Troy Gentry Helps CMA Help Kids

Troy Gentry of Montgomery Gentry helped the Country Music Association in presenting a donation to Nashville public schools, Wednesday, March 7.

The CMA is donating $368,000 from the 2006 CMA Music Festival through its “Keep the Music Playing” program, which assists in funding music education in the Nashville city schools. Troy’s contribution was a new 2007 Chevy Silverado truck that was requested by the Nashville School of the Arts to transport musical instruments and gear. He also donated his winnings from his recent appearance on TV’s Wheel of Fortune to the program. “This is a great opportunity as an artist to give back to the community,” Troy told members of the Nashville media. Troy added that his early musical education gave him “structure and a sense of direction.”
