ACM Lifting Lives Presents The Check-In Digital Series

ACM Lifting Lives®, the philanthropic arm of the Academy of Country Music®, announced the official launch of its short-form original digital series ACM Lifting Lives Presents The Check-In, with the first episodes featuring Michael Ray, Jimmie Allen, Brett Eldredge, Lindsay Ell, John Osborne of Brothers Osborne.

“Music saved my life, time and time again,” Osborne said in his Check-In, which Ell echoed in her Check-In: “I think music is so powerful and is such a beautiful healing thing for mental health." In each episode, artists candidly delve deep into their own mental health experiences and challenges over the recent few years, while sharing how music has played a crucial role in their healing process.

The ongoing series, which has already been embraced across the industry and received recognition from major news outlets, including ABC News and Good Morning America, will roll out new episodes regularly to coincide with the opening of the 2022-2023 ACM Lifting Lives grant cycle. This grant cycle moves ACM Lifting Lives’ landmark COVID-19 Response Fund into its next phase, focusing on mental and emotional health support. 

“ACM Lifting Lives is proud to launch The Check-In, revealing a new side of the artists whose songs so often provide comfort to us during our times of need. The series allows artists to open up and show strength through their vulnerability and in the process acknowledge that they too are susceptible to the same mental and emotional challenges as fans all over the world,” said Lyndsay Cruz, Executive Director of ACM Lifting Lives. “We hope that through this series, we can work to normalize and de-stigmatize the conversation surrounding mental health, while continuing to highlight the uniquely important role music plays in healing.”

Full-length interviews are available for viewing at The Check-In | ACM Lifting Lives and on the Academy’s official YouTube channel.
