About the show
Multiple Grammy and CMA Award winner, Darius Rucker performs songs from his recently released #1 studio album Southern Style for the CMA Songwriters Series at Nashville’s Marathon Music Works. The Grand Ole Opry inductee is joined by songwriters Casey Beathard, Nathan Chapman, Chris Dubois, Ashley Gorley, Tim James, Charles Kelley, Clay Mills, Frank Rogers and Rivers Rutherford. Collectively they are responsible for some of Rucker’s biggest hits including “Alright,” “Don’t Think I Don’t Think About It,” and his current lead single “Homegrown Honey,” which he performs with co-writers Chapman, and label mate Kelley of Lady Antebellum.
“There would be no great songs without great songwriters willing to put everything they feel and think about life’s little nuances out there for the world to hear,” says Rucker. “Writing with these folks over the years is like therapy, camaraderie and comedy all in one session, and it’s made me not only a better songwriter but also a better person to have such incredibly inspiring and talented people as my friends. They are the creative core of our industry, and I’m happy to help shed some light on that process and talent with Front & Center.”
