February 7, 2012 – CMA Songwriters Series will return to the venue where it all began, New York City’s Joe’s Pub, on Thursday, March 22 (6:30 and 9:00 PM/ET). This will be the eighth year for the wildly popular series that continues to play to sell-out crowds.

“CMA is excited to bring our Songwriters Series back to the place where it all began,” said Steve Moore, CMA Chief Executive Officer. “Joe’s Pub is a great place to showcase Nashville’s extraordinary songwriters and the people of New York have proven time and time again how much they appreciate great Country Music. Due to the popularity of this series that began at Joe’s Pub, we have taken the CMA Songwriters Series to other cities, not only in the U.S., but to the United Kingdom as well.”

“Joe's Pub is once again honored to have partnered with CMA to bring the best and most talented artists and songwriters to New York City in 2012,” said Kevin Abbott, Managing director of Joe’s Pub. “It is our mission to program all genres of music and this series with the CMA has cemented Joe's Pub as the premier place to see Country Music. With the reputation of the CMA behind our programming we have been able to grow the Country Music audience and bring artists and fans together in a way that rarely happens in this region. We look forward to an incredibly exciting and entertaining year with Bob DiPiero and the CMA bringing Country to NYC!”

Songwriters participating in the March 22 event are Lee Thomas Miller (“I’m Still a Guy” recorded by Brad Paisley, “You’re Gonna Miss This” recorded by Trace Adkins, and “The Impossible” recorded by Joe Nichols), Jim Photoglo (“Fishin’ in the Dark” recorded by the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, “Hometown Honeymoon” recorded by Alabama, and “You Give Me Love” recorded by Faith Hill), and Victoria Shaw (“I Love the Way You Love Me” recorded by John Michael Montgomery, and “The River” and “She’s Every Woman,” both recorded by Garth Brooks).
