COLD RIVER RECORDS artist DREW BALDRIDGE has donated a BOSE L1 Model 1S system and custom PELICAN travel case to METRO NASHVILLE PUBLIC SCHOOLS' MUSIC MAKES US program. BALDRIDGE visited seventh and eighth grade band students at LITTON MIDDLE SCHOOL to perform and spend time with the children in celebration of his donation, and the students reciprocated the gesture by preparing a song to play for him.
"We live in 'MUSIC CITY,' so no one should be surprised that I am a super advocate of music in education," said BALDRIDGE. "I know how much my own life has benefited, and every day, people tell me that music healed their souls, or touched their hearts, or steered them down the right path, and I believe it is that powerful. I believe it can steer young people in the right direction to succeed in life. We know from the statistics that when music is added to their curriculum, the benefits are impressive and they are much more likely to graduate. I am honored to be able to support such an amazing program as MUSIC MAKES US."
