ACM Lifting Lives has launched a new short-form, original digital series, ACM Lifting Lives Presents The Check-In. The first two episodes of the new health-minded series feature Lindsay Ell and John Osborne of Brothers Osborne.
In each episode, artists candidly delve into their own mental health experiences and challenges over the recent years, while also sharing how music has played a crucial role in their healing process. Future conversations will feature Jimmie Allen, Chase Bryant, Brett Eldredge, Michael Ray, Caitlyn Smith, and more to come.
“ACM Lifting Lives is proud to launch The Check-In, revealing a new side of the artists whose songs so often provide comfort to us during our times of need. The series allows artists to open up and show strength through their vulnerability and in the process acknowledge that they too are susceptible to the same mental and emotional challenges as fans all over the world,” shares Lyndsay Cruz, Executive Director of ACM Lifting Lives. “We hope that through this series, we can work to normalize and de-stigmatize the conversation surrounding mental health, while continuing to highlight the uniquely important role music plays in healing.”
The ongoing series, available to watch now, will roll out new episodes regularly throughout the summer to coincide with the opening of the 2022-2023 ACM Lifting Lives grant cycle. This grant cycle moves ACM Lifting Lives’ landmark COVID-19 Response Fund into its next phase, focusing on mental and emotional health support. Preview videos of each episode will be posted across all Academy-branded social media channels, with full-length interviews at acmliftinglives.org or on the Academy’s YouTube channel.
The 2022-2023 Lifting Lives grant cycle is now open and will close on June 16. Grant recipients will be notified in summer 2022 and will receive funds shortly thereafter.
