Share this post:

Free tickets will be available on Saturday evening, December 4,  for the Country Music Association Songwriters Series featuring Little Big Town. The plantinum-selling vocal quartet is fresh off a wonderful performance at the CMA Christmas show, and will be joined at the Coolidge by songwriters Brett James  (“Jesus, Take the Wheel,” recorded by Carrie Underwood; “When the Sun Goes Down,” recorded by Kenny Chesney; and “The Truth,” recorded by Jason Aldean); Lori McKenna (“Stealing Kisses,” recorded by Faith Hill; “I’m Workin,’” recorded by Tim McGraw; and “Bible Song,” recorded by Sara Evans); and host Bob DiPiero (“Southern Voice,” recorded by Tim McGraw; “Blue Clear Sky,” recorded by George Strait; and “You Can’t Take the Honky Tonk Out of the Girl,” recorded by Brooks & Dunn).

The line will form at 5:00 pm outside the Coolidge Auditorium in the Thomas Jefferson Building at the Library of Congress (Metro: Capitol South). Tickets will be distributed at 6:00 pm.

The Music Division is no stranger to country music, having hosted legendary songwriter Dolly Parton, who received a Living Legend award in 2004 and is also the subject of a presentation in the Performing Arts Encyclopedia. Country music legends can also be found among the images in the William P. Gottlieb collection. Best known for documenting the jazz scene in the 1940’s and 50’s, Gottlieb also covered country stars like Ernest Tubb, at a 1947 Carnegie Hall performance that also featured comedienne Minnie Pearl, who readers of a certain age may remember as a regular on the television program Hee-Haw.
