About the show

The11-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.”

“The core of country music is its songs, and the CMA established the Songwriters Series 10 years ago to recognize a really important part of our genre, the songwriters,” said Bentley. “We don’t typically take the time to thank the songwriters, so collaborating with the CMA and Front and Center was the perfect place – a night with five guys on stools sharing stories, songs and whiskey.
