Maren Morris Donates $70K to High School Band

Maren Morris recently donated $70,000 to a band program at East Nashville Magnet High School through her Heroes Fund.

She told The Tennessean that “public school music and theater departments (have) always held a special place in my heart.” She said that she remembers how her own high school choir had to perform in “decade-old hand me down uniforms and sight read from torn books.” She said, “Now that I am where I am, it gives me so much joy to give back money to the spark that enflamed my interest as a creative human being. With so much uncertainty for public schools this year during COVID, I wanted East Nashville Magnet to have one less worry for their fine arts department.”
