ACM Lifting Lives Music Camp Celebrates 10 Years

The 10th Annual ACM Lifting Lives Music Camp was held this week in Nashville, with campers from around the country participating in activities and excursions around Music City.

On Monday, Tenille Townes and Chris Young visited the campers during a recording session at Belmont University’s Ocean Way Nashville Studios, where the campers did a Q&A with Townes and Young and recorded their original song, “The Way You Love,” with songwriter/producer Ross Copperman and singer/songwriter Joy Williams.

On Tuesday, ACM Lifting Lives® Music Camp concluded with a final touching performance at the Grand Ole Opry with Michael Ray, who joined the campers to sing their original song “The Way You Love,” which the campers wrote just days ago with Ross Copperman, Lady Antebellum and Joy Williams.

The residential camp has the dual purpose of studying Williams syndrome while providing the campers with music enrichment through performance and education. In addition to the songwriting session that kicked off Camp last week, campers enjoyed a fun-filled karaoke night at Winner’s Bar & Grill with Frankie Ballard, a trip to the Seacrest Studios with Caylee Hammack, a meet and greet at Wildhorse Saloon with Hunter Hayes, and a visit and performance by Jessie James Decker at The Bluebird Cafe.

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