FREE THE MUSIC USA

Dedicated to enhancing lives, with a focus on children, through the beauty of giving music and music instruments. FTMUSA recognizes that music expresses many things and has many effects: it can be a refuge, a healer, a gift, a friend, a passion, a tear, a smile and more. Music belongs to everyone and FTMUSA believes every child should have the opportunity to explore the music inside oneself and helps put instruments in the hands of those who cannot afford them on their own.

Established in 2014, with a vision to collect used instruments and recycle them by giving them to children and teens in need, FTMUSA also will also make spontaneous and varied donations throughout the year.

Sea Gayle Records/Arista Nashville hitmaker Jerrod Niemann recently followed his RIAA Gold-certified multi-week No. 1 smash, “Drink to That All Night,” with his High Noon album’s second single, “Buzz Back Girl.” Niemann co-wrote eight of the 13 tracks on High Noon, the follow-up to his acclaimed, musically adventurous 2012 release, Free the Music.  Niemann’s chart-topping major-label debut, 2010’s Judge Jerrod & The Hung Jury, produced the No. 1 smash and RIAA-certified Platinum digital single, “Lover, Lover,” and the Top 5 and RIAA-certified Gold digital single, “What Do You Want.” His sophomore release, Free The Music, hit shelves last year and featured the Top 15 single “Shinin’ On Me” and the poignant ballad “Only God Could Love You More.” Niemann has quickly become a fan and industry favorite, earning award nominations from the ACM, CMA, CMT and the American Country Awards, while headlining his own shows and touring with such artists as Dierks Bentley, Brad Paisley and Keith Urban.
