Chevy Joins CMA To Keep The Music Playing


In order to "Keep the Music Playing," Chevrolet is partnering with the Country Music Association. Chevy even donated a 2012 Camaro that will be signed by the artists walking the red carpet at the CMA awards Nov. 9. The car will then be auctioned off with the proceeds going to the music education program. On Tuesday, Nov. 9, Brad Paisley, who will be co-hosting the awards with Carrie Underwood, will sign the hood live on ABC's "Good Morning America."
To raise awareness of the need for music education, Brad will introduce Mignon Grabois and Charley Woods, students from Nashville School of the Arts. The musicians will make their television debut, while at the same time discussing Chevy's part in the program.
"Chevy is proud to support 'Keep the Music Playing,'" says Philip Caruso, the national promotions manager at Chevy. "Since 1911, Chevy has inspired musicians and artists worldwide. We are pleased to share our passion for music and foster the dreams of young, passionate musicians." 
So far, CMA has donated $4.7 million dollars for the purchase of over 4,000 instruments. And with the help of Chevy, the initiative is bound to go even further.
"Chevy has always been a great partner to CMA," says CMA Chief Executive Officer, Steve Moore. "To have them join us in raising funds for music education through 'Keep the Music Playing' proves how committed they are to our artists and the programs that are important to them and to our community."
