Chris Young Keeps The Music Playing In Nashville Schools

One of the great things about country music is the way the stars give back to the community. You may not hear about it, because it’s not a grab for publicity. But I guarantee you, most of them are more than happy to give of themselves to help out, whatever the cause. Here’s the perfect example.

Chris Young hosted the CMA’s 3rd Annual Keep the Music Playing All Stars Concert in Nashville Tuesday night. The event honored area schools that benefitted from the Keep the Music Playing program this year. Chris knows personally how important music education is in the schools. Chris told CMT Daily Roundup, “My choir teacher Brenda Gregory…ah, definitely somebody that pushed me a lot. And you know there’s so many people that touched what I did from school. That’s why this is big. That’s why this is something that I’m proud to be a part of.” The CMA announced a $1.4-million donation to Nashville area schools Tuesday night that will go toward purchasing instruments and other music education initiatives. The CMA has donated a total of $6.1-million to Nashville schools’ music programs on behalf of the artists that play the CMA Music Festival for free.
