Star-Studded Line-Up To Grace 2021 ACM’s Party for a Cause

Sam Hunt, Old Dominion, Mickey Guyton & More Set for ACM’s Party for a Cause
by

This upcoming August 24, the Academy of Country Music’s Party for a Cause is making its comeback at Nashville’s Ascend Amphitheater. Unlike the previous years wherein the concert festivities are held in multiple venues in Las Vegas for multiple days, this year it would be a one-night historic debut concert in the Music City, Nashville. The fundraiser event will benefit the ACM’s Lifting Lives Foundation, the organization’s charitable arm, which has raised over $7 million for more than 150 causes since 2006. 

According to ACM’s Lifting Lives Foundation Executive Director Lyndsay Cruz, they are definitely thrilled to be back to celebrate after last year’s pause due to the global health crisis. The foundation has worked tirelessly the past year to virtually raise money for their COVID-19 Response Fund, which has been able to successfully distribute over $3.5 million to members of the Country Music community who are in need. But although they are proud of the aid they have provided, they are still excited to continue lifting lives again with the power of music while they welcome back all of the fans.

The party will be hosted by SiriusXM’s The Highway personality Storme Warren featuring a star-studded line-up including Sam Hunt, Old Dominion, Mickey Guyton, Lee Brice, and Brett Eldredge. Tenille Townes and Trisha Yearwood will also make an appearance, while other special guests will be announced at a later date. General on-sale tickets for the concert already opened last Wednesday, July 21st, on Ticketmaster. The price ranges between $49.50 and $114.50, with VIP packages also available. 

Following the Party for a Cause is the 14th annual ACM Honors set on August 25th at the historic Ryman Auditorium. The ceremony will be hosted by Carly Pearce and will be honoring Toby Keith, Loretta Lynn, and Luke Combs. 

Aside from the ACM, country music artists have also been involved in different charitable endeavors. Jake Owen recently hosted Jake Owen & Friends: A Concert Made for You at the Ryman Auditorium with guests Travis Tritt and David Lee Murphy. A portion of the ticket sales was given to the Country Music Association Foundation, which provides aid for music teachers and students. And this August 17, Darius Rucker will hold his 12th annual Darius and Friends concert to benefit St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
