Belmont School of Music students and alumni returned to the Opry stage on April 18 to collaborate with Mickey Guyton, supplying ethereal back up vocals to her song “Hold On.” The group had a successful recording session with her on Wednesday and then taped the performance of the song at the Grand Ole Opry for the 56th Annual Academy of Country Music Awards.

This was Belmont’s second, consecutive appearance on the ACMs after performing with Kane Brown last September. Professor of Music and Director of Choral Activities Dr. Jeffery Ames prepared the students musically and attended the event as their advocate and sponsor.

The singers from Belmont included David Cistrunk, Domenica Coka, Katelyn Grigsby, Andriana Haygood, Cassandra Henriksen, Ally Jackson, Ava Jackson, Tori Kocher, Chamberlin Little, Wilson Smith, Tyra Thompson and Grayson Thurman.
