Leadership Music is inviting members of the music industry and the Nashville community to its May 17 gala honoring the CMA. Tickets are still available for the event hosted by Martina McBride at Nashville’s Renaissance Hotel. Also set to perform are Little Big Town, Ronnie Milsap, Brad Paisley and Keith Urban.
During the event the Leadership Music Dale Franklin Award will be presented to the Country Music Association. Owing to the CMA’s relationships with the music industry in general and the Nashville community at large through its numerous philanthropic efforts and outreach programs, seats to the dinner and tribute show are being offered to CMA members and the broader Nashville community, in addition to Leadership Music alumni.
Ticket reservations may be made online via www.dfa.eventbrite.com; the event password is DFA2011.
