What does CMA Fest do for music education?
Each year, CMA Fest attracts 400+ artists and nearly 90,000 fans. During those four days, the dedicated Country artists donate their time and talent to 11 stages raising $2.5 million for music education. Half of the net proceeds from CMA Fest are then donated to the CMA Foundation, the Country Music Association’s charitable arm. Thanks to the Country artists, our fans, and partners – we have invested $20 million to support music education programs throughout the country. The CMA Foundation is committed to providing quality access so every child has the opportunity to participate in music. THANK YOU for providing over the gift of music education to 1,000,000+ children in the U.S.
