EMI Records Nashville recording artist Eric Paslay welcomed three CMA Music Teachers of Excellence to the Grand Ole Opry stage during his performance Wednesday in Nashville.

In honor of his new single “Angels In This Town,” Paslay is making “Angel Visits” across the country where he highlights local residents making an impact in their community. In Music City, that meant meeting with educators Tracy Roberts, Jason Walsh, and Franklin Willis backstage before his performance and giving them the VIP treatment as his guests.

Upon hearing the teachers were backstage, Kristian Bush also took time to meet the trio and discuss his passion for keeping music education in schools.

Rogers, Walsh, and Willis were honored as part of the inaugural class of CMA Music Teachers of Excellence, 50 educators from Metro Nashville Public Schools who were presented with a $2,000 individual grant from the CMA Foundation’s $1 million donation to MNPS in 2016.

Since 2006, CMA and the CMA Foundation have donated more than $13.6 million to support quality, sustainable music education programs across the country, touching the lives of 1 million students.
