THE ACM (ACADEMY OF COUNTRY MUSIC) recently held its first-ever benefit concert “LIFTING LIVES AT JOE’S BAR” for ACM LIFTING LIVES. The event was held at JOE’S BAR in CHICAGO where CURB RECORDS artist LEANN RIMES performed, along with AMERICAN IDOL finalist CRYSTAL BOWERSOX.
The three-hour event sold out and raised more than $11,000. CHICAGO-based philanthropies were also recognized by ACM LIFTING LIVES with charitable gifts totaling $75,000.
JOE’S BAR owner ED WARM said, “As someone whose life revolves around the music industry, I am honored to help support ACM LIFTING LIVES in their efforts to improve lives through the power of music. The night was very special for everyone who attended and we can’t thank LeANN and CRYSTAL enough.”
The money raised will go towards the ACADEMY OF COUNTRY MUSIC, and their efforts to support organizations that are music-focused.
