The Country Music Association Foundation is committed to improving and sustaining music education programs around the United States, working to ensure every child has the opportunity to participate in music education.
CMA Foundation has been able to distribute over $25 million dollars across the national public school system, after school programs, summer camps and community outreach organizations. Funds from the CMA Fest are used to promote the Foundation’s mission.
Music Teachers of Excellence is an event where thirty music teachers from around the United States are honored. Dierks Bentley hosted the event and performed with students from a local elementary school. You can watch the event here.
Many CMA Artists were onsite to offer their support to these teachers! Kelsea Ballerini, Karen Fairchild, Kix Brooks, Chris Young, and many more.
