ACM Lifting Lives® and the Vanderbilt Kennedy Center for Excellence in Developmental Disabilities will partner again for the 3rd Annual ACM Lifting Lives Music Camp, June 18-June 22, 2012, in Nashville. Country artists Lauren Alaina, Big & Rich, Luke Bryan, Brett Eldredge and Jana Kramer, along with hit singer/songwriter David Lee Murphy and renowned producer Paul Worley, have selflessly agreed to volunteer their time with the special-needs campers throughout the week.
The camp is a week-long residential program open to individuals with developmental disabilities. The camp’s mission is to study Williams syndrome and other developmental disabilities while providing music enrichment through performance and education. ACM Lifting Lives funds the costs of the camp, in addition to providing scholarships to several campers.
During the week, campers participate in a songwriting workshop and recording session, along with other music-oriented activities, culminating in a live performance with Big & Rich at the Grand Ole Opry. Each year, the campers gain invaluable experience of visits from top-tier country music veterans. This year’s camp artist/VIP visits include:
Monday, June 18th – 9:30am-12noon: Songwriting Workshop with Brett Eldredge & David Lee Murphy
Wednesday, June 20th – 9:00am-12noon: Recording Session with Paul Worley & Luke Bryan
