CMT to Surprise Unsuspecting Fans With Secret Concerts from Country Music’s Biggest Stars


Country music fans across America should keep their eyes and ears open as CMT today announced it will produce a pair of “Instant Jam” concert specials from two of the genre’s hottest stars.  The free concerts will take place in the next few weeks, in cities yet to be revealed and in venues with capacities of only a few hundred people, allowing fans the opportunity to get up-close and personal with their favorite superstar acts for a truly once-in-a-lifetime concert experience. For those not fortunate enough to score tickets to the shows, CMT will bring to life the excitement and energy around the big reveals, and offer front-row seats to the high-energy performances when the “CMT Instant Jam” specials premiere late summer and early fall.

Each episode of “Instant Jam” features live performances and captures all the excitement and energy as artists reveal to fans how to score tickets to an exclusive show in their area, while giving a behind-the-scenes look at the hours leading up to their concert. Previous “CMT Instant Jams” include Kenny Chesney, who played a pop-up show for college students in Athens, Georgia and Florida Georgia Line, who delivered a surprise performance in a small club in Nashville.


CMA Songwriters Series Partners with CMT Canada for Special TV Event


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.
