,” said “Front and Center” Executive Producer Don Maggi. “The acceptance that ’Front and Center’ has received from the Nashville music community, and its fans, left no question that we should do even more for the forthcoming Spring season. Four NEW CMA Songwriters Series shows, with some of the best that Country Music has to offer – a clear victory for the fans that will get to see these artists in a one-of-a-kind setting.”

Evans and McBride will take the stage on Monday, Dec. 1st (6:30 PM/CT), followed by a performance by Hayes (9:30 PM/CT).

Little Big Town will open the performances on Tuesday, Dec. 2nd (6:30 PM/CT), followed by DiPiero and Friends: Clark, McAnally, and Worsham (9:30 PM/CT).

CMA Award winners Evans and McBride will join musical forces for a CMA Songwriters Series “Ladies Night Out.”

The final taping on Tuesday will be Bob DiPiero and Friends. DiPiero was instrumental in the creation of the CMA Songwriters Series back in 2005. A member of the Songwriters Hall of Fame, he has notched 15 No. 1 hits including “Little Rock” (recorded by Reba), “Blue Clear Sky” (recorded by George Strait), and “Southern Voice” (recorded by Tim McGraw). He will be joined by 2014 CMA Song of the Year winners, Clark and Shane McAnally as well as Warner Music Nashville recording artist Worsham.
