Luke Combs, CMA Foundation Award $1 Million To Houston School System

Luke Combs is handing out big money.

The "When It Rains It Pours" singer recently joined the CMA Foundation in Houston, TX to present a check for $1 million to the Houston Independent School District for music education support. The donation came in partnership with Mr. Holland's Opus Foundation and Music Rising.

Thank you @HollandsOpusFdn & @CountryMusic Foundation for your support of music programs & instruments @HoustonISD! @HISDFineArt #ArtsEd

The cause is close to Luke's heart given his own music education. "From elementary school all the way through college, I was involved in music programs and chorus through my schools and that has impacted so much of my life and career," he says through his publicist. "I'm grateful the CMA Foundation asked me to be a part of [this event]. Giving these students the opportunity to discover and learn about music is a really cool [and] incredible [thing] to be a part of."

Look for Luke on the 51st CMA Awards live from Nashville November 8th, where he's up for New Artist of the Year. Follow Luke on Twitter here and Facebook here.
