Kristian Bush and Charlie Worsham participated in various events across Washington, D.C., on Wednesday (June 22) ahead of their involvement with the National Association for Music Education’s annual Hill Day. The musicians advocated for music education on behalf of the CMA Foundation.

They visited The National Press Club, where Bush and Worsham entertained the crowd of journalists and fans with an acoustic performance. They were joined by CMA Chief Executive Officer Sarah Trahern and CMA Foundation Board Chairman Joe Galante for a panel discussion about the organization’s trip to the Hill. The panel was moderated by National Press Club President Thomas Burr.

Later in the evening Bush and Worsham participated in the CMA Songwriters Series, also featuring songwriter Jim Collins, for a full house at the Library of Congress’ Coolidge Auditorium. Special attendees included Congressman Marsha Blackburn (TN), Congressman Jim Cooper (TN), and Congressman Louie Gohmert (TX).

On Thursday the pair met individually with various state and national representatives for Hill Day to reinforce the need for all students to have access to quality music education programs in schools.
