The Pines Theater 2016 season continues Tuesday, March 8 with The Music City Hit-Makers, a group of elite Nashville songwriters who perform and share the stories behind some of the biggest hits they’ve penned for today’s most iconic country stars.
“If you love country music, you’ll definitely want to see this show by ‘the most famous people you never heard of,” said Tara Watson-Watkins, executive director of the Lufkin Convention and Visitors Bureau and artistic director for The Pines. “This is a group of incredibly talented songwriters who are responsible for some of the most popular songs on the radio, and it’s fascinating to hear how those songs began as ideas and were lovingly crafted into giant hits.”
The list of artists who have turned to the songwriters in The Music City Hit-Makers is a who’s who of country music’s biggest stars: Reba McEntire, Carrie Underwood, Miranda Lambert, Kenny Chesney, Martina McBride, Rascal Flatts, Lady Antebellum, Luke Bryan, Jason Aldean, Blake Shelton, Dierks Bentley and more have tapped members of the Music City Hit-Makers to pen songs for them.
The Music City Hit-Makers’ performance is accentuated by the orchestral scores of Charles Judge, arranger and conductor for Carrie Underwood’s performances with the Hollywood Bowl & Ravinia Festival Orchestras and Blake Shelton’s Not-So-Family Christmas Special on NBC.
The Music City Hit-Makers’ performance begins at 7 p.m. Tickets are $35 for floor seats and $30 for balcony seats. Call 936-633-0349 today to purchase tickets or go to www.visitlufkin.com.
