Submissions Now Open for the 2017 CCMA Songwriters' Series
The CCMA Songwriters' Series is a longstanding and beloved event of Country Music Week, as it's the songwriting - and the stories - of country music that truly sets the genre apart from others.
Each year, the CCMA solicits submissions from its members who excel at the craft of songwriting and want to share their stories with audiences of both industry and the public during our annual event.
The 2017 CCMA Songwriters' Series, as part of PotashCorp Country Music Week, will feature three sessions this year: Thursday, September 7; Friday, September 8 and Saturday, September 9. Each session will showcase eight (8) artists; four (4) of whom will be selected from submissions received, and four (4) of whom will be decided upon by a CCMA-appointed talent advisory committee made up of impartial individuals within the industry.
Submissions received for the 2017 CCMA Songwriters' Series will be reviewed by an impartial industry-led jury and successful applicants will be notified of their opportunity to showcase as part of the event this spring.
