The gala will consist of two shows taking place simultaneously at the OMNI DALLAS HOTEL and the FORT WORTH ZOO. The OMNI DALLAS HOTEL gala will feature headliner LADY ANTEBELLUM and a special performance by HUNTER HAYES. The FORT WORTH ZOO will feature headliner KEITH URBAN and a special performance by LITTLE BIG TOWN. ENTERTAINMENT TONIGHT host NANCY O'DELL will join BROOKS and YEARWOOD to co-host the FORT WORTH gala.
ACM LIFTING LIVES will be donating funds raised from the gala to several TEXAS-based organizations including GARTH BROOKS’ charity, TEAMMATES FOR KIDS and the CHILD LIFE ZONES in CHILDREN'S HEALTH OF DALLAS and COOK CHILDREN'S OF FORT WORTH.
“The ACADEMY has an almost 50-year history of charitable giving and wonderful relationships with GARTH and TRISHA," said ACM CEO BOB ROMEO. "When GARTH called about hosting this event, it was the culmination of years of hard work, and furthers the missions of our organizations -- healing through the power of music, and improving lives by connecting fans, artists and the industry."
