"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," said Henry Donahue, Executive Director of Save The Music. "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."
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.
Over the last two-and-a-half decades, Save The Music has donated more than $70 million in instruments and music technology equipment to more than 2,500 public schools nationwide.
