The CMA Music Teacher of Excellence was held at the City Winery April 26, 2016. During the event, 50 music teachers from Metro Nashville Public Schools were recognized as a Teacher of Excellence and received a $2,000 grant from the CMA Foundation. The foundation and its operating entity the Country Music Association, have donated $10 million to Metro Nashville Public Schools’ music education programs in the past 10 years.
Not only was the night special for the recipients, their families, and schools, but also for host Brett Eldredge. Eldridge was accompanied by his middle school teacher, Judy Carroll. “He asked, ‘Do you want me to sing this is in my little boy voice or my big man voice?’” Carroll recalled. “And that was just the beginning. He could do it either way. I was just captivated.”
Eldredge said music programs improved his people skills, gave him confidence and taught him to turn fear into a performance tool. He wanted to get involved with the CMA Foundation’s goal of supporting music education programs when he heard that funding for the arts was being cut and that choral programs could turn into volunteer-only, after-school meetings.
The CMA Foundation compiled its list of honorees through an application process that was augmented by testimonials from students’ parents and the principals and their respective schools. More than 80 applications were reviewed and winners were chosen by an anonymous panel of music education professionals.

So your dreams of having an intimate, 12 person wedding have been thrown out the window as you are finding it impossible to cut down your guest list. We get it. Here are some ways to make your 300 person wedding feel a little more intimate, a little more like what you had envisioned.
Select a Cozy Venue. Just because you have 300 guests doesn’t mean you have to host your wedding reception in a ballroom. Example, our main concert venue hosts up to 300 wedding guests. Our building has a warm, cozy feel, while still being an upscale, elegant venue.
Sexy Lighting. Lighting is everything! Lighting determines the overall feel of your wedding. It creates ambience, and can turn a neat venue into a fabulous space. Use lighting to your advantage to put the final touches on that wedding feel you are going for.
Add a Side Space. Create an area for guests to escape – whether this is a lounge area in the reception room, or flipping the cocktail space into a lounge once reception doors are open. Let your guests connect with their loved ones who they might not have seen in a while.
A Weekend Affair. Why should your wedding be just one day? Make a weekend out of it! This will create more opportunities for your guests to connect with each other, you, and the city.
Personalization. Just because you have a large wedding doesn’t mean you need to lose your style or personality. Take the time to personalize every aspect of your wedding – I promise your guests will notice.
It seems as though since the beginning of time, fall and summer have been wedding season. But why not spring? What’s wrong with a sunny, cool, wedding date from March to June? I can name about seven reasons why Spring should be the new wedding season.
- Spring is all about revival, rebirth, and renewal. That sounds like the perfect time to start a new life with the one you love.
- Flowers are in bloom! You can have any flower of your dreams in your bouquet. There is nothing worse that being in love with tulips and being told that they are not in season for your October wedding (or an added expense from your florist who can get them, but they are just going to be $30.00 a stem and not look very alive.)
- Seersucker and tan suits. What southern girl doesn’t love her man in a classic seersucker suit?
- Color. You can choose any color you want as your accent wedding color – nothing is off limits in the spring. Neutrals, vibrant blue, pastels, anything!
- Embrace the rain. Yes, we know a Spring rain is always in the back of a bride and groom’s mind, but embrace it! Buy everyone matching umbrellas and rain boots and make it a part of your wedding day photos.
- Peonies are in season. You shouldn’t need a seventh reason.
- The temperature is perfect. No need to worry about sweating on your wedding day (or mosquitoes). The average springtime temperature in the south is 65 degrees, which sounds pretty perfect to us!
