ACM Lifting Lives® Music Camp 2017 Kick Off Songwriters Workshop with Dierks Bentley and Ross Copperman, Seacrest Studios Visit with Bobby Bones and Karaoke with Jerrod Niemann

Encino, CA (June 26, 2017) – The 8th Annual ACM Lifting Lives® Music Camp is in session this week in Nashville, Tenn. with campers from around the country participating in a week of activities and excursions around Music City. The residential camp has the dual purpose of studying Williams syndrome while providing music enrichment through performance and education.

Two-time ACM Awards co-host Dierks Bentley and renowned songwriter/producer Ross Copperman lead campers in a songwriting session, creating “I Love Big,” an original song based on campers’ personal experiences and inspirations.

On Friday, Nationally Syndicated On-Air Personality Bobby Bones dropped by the Seacrest Studios to spend time with the campers and participated in a Q&A on-air for the Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt.

On Sunday, platinum selling recording artist Jerrod Niemann dropped by and participated in a karaoke event at Winner’s Bar & Grill with the campers and performed some of his hits.

Moved by a sweet dedication of Niemann’s smash hit “What Do You Want,” he shocked a camper by joining in on an ovation-worthy duet.

The camp is a partnership between ACM Lifting Lives and Vanderbilt Kennedy Center for Excellence in Developmental Disabilities. For more information on ACM Lifting Lives, please visit
