The CMA Songwriters Series makes its debut in Texas Wednesday, Sept. 11 (8:00 PM/CT) at
Antone’s in Austin for a special night of storytelling and song. Celebrating its
ninth remarkable year, the CMA Songwriters Series will feature special guests
Lee Brice, Randy Houser, Jerrod Niemann, and
Bob DiPiero, who will also serve as the evening’s host. Tickets
go on sale tomorrow. 

 
Houser,
a two-time CMA Awards nominee, has charted 2 No. 1 songs, the title track from
his 2013 release “How Country Feels” and his current single “Runnin’ Outta
Moonlight.” Houser has also written songs for Trace Adkins, Justin Moore, and
Chris Young.
 
“Lee,
Jerrod, and I have been writing together for a long time – way before any of us
had hits,” shares Houser. “So it’s really cool to be able to come together and
each have a No. 1 to play and share the stories behind a lot of the songs,
too.”
 
Niemann,
a 2010 CMA New Artist of the Year nominee, has penned songs for Country Music
heavyweights like Garth Brooks (“Good Ride Cowboy”) and Jamey Johnson (“My
Saving Grace”). Niemann has also recorded hits of his own including the Top 15
“Shinin’ On Me,” the Top 5 “What Do You Want,” and his Platinum No. 1 single
“Lover, Lover.”
 
“I’m
in the process of writing and recording for a new album, so to have the
opportunity to play an event as intimate as the CMA Songwriters Series is
special,” said Niemann. “Randy, Lee and I cut our teeth in this industry
together and Bob is one of our heroes, so we’re all excited to come together for
this night to celebrate the music.”
 
Brice
made history when Brooks recorded his song “More Than a Memory,” which became
the first song to debut at No. 1 on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs
chart. The title track off of his own album, Love Like Crazy, was named
Billboard's most played Country song of 2010; and it still
holds the record for the longest-charting song in the history of
Billboard's Hot Country Songs chart. Additionally, he has had
three other singles top the charts, “A Woman Like You,” “Hard To Love,” and “I
Drive Your Truck.” Other artists that have recorded his songs include Jason
Aldean, Kenny Chesney, Tim McGraw, and Blake Shelton.
 
CMA
Songwriters Series host and member of the Songwriters Hall of Fame
DiPiero (“Southern Voice,” recorded by Tim McGraw, “Blue Clear
Sky,” recorded by George Strait, and “Lovin’ You Is Fun,” recorded by Easton
Corbin) will serve as host, sharing the entertaining stories behind some of his
most popular hit songs. DiPiero has had more than 1,200 songs recorded by other
artists, countless hit singles, and an astounding 15 No. 1 hits.

Was LeAnn Rimes drunk during her X Factor performance last night?

Last night I had video of Little Big Town and LeAnn Rimes performing with contestants on day one of “The X Factor’s” finale. Almost immediately people started coming to NashvilleGab searching for LeAnn Rimes drunk or other similar search terms. I thought that was a little odd. I had watched the video of LeAnn and had thought her performance was a little off and her voice didn’t sound in tip top shape, but drunk?
