The 8th Annual ACM Lifting Lives® Music Camp took place in Nashville last week, 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.
Two-time ACM Awards co-host Dierks Bentley and renowned songwriter/producer Ross Copperman lead campers in a songwriting session, creating “I Love Big,” an original song based on campers’ personal experiences and inspirations.
On Friday, Nationally Syndicated On-Air Personality Bobby Bones 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, platinum selling recording artist Jerrod Niemann dropped by and participated in a karaoke event at Winner’s Bar & Grill with the campers and performed some of his hits.
Moved by a sweet dedication of Niemann’s smash hit “What Do You Want,” he shocked a camper by joining in on an ovation-worthy duet.
The camp is a partnership between ACM Lifting Lives and Vanderbilt Kennedy Center for Excellence in Developmental Disabilities.
