It’s a longstanding event as part of Country Music Week, and one of the most beloved. It’s where we hear the stories behind the songs, and get inspired by the artistry behind the craft. It’s the CCMA Songwriters’ Series – and you could be a part of it.

Each year, the CCMA solicits submissions from its members who excel at the craft of songwriting and want to share their stories with audiences during our annual event.

The 2020 CCMA Songwriters’ Series, as part of Country Music Week in Hamilton, will feature three sessions: Thursday, September 10; Friday, September 11 and Saturday, September 12. 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 industry members.

Submissions received for the 2020 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.

Deadline for submissions is Friday, February 7, 2020 at 2:00 p.m. ET (no exceptions).
