CMA Songwriters Series will return to London’s indigo at The O2 on Thursday 10th March 2022 as part of C2C: Country to Country Festival.
Taking part will be Russell Dickerson, Shy Carter, Ashley Gorley and Caitlyn Smith, along with special guests.
The CMA Songwriters Series has given artists including Jimmie Allen, Brandy Clark, Luke Combs, Travis Denning and Maren Morris their first U.K. performances.
“We are thrilled to be bringing the CMA Songwriters Series back to C2C this year,” says Milly Olykan, CMA Vice President, International Relations and Development. “Thanks to the continued warm reception from fans across the U.K., presenting our Songwriters event at C2C is always special, however, this year we are especially grateful to be a small part of Country Music’s re-entry into the U.K. In a time of isolation and uncertainty, Country songs were a source of comfort for many, so it seems fitting to have these incredible songwriters kick of the 2022 C2C. We can’t wait for March!”
