Carrie Underwood, George Strait, Florida Georgia Line, Lady Antebellum, The Band Perry and Merle Haggard will perform in an ACM special to be aired in May. The Academy of Country Music announced the special, “ACM Presents: An All-Star Salute to the Troops”, on February 20.
During the special, country music artists will perform in honor of our nation’s veterans and active military service personnel. The show will also feature stories of servicemen and women who have shown incredible bravery and integrity.
“ACM Presents: An All-Star Salute to the Troops” will be recorded on April 7, while artists are still in Las Vegas following the ACM Awards on the 6th. However, the special will not be shown until May 20. It is set to air on CBS from 8:00-10:00 p.m. Central.
Fans may attend the taping of the show at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas by purchasing tickets through Ticketmaster. Ticket prices are $105, $155, and $205 and will benefit the ACM Lifting Lives charity.
ACM Lifting Lives works to develop and finance music-related programs. These might include providing music education in schools and camps, funding programs that use music therapy to help wounded military personnel, and using music to help those with disabilities. Donations can be made to ACM Lifting Lives any time by visiting ACMLiftingLives.org.
In addition to Carrie Underwood, Florida Georgia Line and the other artists already announced, more country music artists will be joining the lineup in the near future.
