NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – Lots of young people are hoping to get into the music business one day, and now the Country Music Association is helping the next generation learn the ropes.

Singer-songwriter Cam was a part of the CMA EDU Executive Summit on Tuesday.

The association held two days of workshops at Belmont University with college students from around the country.

They learned all about the music business-songwriting, making music, management, publicity, and touring as a musician.

“There’s so much learning that goes on, and the learning curve is so steep in those first couple of years. It’s really hard. And being in your 20’s is hard enough as it is,” Cam told News 2.

“Just reminding people that there’s a light at the end of the tunnel, here’s a couple tricks to remember how to be you, while you’re going through all of that,” she continued.

Cam will also appear on the CMA Music Festival Country’s Night to Rock, which airs on News 2 on August 3.
