Every year before the ACM Awards, Party for a Cause always gets country artists and fans in celebration mode as they play some rocking live shows in order to help out people in need through charitable initiatives.

It will be the sixth annual Party for a Cause occasion, and the invite list is stacked with tons of the hottest artists in country music today. More acts set for the bill were announced just weeks ahead of the big Vegas shenanigans, including appearances from Chris Young, Lauren Alaina, and Scotty McCreery.

Midland, Cam, Kristian Bush, Lindsay Ell, LoCash, Parmalee, Eric Paslay, Cole Swindell, RaeLynn, Chris Janson, Rodney Atkins and Rhett Akins will all be a part of the festivities as well, contributing their voices to the worthy cause for the ‘Week Vegas Goes Country.’

Throughout all of the events scheduled for Party for a Cause, the proceeds made from ticket sales and other distributions will be donated to ACM Lifting Lives. The organization gifts grants to a number of philanthropic resources like Musicians on Call, CreatiVets, Music for Seniors, Rocketown of Middle Tennessee and more. Their goal, as seen on their website, is to “improve lives through the power of music” one step at a time.

The sixth annual Party for a Cause event leads right on up to the 53rd Annual ACM Awards. The ceremony will take place in Las Vegas, and broadcast live on Sunday, April 15, starting at 8 p.m. EST on CBS.
