Jake Owen And Caitlyn Smith Host Performances Benefitting The CMA Foundation
Nashville, TN - Jul 19, 2021
The CMA Foundation, the philanthropic arm of the Country Music Association, took centerstage last week with Country artists Jake Owen and Caitlyn Smith each performing shows benefitting the CMA Foundation and its initiatives to improve and sustain equitable music education programs across the U.S. Across both performances, the artists raised a total of $5,000 to benefit the CMA Foundation and further the organization’s mission.
On Tuesday, July 13, during Monument Record’s Tuesday Night Music Club, Smith was joined by Alex Hall, Tigirlily and Tenille Townes for a special songwriter’s round at Basement East in Nashville. The songwriters took turns playing songs and telling the stories behind them. Sweatshirts were sold throughout the night to benefit the CMA Foundation.
Just a few days later, on Thursday, July 15, Owen hosted JAKE OWEN & FRIENDS: A CONCERT MADE FOR YOU at the historic Ryman Auditorium, where he performed some of his chart-topping hits alongside friends and fellow songwriters Benjy Davis, Joey Hyde and Neil Medley. Special guests included Jaren Johnston, Kendall Marvel, David Lee Murphy and Travis Tritt. A portion of proceeds from ticket sales went directly to the CMA Foundation.
As a CMA Foundation Artist Ambassador, Smith is also working with the CMA Foundation to create a Songwriting 101 video tutorial designed to give an in-depth look at her songwriting process. She joins the CMA Foundation’s Artist Ambassador collective alongside Jimmie Allen, Russell Dickerson, Lindsay Ell, Maddie & Tae and Ashley McBryde, all who are promoting music education in ways that are personal to them.
The CMA Foundation will continue to provide unique opportunities and support for music teachers and students as more Artist Ambassadors are announced throughout the year.
