The Nashville Alliance partners with the Country Music Association with its “Keep the Music Playing” program, which supports music education in Metro Public Schools. Since 2006, the program has raised more than $2 million from the proceeds of the annual CMA Music Festival to purchase much-needed musical instruments and equipment for schools. “As artists we donate our time to the CMA Music Festival so that we’re able to give back,” said Jay. “Music education was very important in my life, and because of that, I’m able to do what I do today.”
