Ever wondered what it was like to be treated like a Country Music Star? A private press conference held today at Gibson Guitar downtown Nashville released the details on a one-of-a-kind country music opportunity for fans and aspiring artists to attend a fantasy camp in Nashville and see firsthand what it is like to live the life in the spotlight.

Each camp attendee will be treated like a star from the first moment they arrive. Tour busses will pick the “camper” up at the airport, complete with roadies to load luggage and gear. The camp includes a five day stay in a private suite at Hotel Indigo, a first class hotel downtown Nashville. During the five day “camp” superstar artists Andy Griggs, Bo Bice, Rhett Akins, Darryl Worley, Deanna Carter, Henry Paul and Jessica Harp will be coaching the participants.

The star treatment will also include interaction with VIP industry executives and other artists, writers and VIP access at events. The experience will include auditions, rehearsals and the task of forming and naming a band, recording opportunities as well as the chance to write with some of Music City’s best. During the kickoff week for this new opportunity to be held May 21st through May 25th, 2009, John Rich and Ronnie Milsap will give the “campers” a private performance. The culmination of the week is the opportunity to open the show at the world famous Wildhorse Saloon in front of a ticket buying audience for hit maker Phil Vassar and one of the hottest new groups on the music scene, Lady Antebellum.

One of the fun aspects of the event is the opportunity to share the stardom with family, friends and fans through blogs and special “artist” pages on the CMT and Country Weekly and Camp Nashville websites.
Camp Nashville is open to anyone twenty one and older interested in country music at any level of music experience. The five day and five night camp will include everything from equipment and gear to prizes and an opportunity to participate in a showdown for the opening act spot.
