Jake Owen, Jerrod Niemann, Love and Theft, Lauren Alaina and songwriter Dallas Davison will volunteer their time as part of the 4th Annual ACM Lifting Lives Music Camp June 23-29 in Nashville. The camp, a partnership between ACM Lifting Lives and the Vanderbilt Kennedy Center for Excellence in Developmental Disabilities, is a week-long program for individuals with Williams syndrome.
The camp has a dual purpose of allowing researchers to study Williams syndrome while providing music enrichment through performance and education. ACM Lifting Lives funds the costs of the camp and provides scholarships to several campers, which allows the Vanderbilt Kennedy Center to advance its mission of improving the lives of individuals with developmental disabilities and their families.
Campers will participate in a songwriting workshop and recording session, along with other music-oriented activities. Camp will culminate in a live performance with Jerrod Niemann at the Grand Ole Opry. Prior camps have featured artist visits from Gary Allan, Kix Brooks, Luke Bryan, Brett Eldredge, Jana Kramer, Little Big Town, LeAnn Rimes, Darius Rucker, Carrie Underwood and more.
