The Academy of Country Music Just Announced an Amazing Country Show at Globe Life Park

Hoo boy, talk about a country music lineup. Dallas is lucky in that it's often able to attract country music's biggest and brightest stars, and that's going to be especially true in the coming months: Miranda Lambert plays the American Airlines Center next week, Shania Twain just announced a stop in Dallas in August, and the Academy of Country Music Awards will be held right here at AT&T Stadium in April. And in conjunction with that gala, the ACM is bringing a whopper of lineup here next month as well.

Today, the ACM announced that some of the genre's biggest stars will share the stage at Globe Life Park in a two-day, outdoor music festival before the awards ceremony, which takes place on April 19. Better yet, Party For A Cause, as it's been dubbed, will benefit the Academy's Lifting Lives Foundation, a charitable organization that provides access to music education. It's a big year for country music in our city, and it officially just got bigger.

The lineup for Party With A Cause is really pretty staggering: Kenny Chesney, Miranda Lambert, Darius Rucker and Dierks Bentley will appear alongside Sam Hunt, Alabama, Dwight Yoakam and Patty Loveless. Luke Bryan and Florida Georgia Line will headline the bro-country stage. (We're guessing that's how that will work, anyway.) Food trucks, a "country marketplace" and yet-unnamed "interactive experiences" will accompany the music programming.

In what may be the most exciting announcement of all, performances from the festival will be taped for a two-hour CBS special called Superstar Duets. No details have been released on who exactly will perform together in the show, which is scheduled to air on May 15. This, of course, means that attendees will hopefully be able to hear rare and special collaborations between artists from all generations of country music. We're not sure exactly how Sam Hunt and Alabama will sound together, but the prospect of a new-meets-old kind of show is extremely exciting, especially when you consider the sheer amount of talent that will be at Globe Life Park.

The announcement of the Party For A Cause festival also means that more seats at the previously sold-out ACM Awards ceremony have been released. According to the press release issued today, tickets to the Awards sold out in 18 minutes last year, so you're going to want to get a jump on these before they're all gone. Standing room-only packages for the festival and awards start at a cool $300, which is almost a bargain when you think about all of the live music you'll be able to see over the span of three days.

The show takes place on April 17 and 18 and tickets are available now at Ticketmaster.com.
