Natalie Hemby and Host Bob DiPiero Round Out the Line Up
The CMA Songwriters Series returns once again to New York City’s Joe’s Pub on Wednesday, Aug. 1 (6:30 and 9:00 PM/ET). Tickets for this popular series go on sale Friday, June 29.
Featuring nine-time CMA Award nominee Little Big Town, consisting of members Karen Fairchild, Phillip Sweet, Kimberly Schlapman, and Jimi Westbrook, the CMA Songwriters Series allows music fans insight into the stories behind some of their favorite songs.
"We are so honored to be able to showcase the stunning talent of Little Big Town at our Joe's Pub CMA Songwriters Series show on Aug. 1,” said Brett James, noted songwriter and Chairman of the CMA Artist Relations Committee. “They are some of the best singers in the history of our format and it will be exciting as well for them to show off their unique approach to songwriting in such a wonderfully intimate acoustic environment.”
"It's an honor to be a part of the CMA Songwriter Series, especially with our dear friends Bob DiPiero and Natalie Hemby,” said Fairchild. “We are looking forward to being back at Joe's Pub and to be playing some of the new record. It's going to be a great night!"
The Platinum-selling group first entered the music scene more than 14 years ago with hits such as “Boondocks,” “Bring It On Home,” and “Good As Gone.” The group recently finished recording their fifth studio album with producer Jay Joyce and released the album’s first single “Pontoon” to radio in April. The single has sold more than 270,000 digital downloads in only five weeks. The foursome has played in front of more than four million people and is currently on Rascal Flatts’ nationwide "CHANGED" tour.
Joining Little Big Town will be Natalie Hemby (“Pontoon” recorded by Little Big Town, “White Liar” and “Baggage Claim” both recorded by Miranda Lambert), and the evening’s host, Bob DiPiero (“Southern Voice” recorded by Tim McGraw, “Blue Clear Sky” recorded by George Strait, and “You Can’t Take the Honky Tonk Out of the Girl” recorded by Brooks & Dunn).
