CMA Foundation grant of $150,000 to national not-for-profit Little Kids
Rock yesterday afternoon during a special visit to Miramonte Elementary
School in Los Angeles, CA. During the band’s visit they spent time
with the children at the school, playing music and brought with them a
surprise delivery of musical instruments. Miramonte Elementary
School is one of nearly 1,300 public schools across the country
supported by Little Kids Rock, which donates teacher training,
instruments, and educational resources to public school districts facing
budget cuts and elimination of music programs.
”With all three of us having children ourselves, organizations like

able to give back to young music makers and to do it with our friends at
the CMA Foundation is really humbling and the best part of what we do.”
Following their visit to the school the group paid a visit to Jimmy Kimmel Live! for
a live performance of their current single "Riot." Next week will see
the trio embark on Rascal Flatts Vegas Riot! the first ever
country residency at The Joint at Hard Rock Hotel beginning Feb. 25.
