Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood are set to host the ACM Lifting Lives “One Night, Two Cities, All Music” fundraising gala on April 17, 2015, two days before the 50th Academy of Country Music Awards. The event, which will consist of two simultaneous shows, will take place at the Omni Dallas Hotel and the Fort Worth Zoo.
Lady Antebellum will headline the show at the Omni Dallas Hotel, with a special performance from Hunter Hayes. Meanwhile, Keith Urban will headline the Fort Worth Zoo concert, with a special performance from Little Big Town. Journalist and Entertainment Tonight co-host Nancy O’Dell will join Brooks and Yearwood to co-host the Fort Worth gala.
Brooks and Yearwood will alternate between both locations throughout the evening to entertain attendees in Dallas and Fort Worth. The inaugural gala will kick off with a cocktail reception, followed by a dinner, live auction and a line-up of performances by country music’s most celebrated artists.
ACM Lifting Lives will donate funds raised from the gala to several Texas-based organizations including Garth Brooks’ charity, Teammates for Kids and the Child Life Zones in Children’s Health of Dallas and Cook Children’s of Fort Worth.
