Caitlyn Smith has been named CMA Foundations’s newest Artist Ambassador. She announced the news during a CMA Instagram takeover where she discussed the importance of music education, her past CMA Fest experiences, and the key role the festival plays in supporting music programs in schools.
“We are thrilled to have Caitlyn Smith join the CMA Foundation Artist Ambassador collective and use her voice to continue to amplify the power of music to students and music teachers,” says CMA Foundation Executive Director Tiffany Kerns. “Starting in music from an early age, Caitlyn knows firsthand the positive impact music can have on a student’s life. Her passion and support in driving the CMA Foundation’s mission to ensure that all students have equitable access to quality music education across the U.S. is invaluable.”
During her time as a CMA Foundation Artist Ambassador, Smith will create a Songwriting 101 video tutorial, giving viewers an inside look into her songwriting process and sharing songwriting tips and tricks she’s learned throughout her career. The CMA Foundation will also be partnering with Smith and Monument Records during their “Tuesday Night Music Club” at Basement East on July 13. The CMA Foundation writers round will feature Smith with more soon-to-be-announced artists.
“I am so honored to partner with the CMA Foundation as their next Artist Ambassador,” says Smith. “They are doing incredible, life changing work coming alongside school districts across the country to make sure schools have the resources they need to empower the next generation of musicians, songwriters, engineers, producers and beyond. Without music education, I don’t know where I would be in my own life, and I look forward to collaborating all year with all the amazing music educators and students.”
Smith joins the CMA Foundation’s Artist Ambassador collective alongside Jimmie Allen, Russell Dickerson, Lindsay Ell, Maddie & Tae and Ashley McBryde, all who have promoted music education in ways that are personal to them. Since its inception in 2011, the CMA Foundation has been helping improve and sustain music programs throughout the U.S. so all students have equitable opportunity to participate in music education.
