The Academy of Country Music will bring its Lifting Lives Music Camp to Nashville for a week-long residential program from June 24-28. Thirty musically-inclined campers from around the country with Williams syndrome will take part in the program.
The 4th annual camp will include celebrity involvement, beginning when campers participate in a songwriting workshop with Dallas Davidson and Jerrod Niemann, to craft a song from concept to final wording. At Ocean Way Studios, campers will have the opportunity to record the song during a recording session with Jake Owen and producer Ross Copperman.
Additionally, campers can sing karaoke onstage at Winner’s Bar with Love and Theft and perform live with Jerrod Niemann at the Grand Ole Opry on Friday, June 28. At the Wildhorse Saloon, campers will gather to share stories about their camp experience with Lauren Alaina.
ACM Lifting Lives funds the costs of the Camp, enabling the Vanderbilt Kennedy Center for Excellence in Developmental Disabilities to advance its mission of improving the lives of individuals with Williams syndrome and their families through research, training and service.
Williams syndrome is a genetic condition that is present at birth, characterized by medical problems including cardiovascular disease, developmental delays and learning disabilities. These occur side by side with striking verbal abilities, highly social personalities and an affinity for music.
