Joining Underwood for the songwriters in the round event will be Brett James, Luke Laird, Hillary Lindsay and host Bob DiPiero. In the show, the writers tend to sit on chairs, acoustic guitars in hand, trading stories and songs.

"I'm so excited to be a part of the CMA Songwriter Series with Hillary, Luke, Brett, and Bob! Not only are they some of the most respected songwriters in Nashville, but I'm very lucky to call them my friends. It's going to be a great night, said Underwood.

"We first brought the CMA Songwriters Series to Boston last year, and it was a huge success," said Steve Moore, CMA Chief Executive Officer. "We are so excited to have Carrie participating in this event. New England's country music fans are in for an unforgettable night."

Those onstage with Underwood also wrote songs she recorded. James wrote Jesus, Take the Wheel and Cowboy Casanova along with The Truth recorded by Jason Aldean and Out Last Night recorded by Chesney.
