The Academy of Country Music is providing an inside look at some of country's biggest hits with its annual ACM Stories, Songs & Stars event on Friday, April 5 at the MGM Grand Marquee Ballroom in Las Vegas, Nevada. Get tickets to this one of a kind songwriters' event here at AXS.

As part of the Academy's Party for a Cause lineup, ACM Stories, Songs & Stars puts fans in the same room with the people who wrote and performed some of the year's most memorable tracks. You can watch a recap of last year's event by playing the video above; it's a unique opportunity to learn more about songwriting from the people who do it best, and even if you're not a songwriter, you can gain so much more understanding about what goes into a song and how some of country's top artists work.

Proceeds from the event benefit ACM Lifting Lives, which is the charitable arm of the Academy of Country Music. The organization is celebrating its 11th year in 2009, continuing its mission of improving lives through the power of music, while also contributing to other worthy causes in the Nashville community such as disaster relief.
