Nashville’s Belmont University to receive $58 million music college gift from Mike Curb

In its 50th year, Belmont University’s Mike Curb College of Entertainment and Music Business has announced a significant evolution of its literal and inspirational music industry footprint.

During a “Belmont at the Opry” Grand Ole Opry show featuring Belmont-graduated talent including Trisha Yearwood, Tyler Hubbard, Hailey Whitters, and others, the institution announced a $58 million gift from philanthropist and Nashville music executive Mike Curb to expand the institution’s presence on music row.

The gift is the largest in University history. It will support the renovation of existing buildings and the construction of a new state-of-the-art Music Row facility.

“Mike Curb’s remarkable generosity and partnership with Belmont over many years has been invaluable in advancing entertainment and music business education,” said University President Dr. Greg Jones. “This latest transformational gift solidifies Belmont’s position at the forefront of developing the next generation of music industry leaders. We are profoundly grateful to Mike and Linda for their continued investment in Belmont’s mission.”
