Darius Rucker Announces 2016 ACM Lifting Lives Golf Classic
Darius Rucker will return to host the ACM Lifting Lives Golf Classic for the fifth consecutive year this April. Held at TPC Las Vegas on April 2, the golf classic will raise money to benefit the ACM Lifting Lives’ Diane Holcomb Emergency Relief Fund, which provides immediate relief to those in need within the music industry.
According to a press release, the golf tournament was created out of the need for a charitable event to connect fans, sponsors and donors with industry insiders and artists.
“The tournament brings awareness to the extraordinary work being done through the Diane Holcomb Emergency Relief Fund, and ensures its ability to continue the generosity of ACM Lifting Lives to financially support our music community family and friends when in dire straits,” former Academy of Country Music and ACM Lifting Lives Board Chair Gayle Holcomb says in a press release.
The ACM Lifting Lives Golf Classic and the fourth annual ACM Party for a Cause festival are two events that will benefit charities leading up to the 51st ACM Awards in Las Vegas on April 3. The ACM Awards will broadcast live from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas at 8PM ET on CBS. This year's awards show is co-hosted by Luke Bryan and Dierks Bentley, who replaces previous co-host Blake Shelton.
Rucker will also head out on his own headlining tour. Dan + Shay and Michael Ray will join him on his 2016 Good for a Good Time Tour, which kicks off June 3 in Tampa, Fla.
