Friday was a HUGE day for the city of Houston. We kinda all took off work to celebrate our World Series Champion Astros downtown in a little parade. Bah! But we can NOT miss another huge event that took place here in Houston on Friday afternoon.
…The Country Music Association was in town and brought a HUGE surprise for your kiddos.
Today I stopped by an elementary school in Houston to help the CMA Foundation announce a $1M music education grant and unveil $50,000 worth of new instruments to a very cool group of kids. I had no idea that my concert at #CMAFest would have this big of an impact. I am so proud that we can help give kids the opportunity to experience music in school. Thanks to the CMA Foundation for what you do – kids need music in their lives! #HoustonStrong
…School may have been canceled because of the Astros Parade, but The CMAs still showed up to announce a major partnership with the Houston Independent School District.
…Over the last several months, the Houston Independent School District has been working with the CMA to implement a district-wide music education initiative. And Friday’s big announcement came with a surprise visit from one of our favorite country music stars, Luke Combs. Luke is nominated in the New Artist category in tomorrow’s CMA Awards program, but made time to surprise a room full of students, faculty and parents with a ONE MILLION DOLLAR music education grant. And on top of that, he unveiled another $50,000 worth of new instruments for the kiddos.
…One day, our Houston area students will be on the CMA stage and we’ll have Luke Combs and the CMA Foundation to thank for it! ❤
