lParty For A Cause
The Academy of Country Music’s Party for a Cause returns in 2021, benefitting charitable arm ACM Lifting Lives and, as an added bonus, takes place for the first time in Nashville at Ascend Amphitheater August 24.
Hosted by SiriusXM’s The Highway host Storme Warren, Party for a Cause will feature performances by artists including Lee Brice, Brett Eldredge, Mickey Guyton, Sam Hunt, Old Dominion and special guests, Tenille Townes, Trisha Yearwood and more to be announced.
Party for a Cause precedes the 14th Annual Academy of Country Music Honors celebration the next day at Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium. Prior events took place in Las Vegas, but were canceled in 2020 because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
“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.”
Presale for ACM professional members begins at 10 a.m CT July 20 via Ticketmaster. A presale code will be emailed to professional members prior to the onsale. General public onsale begins at 10 a.m. CT July 21, also at Ticketmaster. A limited number of VIP package tickets will become available at the same time, and include an early, dedicated entry to the event, a premium seat in the first four rows and VIP lounge access with a private bar.
Through partnerships with artists and strong ties in the music industry, ACM 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 has funded national music therapy programs serving various mental and physical health organizations. Some of the recipients have included patients at children’s hospitals and other healthcare facilities, recovering veterans, people with Williams syndrome and individuals with mental illness.
