WON IT
  • Congrats to Jimmie Allen + Gabby Barrett on winning the ACM New Male/Female Artist of the Year Awards! I think this is the first time a Black artist has won this award EVER. Furthermore, upon researching the ACM Awards’ winners database, this appears to be the first time a Black artist has won a regularly awarded ACM Award (Entertainer, Male/Female, New Artist, Single, Album, etc.) in the entire history of the ACMs. Charley Pride was given the Pioneer Award in 1993 and was a part of the Video of the Year Award in 2016 for “Forever Country,” which featured 30 artists, including Darius Rucker. Speaking of Darius, he was awarded the “Lifting Lives” Award in 2017. Again, I could be wrong and I’ve asked the ACMs for clarification, but based on what I could find, Jimmie just broke a major barrier and this is cause for celebration.

  • Nashville’s historic Ryman Auditorium debuted a new permanent outdoor stage on PNC Plaza at Ryman Auditorium, offering another location for visitors and the local community to enjoy live music and outdoor events as part of their Ryman experience. The permanent stage is 10 feet deep and 19 feet long, and features several amenities that were not previously available on the PNC Plaza, including the capability to accommodate a five-person band. Positioned on the Fourth Avenue North side of the property, the new stage is part of a multi-year agreement with PNC Bank, which includes the stage naming rights and makes PNC the official banking sponsor of the Ryman. As with prior expansion projects on the property, the outdoor stage addition leaves the original 1892 auditorium untouched.

  • The National Museum of African American Music (NMAAM) and the CMA Foundation, the philanthropic arm of the Country Music Association, have announced a partnership that will bring the museum’s collaborative project, Music Legends & Heroes, to select high schools within Metro Nashville Public Schools. As part of the Music Legends & Heroes program, several musicians including Country artists BRELAND, Willie Jones, Reyna Roberts, and Tiera will mentor students, sharing their histories and answering questions about the industry. Focusing on engaging the students in learning the impact of African Americans on music and songwriting, the program encourages leadership, teamwork and mentorship, and will allow students to take a leadership role in organizing and implementing a live virtual performance element at their school. The CMA Foundation and NMAAM share a commitment to providing abundant resources and experiences for students through the vehicle of music. In addition to the CMA Foundation’s continued work in providing students with the opportunity to participate in making music, the organization also recognizes exposure to the music business and the creative process is how others may find their entry point into music making. Often, students do not see themselves in the music that is being taught within the four walls of a classroom. Rather than discounting or assuming students are not interested, exploring ways to both engage students authentically while sharing what is possible allows for more equitable opportunities in public schools.
