Hunter Hayes and Producer Ross Copperman Bring Music to Life in Studio During ACM Lifting Lives Music Camp 2015 & Scotty McCreery Visits Campers at Famous Bluebird Café
Encino, CA (June 23, 2015) – 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.
On Monday, Hunter Hayes visited the campers during a recording session, where they recorded their original song, “Wherever You Go” with producer Ross Copperman at Ocean Way Nashville Recording Studios. The campers wrote the song on Friday during a songwriting session with Ross Copperman and Heather Morgan. While in the studio, Hayes also played mandolin on the track, the first time in the history of camp that an artist has played an instrument on the track.
Later that day, campers were treated to a special performance at Nashville’s famous Bluebird Café with ACM Award winner Scotty McCreery. McCreery sang several of his hits including “Feelin’ It” and “See You Tonight” and did a Q&A with the campers.
The camp is a partnership between ACM Lifting Lives and Vanderbilt Kennedy Center for Excellence in Developmental Disabilities.
