The Academy of Country Music has made a contribution of $650,000 to ACM Lifting Lives, on behalf of artists who participated in the taping of ACM Presents: An All-Star Salute to the Troops, which taped in April 2014 in Las Vegas. Ticket proceeds from the event went to ACM Lifting Lives.

Dierks Bentley, Lee Brice, Luke Bryan, Merle Haggard, Hunter Hayes, Toby Keith, Miranda Lambert, Tim McGraw, Craig Morgan, Kellie Pickler, Blake Shelton, George Strait, Carrie Underwood, Keith Urban, Eli  Young Band, Florida Georgia Line, Lady Antebellum, Rascal Flatts, and The Band Perry all took park in the event. The two-hour show was co-hosted by LL Cool J and Chris O’Donnell, and aired in May on CBS.

“We are so thankful to the fans, artists, and military troops that made this special possible,” ACM Chairman of the Board Ken Robold said. “We are grateful to have been able to give more than $4.5 million to support the good work of ACM Lifting Lives through out televised specials such as this.”
