Buck Owens may have claimed that he wouldn’t live in New York City even if they gave him the whole dang town, but the Bakersfield legend would have to admit that, these days, some pretty good country music comes through here. Beyond the mega-shows, the CMA Songwriter Series showcases at Joe’s Pub tend to be the most reliable affairs at which host Bob DiPiero and artists like Dierks Bentley and Little Big Town come by to play a few of their compositions. Tonight, Deana Carter (of Did I Shave My Legs for This? fame) and James Otto (a Big & Rich associate) give the city a chance.
