BLACK RIVER ENTERTAINMENT artist KELSEA BALLERINI announced YESTERDAY (12/6) the CMA FOUNDATION's $1 million grant to METRO NASHVILLE PUBLIC SCHOOLS. The grant supports initiatives aimed at strengthening music education programs and music teacher support in classrooms across NASHVILLE. Funds for the grant were raised through CMA's annual CMA MUSIC FESTIVAL, held in NASHVILLE in JUNE.
"I think it is so important to give kids the opportunity to learn what they are passionate about," said BALLERINI. "When I was in middle and high school, I took as many chorus and theater classes as I could, and I use the tools I learned then in my career today!"
