Ashley McBryde has teamed up withe The CMA Foundation, the philanthropic arm of the Country Music Association (CMA), to launch its inaugural Artist Ambassador program as part of its Unified Voices for Music Education (UVfME) initiative. The program further expands the organization’s awareness and advocacy efforts in support of music educators, students and teachers as they continue to face many challenges amidst the current global health pandemic.
As the first UVfME Artist Ambassador, Ashley will use her voice to advocate for music education throughout the month of November. She will work with music educators in a variety of ways including creating an original band-specific video lesson plan, meeting virtually with music educators to discuss challenges they are facing during this time and sharing how music education led to her career in Country Music.
Ashley said, “Music education has always been a big part of my life and has had an enormous impact on the musician and writer I am today. It is a career highlight to be a small part of a program that will better allow teachers and students a chance to engage with music education during such unprecedented times.”
She shared details about her involvement in the program last week on The Kelly Clarkson Show.
