    medium.mUjCJ_L-CMNDRneE8aikgH5muO_G2wE-lsin2SmPK7w

    The Academy of Country Music® announced today that for the first time Charles Kelley, of multi-platinum trio Lady Antebellum and eleven-time ACM Award winner, will host the ACM Lifting Lives® Golf Classic at TPC Las Vegas on Saturday, April 1, 2017. The “scramble” style golf tournament, being held for the sixth consecutive year at TPC Las Vegas, was initially created to meet the need for a charitable event to connect fans, sponsors and donors with industry insiders and artists. Proceeds from the tournament benefit the ACM Lifting Lives’ Diane Holcomb Emergency Relief Fund, which provides immediate relief to those in need within the music industry.

    Established by former Academy of Country Music and ACM Lifting Lives Board Chair Gayle Holcomb, in honor of her mother, the Diane Holcomb Emergency Relief Fund responds quickly to unforeseen, immediate financial needs of music related organizations and individuals. Since its inception in 2007, the Fund has distributed more than $500,000.

    “I’ve been able to participate in the ACM Lifting Lives Golf Classic tournament for the past couple of years, so I’m looking forward to stepping back up onto green again this year,” said Kelley. “Getting together with my buddies to play a round in Vegas is always the perfect way to head into the award show, especially when it’s also for a good cause.”

    Lady Antebellum will perform at the the 52nd Annual Academy of Country Music Awards, hosted by Luke Bryan and Dierks Bentley, and will be broadcast live from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas April 2nd at 8pm ET/delayed PT on CBS. The trio is nominated for ACM Vocal Group of the Year.

    Luke Bryan, Dierks Bentley, Lady Antebellum and Little Big Town are among the initial performers announced for this year’s ACM Awards. Joining them will be Jason Aldean, Florida Georgia Line (with the Backstreet Boys), Miranda Lambert and Maren Morris.

  • ACM AWARDS 2017: Some Reactions

    The members of Lady Antebellum were in New York City this morning (February 16th) to announce several of this year’s ACM Awards nominations live on CBS This Morning.

    Keith Urban leads leads with seven nominations in five categories, including his seventh for Entertainer of the Year and 10th nod for Male Vocalist of the Year. Keith’s nominated twice, as both artist and producer, in the Album of the Year category for Ripcord.  He received an additional two nominations, for both artist and producer, in the Single Record of the Year category for “Blue Ain’t Your Color,” which is also nominated in the Song of the Year category.

    “I’ve been a musician since I was 6 years old,” says Keith.  “I just love writing songs, making records and touring.  So, for the ACMS’s to recognize RIPCORD in such a big way today is humbling.  I share these nominations with everyone in my life who made it possible – and a BIG shout out to all of our fans, who came out to see us on the ripCORD tour.  Can’t wait to play for you all again soon.”

    Lauren Alaina picked up her first award nomination for New Female Vocalist of the Year, which she found out while at  the Detroit airport. “I honestly cannot believe I am nominated for New Female Vocalist. I don’t even know what to say,” exclaimed Lauren. “I’ve been waiting I guess five years for a nomination at the ACMs and I am so excited and so thankful and so humbled by the industry voting for me to get into this category. It means so much to me, and I found out in the Detroit airport while I was eating breakfast and I was really keeping it together until I Facetimed my dad to tell him and then I lost it and have cried for the last 10 minutes and then have gotten it together enough to talk about it again.”

    Jon Pardi is also nominated for his first award for New Male Vocalist of the Year; he woke up to numerous text messages on his phone.


    ACM Awards co-host Dierks Bentley received three nominations, including his fourth nomination in the Male Vocalist of the Year category.  Also, Bentley received his third nod in the Album of the Year category for Black, and his second nod in the Vocal Event of the Year category for “Different For Girls,” featuring Elle King.
