This week Nick Averwater talks with Franklin Willis, Community Impact Director for the Country Music Association Foundation. He has been with the foundation since August of 2022 after 13 years as a music educator.
In this episode we'll learn more about his early influences as an educator, the foundation's Music Teachers of Excellence Program, and some of the ways a music program can have a positive effect on a community. Our conversation was recorded in September, 2023.
