This morning on ABC’s Good Morning America, the news program showed behind-the-scenes footage of CMA Fest’s LP Field in anticipation of tomorrow night’s televised production of the big four-day event. During the GMA package, the crew spoke with Little Big Town and attended the ACM Vocal Group of the Year‘s soundcheck.

Also in attendance at soundcheck were select middle and high school students who participate in Notes for Notes, a non-profit organization that funds, equips, and staffs recording studios in Boys & Girls Club locations.

Little Big Town first became involved with Notes for Notes when Karen Fairchild met the founder of the program through the Country Music Foundation. Karen told People:

We met the founder, Philip Gilley, a couple of years ago, and he explained to us what they do. They go into existing Boys & Girls Club buildings and set up studios, equipping them with guitars, drums, keyboards, mikes, anything you can think of needed to record music. The kids can come in there, create, write songs, play and lay down vocals. We know how music benefits kids – it makes them better students, focuses them and gives them purpose and gives them joy.

Tune into ABC tomorrow night, August 4th, at 8:00pm ET to watch the three-hour CMA Fest LP Field special televised concert event!
