ACM Lifting Lives Music Camp welcomed campers from around the country to Nashville, to work with several country artists and songwriters for a week. The annual residential camp studies Williams syndrome while providing music enrichment through performance and education.

On Friday, Warner Music Nashville’s latest signing RaeLynn dropped by the Seacrest Studios to spend time with the campers and participated in a Q&A on-air for the Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt.

On Sunday, Montgomery Gentry dropped by and participated in a karaoke event with the campers at Winner’s Bar & Grill and performed some of their greatest hits.

Producer/songwriter Ross Copperman and artist Eric Paslay also took part, helping the campers to craft a song together.

The camp is a partnership between ACM Lifting Lives and Vanderbilt Kennedy Center for Excellence in Developmental Disabilities.
