Nashville Artists Support National and Local Public Libraries

Mat Kearney and Taylor Swift have joined the national Read Across America campaign set for March 2 by recording PSAs and making donations.

Swift has donated 14,000 books to the Nashville Public Library and will release a national campaign (seen below) with co-stars from her forthcoming animated film The Lorax. The film interpretation of the Dr. Seuss book includes voices from Swift, Zac Efron, Danny Devito, Betty White and Ed Helm and will be released March 2, the day of the Read Across America campaign.

Mat Kearney also shares his love for reading in a similar PSA supporting e-books at Nashville’s library titled Discover NPL. Kearney will additionally appear on the Feb 28th Jimmy Kimmel Live! debuting new single “Ships in the Night” from his current album Young Love (Universal Republic) and is currently on a headlining tour in California through April.
