The CMA (COUNTRY MUSIC ASSOCIATION) was awarded the BELL AWARD from the NASHVILLE ALLIANCE FOR PUBLIC EDUCATION (NAPE), last night (8/15). The BELL AWARD is given by NAPE to organizations and individuals who have made a major donation of money or time to support METRO NASHVILLE PUBLIC SCHOOLS. CMA was honored for its "Keep the Music Playing" program, which donates half the net proceeds of CMA Music Festival to NAPE for music education needs in Nashville's public schools.
In 2006 the CMA donated $368,502 through the "Keep the Music Playing Program."
