Darryl Worley, Rhett Akins, American Idol runner-up Bo Bice and BlackHawk’s Henry Paul were among the artists present Thursday morning (Feb. 26) for the announcement of CMT Camp Nashville, described as a “one-of-a-kind country music opportunity for the country fan to experience first-hand the life of a country music superstar.” The press conference took place at Gibson Showroom in downtown Nashville. The multi-artist country fantasy camp takes place May 21-25 and will include master classes with top-notch vocal and songwriting mentors, the opportunity to write and record original material in a professional studio and interaction with industry executives and artists. Campers will receive direct coaching from Worley, Akins, Bice, Paul, Deana Carter, Andy Griggs, Jessica Harp (of the Wreckers) and others. John Rich and Ronnie Milsap will provide private concerts during the camp. Registrants will be eligible to perform during a concert at the Wildhorse Saloon to be headlined by Lady Antebellum and Phil Vassar. The registration fee is $8,500 for participants and $1,000 for spouses. The camp is sponsored by CMT, Country Weekly magazine, Gibson guitars, Shoney’s Catering, the Nashville Convention and Visitors Bureau, the Wildhorse Saloon, the Nashville Palace and Nashville Cowboy.
