The Country Music Association continues to expand its international reach; the organization will host its first International Country Music Marketing Summit at Disneyland Paris on March 1.

The summit will include panels, research presentations, opportunities to network and a CMA Songwriters Series event featuring Wynonna, Sugarland’s Kristian Bush, singer-songwriter Brett James and songwriter Dallas Davidson. The CMA Songwriters series will be hosted by Bob DiPiero.

“With immediate and convenient access to country music, the world market is fertile ground for our industry and artists,” said Steve Moore, CEO of the CMA, via a release. “Country artists are selling out major venues; our CMA Songwriter Series is returning to the UK and Ireland in February and new events like the ‘C2C: Country to Country’ Country Music Festival at the 02 Arena in London in March are a strong indication of the burgeoning popularity of the music and the need for this type of educational platform across the world.”

Early Bird registration for the event is available for $100. For information, visit An application for media credentials is available at
