Jerrod Niemann has announced the establishment of his new nonprofit organization, Free the Music USA.

Founded on the belief that every child should have the opportunity to explore music, FTMUSA is focused on finding used instruments and distributing them to children who couldn’t afford them otherwise. The charity will also use its funds to make donations to other music-based charities.

“Jerrod’s passion for helping people is just as strong as his passion for creating great music,” says Shannon Shryne, a member of FTMUSA’s board. “Free the Music USA will harness that philanthropic energy and truly make a difference in so many ways. The possibilities are extraordinary and we’re excited to get started!”

Most recently, the charity is partnering with the Nashville-based organization Songs for Sound, which helps the deaf community by providing resources for cochlear implants and rehabilitation and helps spread awareness. The two groups, along with the Academy of County Music, are sending three recent implant recipients to Las Vegas for the 2014 ACM Awards to meet Niemann and attend the ACM Party for a Cause Festival.

Niemann released his album ‘High Noon’ on Tuesday, March 25.
