Chris Young and Suzy Bogguss Help Kick Off CMA's Arts Education Program

The Boot is reporting:

On Tuesday (Jan. 31), the Country Music Association Foundation announced a $1.4 million donation to benefit music education programs in Nashville's public schools.
Chris Young and Suzy Bogguss were both on hand for the announcement of the donation, which the CMA makes annually to its Keep the Music Playing program on behalf of all the musicians who perform and appear at the annual CMA Music Festival free of charge.

This is something I can really get behind. Our children need the arts back in public schools. Arts are just as important as sports, science, mathematics, and the like. Tennessee has a large population of people employed through their work in the arts/entertainment fields which also sprouted other businesses. Kentucky, California, Georgia, and most of our states have had a huge impact on the arts and entertainment world and we should consider this an employable profession with education needed in our schools. It's not just a recreational education or elective.
