Fans flocked to The Beach at Mandalay Bay last weekend as some of country music’s biggest stars took the stage at the two-day Party for a Cause show presented by WME. Artists donated their time and talents playing for sold-out crowds each night to raise money for ACM Lifting Lives, including Jake Owen, Lee Brice, Brothers Osborne, Big and Rich, Maddie & Tae, Brett Young, William Michael Morgan, Florida Georgia Line, Cole Swindell, Dustin Lynch, Chris Lane, Tucker Beathard, and more. The first-year event raised an unprecedented $100,000 for ACM’s Liting Lives program, and on Saturday night Co-Head of WME’s Nashville Office Rob Beckham, and WME Partner Gayle Holcomb, surprised ACM with a check for the profits raised during the show.
