As part of Country Music Month, the popular CMA Songwriters Series will travel once again to Chicago for a show at Joe’s Bar on Wednesday, Oct. 24 (8:30 PM/CT), before returning to the place where it all began, New York City’s Joe’s Pub, on Thursday, Oct. 25 (6:30 PM/ET and 9:00 PM/ET). Sunny Sweeney will join Kendell Marvel, Leslie Satcher, and host Bob DiPiero for two nights of storytelling and singing.

Sweeney’s Top 10 single, “From a Table Away,” was the highest charting debut single from a female artist since 2006. She has toured with Lady Antebellum, Brad Paisley, and Darius Rucker, performing in front of more than one million fans.

“I am honored and so happy to represent the CMA and Country Music in New York City and Chicago,” said Sweeney. “Being in the presence of the kind of writers this series showcases is both humbling and inspiring.”

Joining Sweeney will be Marvel (“Right Where I Need To Be” recorded by Gary Allan, “Don’t Think I Can’t Love You” recorded by Jake Owen, and “Twang” recorded by George Strait), Satcher (“When God-Fearin’ Women Get The Blues” recorded by Martina McBride, “Tough” recorded by Kellie Pickler, and “Politically Uncorrect” recorded by Gretchen Wilson), and the evening’s host, Bob DiPiero (“Southern Voice” recorded by Tim McGraw, “Blue Clear Sky” recorded by George Strait, and “Lovin’ You is Fun” recorded by Easton Corbin).
