ACM Lifting Lives Music Camp is in session this 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 Monday, Hunter Hayes visited the campers during a recording session, where they recorded their original song, “Wherever You Go” with producer Ross Copperman at Ocean Way Nashville Recording Studios.  The campers wrote the song on Friday during a songwriting session with Ross Copperman and Heather Morgan. While in the studio, Hayes also played mandolin on the track, the first time in the history of camp that an artist has played an instrument on the track.

Later that day, campers were treated to a special performance at Nashville’s famous Bluebird Café with ACM Award winner Scotty McCreery.  McCreery sang several of his hits including “Feelin’ It” and “See You Tonight” and did a Q&A with the campers.

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

Scotty McCreery performed “Take Me Out to the Ball Game” during the Seventh Inning Stretch of the New York Mets vs. St. Louis Cardinals game at New York City’s Citi Field on May 19th.

This is sure to be one of the sports topics that the ACM and CMT Music Award winner will discuss when he appears live today (May 20) on “SI Now,” the daily online Sports Illustrated news show broadcast at SI.com between 1:00-1:30 PM/ET.

The singer/songwriter, who has been in the studio recently working on new music, will also appear on the “Road Trip with Anna Kooiman” segment of “FOX and Friends” which will air on May 28 at 7:40 AM/ET on the FOX News Channel. Kooiman visited McCreery and his band during their soundcheck and performance in Fargo, North Dakota earlier this year to learn how to be his guitar tech. Viewers can see how well she handled the job when the segment airs next week.

McCreery will be the special guest on the upcoming Rascal Flatts RIOT Tour 2015 this summer, beginning May 30 in Noblesville, IN at the Klipsch Music Center. The tour will also feature opening act RaeLynn.
