Chris Young And Gretchen Wilson to Take Part in CMA Songwriter Series
The CMA Songwriters Series is a win-win situation for songwriters and country music fans alike. For the songwriter the evening brings a chance to share the stories and inspiration that lie behind the song and for the fans, an opportunity to get up-close and personal with some of Nashville’s finest writing talents.
On Tuesday, February 15th, CMA Songwriters Series visits Club Nokia. This marks the second visit to Los Angeles since the series began seven years ago. 2010 New Artist nominee Chris Young and two-time CMA winner Gretchen Wilson are among the featured writers for 2011.
Wilson had this to say about being a songwriter:
To be called a songwriter is every bit as important to me as being called an artist. Country Music has always been about the song – about the story – and I’m excited to be a part of telling that story in LA with this incredible group of songwriters, though with this cast of characters, I think we can guarantee as much laughter as music!
Brett James, Victoria Shaw and Bob DiPiero will also join in on the festivities with DiPiero serving as host for the evening.
Young shared the same enthusiasm when talking about his part in the Songwriter Series:
As a performer l love being in a room full of fans that sing along to every word to every song I sing. As a songwriter, to be a part of the CMA Songwriter Series together with such talented writers as Brett James, Victoria Shaw, Gretchen Wilson and Bob DiPiero and be able to share our music is a thrill. Every year just gets better and better and 2011 is off to an incredible start!
