RaeLynn Kicking off 30th Anniversary of National Music in Our Schools Month Tomorrow

raelynn bus tour

RaeLynn will kick off the 30th Anniversary of National Music In Our Schools Month tomorrow at Walt Disney World, where she will perform at Festival Disney, a national competitive music fest for high school students.  After her stop in Florida, RaeLynn will help raise awareness for music education by visiting five lucky schools across the country, which she will help recognize for their achievements in music along with the Give A Note Foundation, National Association for Music Education and Radio Disney.

 

RaeLynn is honored to be a part of National Music in Our Schools Month because music education during her school years had a profound impact on her.  “The way for me to be creative was being in choir and being in orchestra because you know, I wasn’t the kid that was good in sports. I was the kid that was always writing songs and playing my guitar,” says RaeLynn.  “So, having those electives was always so awesome every day because it was my way to learn more about the craft that I wanted to do in the future.”

Star-packed Line-Up Unveiled for 2015 CMA Music Festival Nightly Concerts at LP Field

cma music festival

The line-up of artists performing at this year’s CMA Music Festival has been unveiled, and it includes some of the biggest super stars in country music, including Jason Aldean, Luke Bryan, Florida Georgia Line, Sam Hunt, Zac Brown Band, Eric Church, Brett Eldredge, Darius Rucker, Rascal Flatts, Cole Swindell, Keith Urban, Brad Paisley, Dierks Bentley, Thomas Rhett, Little Big Town, The Band Perry, Alan Jackson, Wynonna and many more.

 

All of the artists who participate in the festival donate their time, and they’re grateful for the fans who spend their hard-earned money to make the trip to Nashville and LP Field to see all the shows.  Tyler Hubbard says, “It means a lot to us that they want to take that hard-earned money, whatever they do.  We’ve  both had jobs where a dollar goes a long way, and we might have been making eight or nine bucks an hour doing some really bad jobs we hated.  It’s cool to have fans spend money on a ticket or spend money on a CD or buy a t-shirt.  We know fifteen bucks could be two meals.  It just goes to show how passionate our fans are and how much they believe in us, and their support goes such a long way.”

 

The specific nightly line-ups will be unveiled at a later date, but you can get all the details about the nightly LP Field concerts and all of the events happening during the 2015 CMA Music Festival at CMAfest.com.

Shania Twain is heading out on her first North American tour in more than 11 years.  She’ll kick off the 48-city Rock This Country Tour on June 5th in Seattle.  Shania says her set list for the tour will include some of her iconic hits as well as the new music she is currently working on.  In fact, she is looking forward to the tour as the only way that she will actually be able to share her new music with her fans.

 

“When you finally bring it to the public, and do it live, that’s when you’re actually sharing it together,” says Shania.  “That’s the only time you’re sharing it together because The rest of the time they’re playing it in their car or in their home and you’re not there, you’re not experiencing it with them. So I really do treasure the time I can share all the work I’ve done with them in person and their response to it.”

 

Wes Mack will open for Shania from June 5th – 28th, then Gavin DeGraw will take over the opening slot for the remainder of the tour through August 23rd.
