Full Line-Ups Announced and Ticket Information for CCMA Songwriters’ Series


2015 CCMA Songwriters’ Series (These are 19+ events)
It's impossible to ignore what some consider to be the greatest aspect of country music, and what makes it resonant as a genre - the song writing. The CCMA Songwriters’ Series celebrates the crafting of original songs and the stories behind the words, indulging listeners with both new and familiar faces in the process. This four-day, acoustic performance event – a marque series as part of Country Music Week – is sure to inspire and evoke strong emotions in all who attend.

From Canada’s most iconic country songs to today’s biggest hits, from up-and-coming artists to established faces you know and love, the CCMA Songwriters’ Series has something for everyone; and culminates on the Sunday of Country Music Week with a session that features master class songwriters from both sides of the border in a guitar pull setting.
