NASHVILLE – As part of the events and activities leading up

star Sara Evans and songwriter Brett James to
the lineup, which includes previously announced performer and 2014 CMA Awards
nominee, Brandy Clark.

Multi-Platinum-selling recording artist and CMA Award
winner Evans, who recently released her second single “Put My Heart Down”
from her critically acclaimed seventh studio album Slow Me Down, has
sold nearly 6 million records and charted five No. 1 Country singles, including
“Suds In The Bucket, “A Real Fine Place To Start,” and “A Little Bit Stronger.”
Evans will release a 10-track holiday album At Christmas on Nov. 17,
featuring some of the most well-known and celebrated holiday songs including “Silent
Night,” “Oh Holy Night,” and “Winter Wonderland,” as well as a very
special rendition of “12 Days of Christmas” with vocals from two of her daughters
Olivia (12) and Audrey (10). Evans will also be a part of the two-hour holiday
special “CMA Country Christmas,” which tapes Friday, Nov. 7 at the Bridgestone Arena and airs Monday, Dec. 1 (8:00-10:00 PM/ET) on the ABC Television Network.

An esteemed member of the
CMA Board of Directors, James has had numerous chart successes including “When
the Sun Goes Down” recorded by Kenny Chesney and Uncle Kracker, and “Jesus Take
the Wheel” recorded by Carrie Underwood, which also won a Grammy Award for Best
Female Country Vocal Performance and Best Country Song. “It’s America” recorded
by Rodney Atkins, “Out Last Night” recorded by Chesney, and “Cowboy Casanova”
recorded by Underwood, all co-written by James, also topped the Country charts
as well as “The Truth” recorded by Jason Aldean and “The Man I Want to Be” recorded
by Chris Young. ASCAP named James their Country Music Songwriter of the Year in
2006 and again in 2010. Other artists who have recorded his works include Kelly
Clarkson, Backstreet Boys, Bon Jovi, and Paulina Rubio.
