ACM Lifting Lives Music Camp was in session this past week in Nashville, Tenn. 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.

On Wednesday, reigning ACM Song of the Year winner Lee Brice visited the campers during a recording session, where they recorded their original song, “Bright Eyes” with producer Ross Copperman at Ocean Way Nashville Recording Studios. The campers wrote the song on Monday during a songwriting session with The Band Perry.

Later that day, ACM New Artist nominee Brett Eldredge and multiple ACM award winner Wynonna dropped by and participated in a karaoke event at Winner’s with the campers.

The camp is a partnership between ACM Lifting Lives and Vanderbilt Kennedy Center for Excellence in Developmental Disabilities. This year marks the 10th anniversary of Vanderbilt Kennedy Center’s Music Camp and the 5th year that ACM Lifting Lives has been involved.

Lee Brice to Release New Music this Fall

Lee Brice I Don't Dance

Lee Brice will release his third studio album, I Don’t Dance, on September 9th. According to Rolling Stone, the project is very different for Lee, infusing lots of different sounds and influences.

“One thing I tried to do on this record is a lot of classic sounds, like on Bruno Mars’ record, but with a lot of hip sounds that he just created in his mind, or whatever it may have been. I love putting classic steel guitar with a classic banjo — all those sounds meshed with new sounds I created in my head.”

I’ve been sequencing this record for a year and a half. Every night, I lie in bed and think about sequencing this album,” he says, rolling his eyes. “I don’t know why I’m so obsessed with that, but I love records that flow and never lose you. It’s like going to a Garth Brooks show. He will come out and do four or five uptempos, and then the show rests…. And then he comes back out, in your face again. A record should be that way, too.”

Who’s excited for new music from Lee??

More than 10,000 rowdy fans packed downtown Nashville’s lower Broadway last night as the fourth annual “Music City Gives Back” concert hosted by country superstar Rodney Atkins took over for a pre-CMA Music Fest bash benefiting W.O. Smith Music School. The concert, which featured Atkins and headlining act Lee Brice as well as Jana Kramer, Dustin Lynch and Josh Thompson, lasted for more than five hours and wrapped shortly before midnight on June 3rd. Fans were treated to several surprise appearances throughout the night, as Justin Moore joined Lynch on stage for a performance midway through the show and Tyler Farr and Jerrod Niemann joined Brice late in the night for a crowd-riling rendition of Hank Williams Jr.’s “Family Tradition.”

Atkins and “America’s Morning Show” Host Blair Garner emceed the event, which was sponsored by Carl Black Chevrolet and Wrangler®. Cumulus Media stations NASH-FM and WSM-FM were also supporting on-site.

“I’m grateful to all of the artists and sponsors who came out last night to support W.O. Smith and make this show such a huge success,” said Atkins. “It was amazing to look all the way down Broadway and see it just packed with fans. It was a great night of fun and music for a great cause.”

Founded in 1984, W.O. Smith Music School provides music instruction to children from low-income families for the nominal cost of 50 cents per lesson. An all-volunteer teaching artist faculty of 220 gives music lessons to more than 650 students annually. Instruments and all learning materials are loaned to the students at no additional expense.

Atkins is currently working on his fifth studio album for Curb Records and performing headlining dates across the country. For more information, please visit www.RodneyAtkins.com
