For five years running, the Academy of Country Music has celebrated more than just the annual awards show. In the days leading up to the big ceremony, numerous stages and events take place featuring many of country's best talents. During this year's ACM Party for a Cause, Chris Stapleton, Lady Antebellum and Kelsea Ballerini lead the pack with performances expected for the upcoming festivities, slated for March 30 through April 2. Industry and fans events pepper Las Vegas, including venues like the ACM Pool Party for a Cause, the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino and the Songwriter Showcase.

Additional performers are Cole Swindell, Maddie & Tae, William Michael Morgan, Dylan Scott, Tucker Beathard, Florida Georgia Line, Jake Owen, Lee Brice, Dustin Lynch, Brothers Osborne, Big & Rich, Kip Moore, Jake Owen, Clay Walker, Billy Currington, former Hot Chelle Rae frontman Ryan Follese, LoCash, Michael Tyler and Brett Young.

The organization later revealed a Songwriters Showcase, to feature Dierks Bentley, Cam, Brandy Clark, Dean Dillon, Shane McAnally, Luke Laird and Ashley Gorley. SiriusXM's Storme Warren will host the event at the Pearl at The Palms Casino Resort.

“Fourteen years ago, when the Academy moved the Awards to Las Vegas, we kicked off a decade of wide-ranging special events for fans including a motorcycle ride through Las Vegas and the surrounding area, a golf tournament at a prestigious club, concerts on Fremont Street, games and a country lifestyle marketplace and loads of live country music performances. That’s how The Week Vegas Goes Country earned its moniker," explains Ed Warm, Chairman of ACM Lifting Lives and Co-Chairman of the ACM Events Committee, in a press statement. "This year, we’re going back to our roots with the evolution of ACM Party for a Cause events taking place throughout Las Vegas, all benefiting ACM Lifting Lives and the good work of the many worthy organizations Lifting Lives supports through grants and more. It feels good to align all of our auxiliary events surrounding the ACM Awards with a philanthropic purpose the fans have always embraced.”

George Couri, Co-Chairman of the ACM Events Committee, adds,  “ACM fans have demanded more events, more artist engagement, more variety. Some of our fans clearly like the more intimate environments compared to the big festivals, so this year we will give them that version celebrating more artists up close and in their faces. From songwriter rounds to fun party nights out, with this schedule there will be plenty for fans to dive into all day every day.”

All shows and events that week benefit ACM Lifting Lives, the philanthropic arm of the Academy of Country Music aimed at using music to comfort and heal. The campaign raises funds for music-related therapy and education programs for those members of the community face hardships--through the Diane Holcomb Emergency Relief Fund.
