Carrie Underwood and Maren Morris are the latest country artists taking part in ACM Lifting Lives Music Camp this week in Nashville. The residential camp has the dual purpose of studying Williams syndrome while providing music enrichment through performance and education. Campers from around the country participate in a week of activities and excursions in Music City.

On Monday (June 27), Underwood visited the campers during a recording session, where they did a Q&A and sang a few songs together. That was followed by the campers recording their original song, “Happy Together” with producer Ross Copperman at Belmont University’s Ocean Way Nashville Studios. The campers wrote the song on Thursday during a songwriting session with Copperman and Eric Paslay.

Later that day, campers were treated to a special set at the Bluebird Cafe with Maren Morris. Her performance included “My Church” and “80s Mercedes” as well as a Q&A with the campers.
