– The Academy of Country Music announced today the return of its annual ACM Party for a Cause benefiting ACM Lifting Lives, debuting on Aug. 24 for the first time ever in Nashville.
Sam Hunt, Trisha Yearwood, Old Dominion, Lee Brice, Brett Eldredge, Mickey Guyton and special guests, Tenille Townes and more to be announced. The concert will be at the Ascend Amphitheater in Nashville, preceding the 14th Annual Academy of Country Music Honors celebration on Aug. 25 from Nashville's Ryman Auditorium.
Proceeds from ACM Party for a Cause will benefit ACM Lifting Lives, the charitable arm of the Academy. Lifting Lives funds music health programs while also serving members of the music community who face unexpected hardships through its Diane Holcomb Emergency Relief Fund.
"ACM Lifting Lives is thrilled to be back and celebrating Party for a Cause with a historic debut in Nashville," said Lyndsay Cruz, ACM Lifting Lives Executive Director. "ACM Lifting Lives has worked tirelessly this year in finding innovative ways to raise funds virtually for the ACM Lifting Lives COVID-19 Response Fund – successfully distributing more than $3.5 million to members of the country music community in need. While we are proud of the aid we have been able to provide, we are excited to rock Nashville and to once again lift lives with the power of music. Party for a Cause is a terrific celebration of live music and charitable giving, and we look forward to bringing it to Music City for the first time while welcoming back all our fans."
