The Frog shoot the CMA Songwriter Series in London
Our good friends down at 2country.net commissioned us to photograph the highly anticipated gig headlined by four massive names from Nashville – Chris Young, Kristian Bush (Sugarland), Rob DiPiero and Brett James.
We were fortunate enough to have photographed at the amazing Bush Hall last year (Pete Townshend), so we knew what a treat it would be – the ambient lighting in this venue gives off a truly warm glow which really complements the atmosphere of these kinds of intimate gigs.
So this year, the highly regarded CMA Songwriter Series brought four massive songwriters/performers to London to enthrall us with some of the most breathtaking acoustic melodies combined with some banter and stories that had the audience in stitches (none moreso than the ultra-charismatic Kristian Bush – one half of US superduo, Sugarland).
Equipped with our hardy SLRs, we snapped away over the first three songs from various intricate and sometimes awkward angles . A big thanks goes out to security for their flexibility for further shots throughout the night!
It’s always a pleasure to shoot live gigs, even moreso at amazing venues, but this was a real treat to see and hear some of the finest songwriting to come out of Nashville.
