The Academy of Country Music announced Charles Kelley, of the platinum-selling country group Lady Antebellum, will host their annual ACM Lifting Lives® Golf Classic at TPC Las Vegas on Saturday, April 1, 2017. This is the sixth consecutive year at TPC Las Vegas with proceeds going to the ACM Lifting Lives’ Diane Holcomb Emergency Relief Fund.

While it will be Kelley’s first time to host the tournament, he’s no stranger to the event which is part of The Week Vegas Goes Country® from March 30 - April 2, 2017.

“I’ve been able to participate in the ACM Lifting Lives Golf Classic tournament for the past couple of years, so I’m looking forward to stepping back up onto green again this year,” said Kelley. “Getting together with my buddies to play a round in Vegas is always the perfect way to head into the award show, especially when it’s also for a good cause.” Fans who’d like to participate in the scramble should contact David Young for more info. ?

The Diane Holcomb Emergency Relief Fund, established in 2007, has distributed more than $500,000 to individuals and music-related organizations affected by unforeseen, immediate financial needs.

The 52nd Academy of Country Music Awards™ will be held for the first time in T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on Sunday, April 2.
