Some big stars were made national chairs for the much anticipated National Museum of African American Music.

Darius Rucker, CeCe Winans, India Arie, and Keb Mo have teamed up to spread the importance of African American music, and its influence on our country's culture.

Rucker said he was proud to be a part of the project.

“I'll tell my fans about it, I'll tell my friends about it, because I think this project is a cultural imperative not just for Nashville but I think for the world. And I think especially - all over America, this is just really important,” said Rucker.

The state of Tennessee recently donated $2 million to the project, which was set to open n Nashville in 2018.
