ACM Lifting Lives: Borderline Strong
The ACM Lifting Lives Presents: Borderline Strong, was held Feb. 11 in Thousand Oaks, California. The event was held at the Fred Kavli Theater, in acknowledgement of the shooting at the Borderline Bar & Grill, which killed 12 people and injured many more in Thousand Oaks.
ACM Lifting Lives rallied the country music industry, families of previous gun violence and the Hollywood entertainment community to support victims and their families. Hosted by Charles Esten, the event featured performances by Trace Adkins, Jimmie Allen, Deana Carter, Charles Esten, Morgan Evans, Gone West, Cassadee Pope, Tyler Rich and Runaway June. Arnold Schwarzenegger also made a surprise appearance.
Net proceeds benefitted the Ventura County Community Foundation’s Conejo Valley Victim’s Fund—including a very generous donation from Bobby Bones and The Shop Forward, which produces his pimpinjoy line.
