The ACM Lifting Lives Music Camp continued this week with campers hitting the studio with Lee Brice . During the session at Nashville's Ocean Way Studios, the campers joined Lee to sing "Bright Eyes," the song they wrote Monday with The Band Perry .

"Every day you learn something new, and you learn a new experience every day, and this is a big one for me," Lee says. "I think they might be some of the most talented musicians. They have big hearts, and they are so bright."

The campers at the ACM Lifting Lives Music Camp all have Williams Syndrome, a genetic disorder that leads to an intense interest in music. Their musical week continued Wednesday with Brett Eldredge and Wynonna leading the campers in a karaoke session.

Says Brett, "It's not about disability out here. It's not about anything. It's just about everybody sharing a common ground of music and having fun, and that's a beautiful thing."

The ACM Lifting Lives campers will cap off the week performing "Bright Eyes" on the Grand Ole Opry Friday night with newcomer Chris Janson . The Swon Brothers and J.T. Harding have also visited with the campers this week.
