The ACM concert, SALUTE TO THE MILITARY, presented by NRA COUNTRY, raised $50,000 to support the military. The free, open-to-the-public celebration for military families and Country music fans was part of THE ACM EXPERIENCE that took place on SATURDAY (3/31) at MANDALAY BAY RESORT & CASINO in LAS VEGAS.
Military ID holders were invited to a reserved section for the concert, which included a very special onstage moment as three military-inspired charitable organizations received donations from NRA COUNTRY CARES and ACM LIFTING LIVES. FOLDS OF HONOR FOUNDATION accepted $20,000, WOUNDED WARRIOR Project received $20,000, and NELLIS AIR FORCE BASE YOUTH PROGRAMS was presented with $10,000.
LEE BRICE, LARRY GATLIN AND THE GATLIN BROTHERS, BRADLEY GASKIN, JT HODGES, KIP MOORE, CRAIG MORGAN, JOHN RICH and THOMPSON SQUARE performed. The show was hosted by HLN’s ROBIN MEADE.
