As part of Country Music Month, the popular CMA Songwriters Series will once again travel to Chicago for a show at Joe's Bar, a sports bar located in the former North End warehouse district, on Oct. 24 at 8:30 p.m. Hosted by Bob DiPiero, the evening will feature Sunny Sweeney, Kendall Marvel and Leslie Satcher.

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," Sweeney said. "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).

Tickets for the Oct. 24 show cost $15 in advance and $20 at the door; tickets are now available at or at Joe's Bar’s box office (cash only). There will be limited seating and standing room on a first-come, first-serve basis. Fans must be 21 or older to gain entrance to Joe's Bar.
