Encino, CA (June 26, 2014) – 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 Wednesday, reigning ACM Song of the Year winner Lee Brice visited the campers during a recording session, where they recorded their original song, “Bright Eyes” with producer Ross Copperman at Ocean Way Nashville Recording Studios. The campers wrote the song on Monday during a songwriting session with The Band Perry. Later that day, ACM New Artist nominee Brett Eldredge and multiple ACM award winner Wynonna dropped by and participated in a karaoke event at Winner’s with the campers.
The camp is a partnership between ACM Lifting Lives and Vanderbilt Kennedy Center for Excellence in Developmental Disabilities. This year marks the 10th anniversary of Vanderbilt Kennedy Center’s Music Camp and the 5th year that ACM Lifting Lives has been involved.
