The CMA Songwriters Series, featuring Tishomingo resident Miranda Lambert, Oklahoma-bred songsmith Brett James, Kip Moore, and Bob DiPiero, who will also serve as the evening’s host, will be streamed live on CMASongwritersSeries.com from the Royale Boston Nightclub in Boston at 7:30 tonight.
The CMA Songwriters Series, now celebrating nine years, showcases some of country music’s top songwriters telling the stories behind their biggest hits while performing them in a unique, acoustic setting, according to a news release.
Lambert is the reigning Country Music Association Female Vocalist of the Year and Song of the Year winner for “Over You.” She also won the CMA Album of the Year trophy in 2010 for “Revolution.” Lambert’s songwriting credits include “Baggage Claim,” “White Liar,” and “Gunpowder & Lead.”
MCA Nashville recording artist Moore’s debut album, Up All Night, released last year, hit the top 5 on the Billboard Country chart. Moore had a hand in co-writing every song on the album including “Beer Money,” the chart-topping “Somethin’ ‘Bout a Truck,” and his current single “Hey Pretty Girl.”
Joining Lambert and Moore will be James (“Jesus Take the Wheel” recorded by Carrie Underwood and “Mr. Know It All” recorded by Kelly Clarkson). James has had at least 11 No.1 hits.
