He can sing and swing! On Saturday, April 1, 2017, Charles Kelley, eleven-time ACM Award winner and member of multi-platinum trio Lady Antebellum, took the reins as host of the ACM Lifting Lives® Golf Classic for the first time.
Held at TPC Las Vegas in Las Vegas, Nevada, the ACM Lifting Lives® Celebrity Golf Classic brings together country music artists as well as other members of the music community in a star-studded scramble tournament to raise funds and awareness for ACM Lifting Lives® Diane Holcomb Emergency Relief Fund.
This fund enables ACM Lifting Lives to respond quickly to unforeseen, immediate financial needs of music related organizations and individuals. Since its inception in 2007, the Fund has distributed more than $500,000.
Kelley, an avid golfer, has been very involved with the ACM Lifting Lives® Golf Classic over the years.
"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 prior to the event. "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."
