Dustin Lynch and CMT are teaming up to encourage people in rural, economically-depressed areas of the country to head back to school. The CMT Empowering Education initiative hopes to shine a light on the role community colleges play in giving people the skills they need to advance their careers and pursue their dreams.

Dustin says, "Education has always been important to me and to my family. In fact, I made a promise to my family that I would graduate from college before pursuing a career in music. I'm proud to be working with CMT’s Empowering Education campaign to help others find their path to higher education and to new careers.”

Dustin and CMT hope to get 500 people to sign up in support of the initiative at Thunderclap.it using the search term "CMT." Ten of those people who sign up will win a Dustin Lynch prize pack, including his new album, Where's It At . One lucky winner will get a VIP trip to Nashville to attend the 2015 CMT Music Awards with Dustin.
