Encino, CA (March 3, 2016) – ACM Lifting Lives® announced today remaining dates as part of the string of nationwide ACM Lifting Lives Club Shows . Participating clubs have agreed to donate a portion of each ticket sold to ACM Lifting Lives, and the money raised will go to help fund organizations that are improving lives through the power of music. Tickets may be purchased directly from the venues listed below.
Sold-out ACM Lifting Lives Club shows have already taken place this year at Bluebird in Bloomington, IN, Coyote Joe’s in Charlotte, NC, Joe’s Bar in Chicago, IL and Joe’s Live in Rosemont, IL featuring Frankie Ballard, Eli Young Band, Old Dominion, Parmalee and A Thousand Horses. The Old Dominion show Tuesday at Joe’s Live raised an unprecedented $4,600 in just one evening of live music at the newest Chicago-area country music hotspot.
"We are thrilled for another amazing year of support from venues across the country, artists and the industry to enable Lifting Lives to continue our mission of improving lives through the power of music," said ACM Lifting Lives President Ed Warm, who owns Joe’s Live and conceptualized the ACM Lifting Lives fundraising effort in 2011.
