The 11-time Grammy Award nominee and six-time CMA Award nominee is joined on stage by some of Nashville's best-known songwriters — Jim Beavers, Ross Copperman, Brett James and Jon Randall — for the 10th anniversary celebration of the CMA Songwriters Series. The taping included acoustic performances and stories about many of the songs performed, including hits "What Was I Thinking," "Drunk on a Plane" and "I Hold On."
FRONT AND CENTER showcases a strong mix of performers that will satisfy the traditional music fan while building interest from the younger music audience stations want to cultivate. From 'super groups' featuring Stephen Stills and Joe Bonamassa to British newcomer Jake Bugg; from Southern Soul and Heavy Metal to New Orleans Jazz and Chicago blues; there's something for just about everyone in the lineup of nine concerts recorded live, "front and center," at some of New York City's greatest intimate venues. Many of the artists are touring this fall, giving broadcasts airing in September and October a little extra buzz in those markets.
