That same evening, she will join fellow songwriters Chris Young, Brett James, Victoria Shaw and host Bob DiPiero at Club Nokia for the CMA Songwriters Series. She will perform her Grammy-nominated single "I'd Love To Be Your Last" on both "The Talk" and the "Tonight Show" exactly as it was originally recorded -- with just acoustic guitar and cello.
