CAPITOL NASHVILLE artist DIERKS BENTLEY visited P.S. 103, an Elementary School in the BRONX, NY TODAY (9/13) on behalf of the COUNTRY MUSIC ASSOCIATION’s (CMA) “Keep The Music Playing” program. He spoke to the children about the importance of using music as a form of expression.
“CMA’s “Keep The Music Playing” does so much to enable the future of kids who might not have a hands-on experience with music otherwise. I was honored that they asked me to be their ambassador for the day on behalf of all the Country music artists who donate their time each year to help this cause. They’ve made a huge dent in the music needs in NASHVILLE, so it was really cool to help expand their mission to one of Country music’s top markets, like NEW YORK CITY,” said DIERKS.
After speaking to the students, BENTLEY had the opportunity to tour the school’s music rooms which were filled with $20,000 worth of instruments and supplies provided by the CMA Foundation.
