ACM Lifting Lives Music Camp

Last year's ACM Lifting Lives campers perform at the Grand Ole Opry.

The 2nd Annual ACM Lifting Lives Music Camp is going on this week in Nashville, helping campers with developmental disabilities who are talented in music.

Among the fun activities on the itinerary is songwriting with Gary Allan, Odie Blackmon, and Brett James; Art N’Music with Little Big Town; and karaoke with Wynonna. The week culminates when the campers perform onstage with Darius Rucker at the Grand Ole Opry.

The Camp has a dual purpose of studying Williams syndrome and other developmental disabilities and providing music enrichment through performance and education. In 2010, ACM Lifting Lives began fully funding what was previously called the Vanderbilt Kennedy Center Music Camp.
