Tenille Townes has been named the newest Artist Ambassador for the CMA Foundation Artist Ambassador, the philanthropic arm of the Country Music Association.
As an Ambassador, Townes will visit Stewarts Creek Middle School in Smyrna, Tennessee and Isaiah T. Creswell Middle Magnet School of the Visual and Performing Arts in Nashville, as well as two additional elementary schools in nearby Coffee County. Through these visits, the CMA Foundation aims to engage, equip and empower both students and educators through music.
“We could not be more thrilled to welcome Tenille into the CMA Foundation Artist Ambassador collective,” says Tiffany Kerns, CMA Foundation Executive Director. “She has been such a valuable advocate for the CMA Foundation’s mission to provide equitable access to quality music education across the U.S., and we are grateful for the way she continues to use her voice to enhance and support these initiatives.”
“I truly am honored to be the new CMA Foundation Ambassador and to have the opportunity to be a part of the incredible work they are doing bringing music into the lives of kids out there,” says Townes. “Music is such a powerful force in this world and using it to make a difference in somebody’s life is the most important part about my dream and mission as an artist. I believe in the work that the CMA Foundation is doing so much. Music can completely alter the path of a young kid’s life for the better, giving a sense of purpose, belonging and a safe place to turn to. It still is that place for me, and it makes me so excited to think about so many young students having access to that.”
Previous Artist Ambassadors include Jimmie Allen, Russell Dickerson, Lindsay Ell, Maddie & Tae, Ashley McBryde, Caitlyn Smith and Charlie Worsham who have all supported music education initiatives in ways that are unique and personal to them.
Townes is also set to embark on “The Girl Who Didn’t Care” Tour, her first-ever headlining tour across her native country of Canada. “The Girl Who Didn’t Care” Tour will bring Townes to eight markets including Toronto, Montreal, Calgary, and Winnipeg. Public on-sale begins on Sept. 10.
