CMA Fest 2019 Yields Over $2.2 Million For Music Education

This year’s CMA Fest featured over 300 artists performing on 11 stages around the city, and every artist participating donated his/her time during the four-day festival to help support music education around the country.

Thanks to the generosity of not only the artists performing at CMA Fest but the fans in attendance, a portion of the net proceeds totaling over $2.2 million has been donated to the CMA Foundation. Since its inception in 2011, the CMA Foundation has invested over $27 million towards their mission of ensuring every child has access to high-quality music education and providing educators with the resources they need to create and sustain thriving programs.

“CMA is thrilled to be donating more than $2.2 million this year to the CMA Foundation,” says Sarah Trahern, CMA Chief Executive Officer. “We wouldn’t be able to make this investment without the continued support from our artist community as well as our dedicated fans.”

The 49th annual CMA Fest will take place June 4–7, 2020.
