The ACM Concert – Salute To The Military Raised A Large Amount of Money To Support Our Military!
The ACM Concert – Salute to the Military, presented by NRA was a huge success! Some of country music’s hottest stars came out to perform for a great cause. The free, open-to-the-public celebration for military families and country music fans was part of THE ACM EXPERIENCE that took place on Saturday, March 31 at the Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino.
Military ID holders were invited to a reserved section at the concert, which included a very special onstage moment as three worthy military-inspired charitable organizations received donations from NRA Country Cares and ACM Lifting Lives. Folds of Honor Foundation accepted $20,000, Wounded Warrior Project received $20,000 and Nellis Air Force Base Youth Programs was presented with $10,000.
The memorable evening featured performances by ACM Song of the Year winner Lee Brice, Larry Gatlin and The Gatlin Brothers, Bradley Gaskin, JT Hodges, Kip Moore, Craig Morgan, John Rich, ACM Vocal Duo of the Year winner Thompson Square. The show was hosted by Robin Meade, singer and anchor of HLN’s “Morning Express with Robin Meade.”
THE ACM EXPERIENCE was the first-ever, free, open-to-the-public country music lifestyle event created for fans during The Week Vegas Goes Country. The fan-focused three-day event included the ACM BBQ Throwdown, ACM EXPO, the Ram Ride and Drive and more!
