New York, NY (Top40 Charts) The Country Music Association's critically acclaimed CMA Songwriters Series Presented by U.S. Bank hosted a performance last night featuring Mary Chapin Carpenter, Vince Gill, Mac McAnally and Don Schlitz at downtown Nashville's CMA Theater at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum to kick off CMA Fest; a limited number of four-day tickets for CMA Fest's nightly concerts at Nissan Stadium are still available at or through the CMA Box Office at 1-800-CMA-FEST.

The intimate and often hilarious evening was a reunion of longtime friends and musical collaborators, with several rounds featuring the songwriters' favorite songs and even requests from each other. Eighteen-time CMA Awards winner Gill emceed the evening, which included a lightning round of questions for his friends on stage in between songs. In total, all four songwriters hold a combined 32 CMA Awards. Gill and Schlitz are also members of the Country Music Hall of Fame.
