"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
