The Academy of Country Music’s Party for a Cause will highlight country music’s most distinguished songwriters when the ACM Stories, Songs & Stars takes place in Las Vegas. During “The Week Vegas Goes Country,” the ACM will celebrate the writers behind the songs when Lee Brice, Ashley Gorley, Shane McAnally, Lori McKenna and Thomas Rhett take to the stage.

In addition to the previously announced guests, fans will be treated to performances from soon-to-be-revealed performers, including the ACM Songwriter of the Year nominees. The songwriters will sit alongside the artists who recorded their songs and share the stories behind those tunes. The night won’t be complete without a few surprise guests also taking the stage.

The ACM Stories, Songs & Stars event will take place at The Joint in the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino on April 13, 2018, just two days before the 53rd annual Academy of Country Music Awards. Part of the proceeds from the evening will benefit ACM Lifting Lives, which strives to help others through the power of music.

Tickets for the event are currently on sale at

The 53rd ACM Awards, Country Music’s Party of the Year, will broadcast live on Sunday, April 15 from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas 8:00 PM ET/delayed PT on the CBS Television Network.
