Nashville’s fourth annual “Hometown to Hometown” event from Save The Music and SongFarm.org is set for Monday, June 5 at City Winery.
This year’s event will honor CMT’s Leslie Fram, Mickey Guyton and Trisha Yearwood for their contributions to the music industry and their passion for music education.
Hosted by CMT Hot 20 Countdown’s Cody Alan and Rissi Palmer, the annual fundraiser will feature special acoustic performances from Kelsea Ballerini, Madeline Edwards, Caylee Hammack, Karyn Rochelle, Leslie Satcher and Brittney Spencer, with appearances by Tracy Gershon (President, TG Management & Consultants; Co-Founder, Northern Light Music), Cindy Mabe (Chair & CEO, Universal Music Group Nashville), Melinda Newman (Executive Editor, West Coast & Nashville, Billboard), and Julie Williams (Artist, CMT Next Women of Country and Black Opry).
All funds raised from this year’s “Hometown to Hometown” event will support music technology programs in under-resourced high schools in Nashville, Georgia and Texas, helping impact the lives of thousands of students.
“Since Save The Music first teamed up with Ross Copperman and SongFarm.org in 2019, the Nashville songwriter community has funded nine music education programs through this annual event, reaching thousands of students from North Carolina to Nashville to Texas to Washington State. This year’s event is going to be the biggest and best ever as we celebrate an all-female roster of songwriters, executives and artists. We’re incredibly grateful to Leslie, Mickey, Trisha and all of this year’s performers for empowering young people to reach their full potential through the power of making music,” says Henry Donahue, Executive Director of Save The Music.
For the past 25 years, Save The Music has donated over $70 million in instruments and music technology equipment to over 2,500 public schools nationwide. With the support of sponsors and donors, including CMT, Gibson Gives, MAXISIQ and MTV Entertainment Studios, “Hometown to Hometown” continues to make a significant impact on music education in the area.
