The Academy of Country Music announced today (March 11) that Darius Rucker will host the ACM Lifting Lives® Celebrity Golf Classic at TPC Las Vegas for the second consecutive year on Saturday, April 6, 2013. The tournament is part of “The Week Vegas Goes Country®,” leading up to the 48th Annual ACM Awards, to be broadcast live from the MGM Grand Garden Arena on Sunday, April 7, 2013 at 8:00 PM live ET/delayed PT on the CBS Television Network.
The ACM Lifting Lives® Celebrity Golf Classic—the seventh held since 2004—brings together country music artists, record label executives and other members of the music community in a star-studded scramble tournament to raise funds and awareness for ACM Lifting Lives’ Diane Holcomb Emergency Relief Fund, which provides immediate relief to those in need in the music industry.
Rucker, an avid golfer, has been very involved with ACM Lifting Lives. He performed the original song “Music From the Heart” with campers from the ACM Lifting Lives Music Camp on the 2011 ACM Awards to raise awareness about those with developmental disabilities. Rucker also penned the song “Together, Anything is Possible” to raise money for the PGA’s charitable initiatives.
Rucker’s next album, True Believers, will be released this spring with a tour to follow.
