The National Association for Music Education (NAfME) has named country music artist Sarah Darling a recipient of its “Stand for Music” Award, in recognition of her dedication to and support of music education.

The award will be presented to Darling on Saturday, June 29, 2013 in Washington, D.C. by NAfME President and Board Chair Nancy Ditmer, as part of the association’s annual National Leadership event.

NAfME’s executive director Michael A. Butera says,

“Sarah epitomizes the type of artist who truly understands the importance of music education. Her formal music training started at a young age while growing up in Mitchellville, Iowa, and her dedication to the craft of songwriting in particular has brought her significant recognition in the country music industry and beyond. NAfME is pleased to present Sarah with our ‘Stand for Music’ award for 2013. Our members – America’s music teachers – greatly appreciate her assistance in raising awareness among our elected leaders about how music education orchestrates success, both in school and beyond.”

While in the nation’s capital to receive the award, Darling will meet with legislative representatives and staff members from Tennessee and her home state of Iowa to discuss the importance of preserving music education in public schools nationwide. She will also perform later for NAfME state affiliate leaders at an acoustic concert.

Since debuting at the historic Grand Old Opry in 2011 where she was introduced by country legend, Vince Gill, Darling has been honored with the invitation to perform there over 35 times. Also featured on CONAN , FOX & Friends, ABC’s The Bachelor, CNN and many more, Darling is currently celebrating the release of her summertime single, “Little Umbrellas,” that’s now available for download on iTunes. She will perform several dates this summer as both a headlining act and opener for country music superstar, Alan Jackson.
