The CMA Songwriter Series will return to Nashville on Wednesday, October 31 at Marathon Music Works with Sugarland’s Kristian Bush, Brantley Gilbert and host Bob DiPiero. The series is part of CMA’s Country Music Month spotlighting the genre leading up to the CMA Awards on November 1.

“The CMA Awards bring out the best in everybody, and that applies to fans of Country Music as well – just being around the energy of Nashville during CMA Week is contagious,” Kristian said. “So to play this CMA Songwriters Showcase for all those dedicated fans, in the middle of all that energy? What an incredible honor. It feels like the Super Bowl of writers’ nights. I can only imagine how exciting it’s going to be to perform.”

“This is really cool that the CMA asked me to join some of the best songwriters around and give us the opportunity to share our stories,” Brantley said. “As all of my fans know, songwriting is very important to me and has definitely been therapeutic. Whether it’s about throwing a party in the sticks or getting over a girl, my music always seems to come from my personal experiences. I look forward to sharing more stories on this night.”

Bob DiPiero’s chart-toppers  include “Southern Voice,” “Blue Clear Sky” and “Lovin’ You Is Fun.” He’s a member of the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame and has been hosting the Songwriters Series since its inception at Joe’s Pub in New York City in 2005.

Tickets for the Oct. 31 CMA Songwriters Series are $30 and will go on sale Friday, Oct. 5. Tickets can be purchased online at or by calling (877) 4-FLY-TIX. For more information on the CMA Songwriters Series, visit
