George Strait, Carrie Underwood Lead Salute the Troops TV Special
Set for broadcast May 20 on CBS, the concert was created to honor our country's servicemen and women. The show will tape on April 7 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, one day after the 49th ACM Awards, and proceeds from ticket sales will benefit ACM Lifting Lives, the charitable arm of the Academy.
"We are so thankful for the men and women in our armed forces and proud to present this fantastic night of performances in their honor," said ACM CEO Bob Romeo in a press statement. "The special will be a remarkable moment in Academy history and continues the 'ACM Presents' TV specials that have been so successful over the years and helps to fund the important charitable work of ACM Lifting Lives." more on this story
