Country artist and television star BILLY RAY CYRUS is teaming with the CMA (COUNTRY MUSIC ASSOCIATION) to lend their voice to DRIVE4COPD, to raise awareness of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) among Country Music fans and artists.
DRIVE4COPD is a national public health initiative that aims to help people identify symptoms of COPD and take action. CYRUS will kick off this new partnership by hosting the "DRIVE4COPD Pavilion" on the Black Carpet at "The 44th Annual CMA AWARDS" on WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 10th, where he will greet visiting artists and celebrities and ask them to lend their support and autograph the colorful DRIVE4COPD pinwheel icon.
"I'm proud to be partnering with the CMA and DRIVE4COPD," said BILLY RAY. "It's astounding to think that COPD is the fourth leading cause of death in the United States and yet many people don't even know what it stands for. If I can help inspire Americans to find out more about COPD and get screened then I've done my job."
