CMA Songwriters Series

The CMA Songwriters Series will have a slightly different line-up after Hillary Lindsay, Liz Rose and Lori McKenna all pulled out of the event.
However, organisers have acted quickly to find alternative replacements, with Tenille Townes, Caylee Hammack and Phil Barton to step in for them, joining Jaren Johnston of The Cadillac Three and Niko Moon.
The news comes hot on the heels that Old Dominion have pulled out of C2C citing corona virus fears and while we don’t have an exact reason for Lindsay, Rose and McKenna dropping out, it is suspected that the reasons are the same.
“After much consideration, we have decided to withdraw from our upcoming performances as part of the C2C Music Festival in Berlin, Amsterdam, Dublin, London and Glasgow,” the band said in a statement. “We are so sorry to disappoint our fans overseas; however, with the growing uncertainty and unpredictable nature of the virus that is spreading throughout the world, the safety and security of our entire team is the top priority.
“We are forever grateful for every opportunity we get to witness just how far our music is reaching and we will be back across the world as soon as we can. Much love and thank you for your support.”
With Old Dominion dropping out of C2C, The Shires will be taking their spot on the Main Stage across C2C weekend in London, Glasgow and Dublin, thus becoming the first UK artist to be a pencilled in Main Stage performer in C2C history.
The CMA Songwriters Series takes place on the Thursday of C2C week, so it will be taking place on March 12 this year.
