It seems like most of the big names will be there so that's great but I am looking forward to hearing some of the smaller acts as well. I love that they do this ACM Experience now to give a bunch of the new artists exposure too. It's like a mini fan fair- with gambling ;)

It's coming up so soon! Who is going to make it to Vegas? I need someone to tell me stories about all the events there so I can live vicariously through you!

Can't wait to see this performance! LBT live is always so good and what a great way to support such a good cause-

The ACADEMY OF COUNTRY MUSIC (ACM) has announced that CAPITOL NASHVILLE act LITTLE BIG TOWN will partner with ACM LIFTING LIVES to perform “Here’s Hope,” an original song co-written by ATLANTIC/WARNER MUSIC NASHVILLE artist HUNTER HAYES, to shed light on child hunger in the U.S. The song is being, which is being presented by CONAGRA FOODS’ CHILD HUNGER ENDS HERE campaign, will be performed at the 47th Annual ACADEMY OF COUNTRY MUSIC AWARDS, to be broadcast live from the MGM GRAND GARDEN ARENA in LAS VEGAS on SUNDAY, APRIL 1st at 8p (ET/PT) on CBS-TV.

HUNTER will introduce LITTLE BIG TOWN, who will be joined onstage by the CLARK COUNTY CHILDREN’S CHOIR.

“When I first learned about ACM LIFTING LIVES a few years ago, I immediately asked to be a part of this amazing organization,” said KIMBERLY SCHLAPMAN of LITTLE BIG TOWN. “LIFTING LIVES seeks out needs and takes care of people. They work hard at giving both children and adults comfort, contentment and happiness. We are so honored and excited to be a part of the very special LIFTING LIVES moment to end child hunger on the ACM AWARDS. We can't wait!”

“What I didn’t realize – and what most people may not know – is that child hunger is not a faraway problem; it’s a problem right here in our own backyards,” said HUNTER. “The good news though is that this is a problem we can all help solve together. My hope is that through music, we can inspire people to get involved and finally put an end to child hunger in our country.”

ACM LIFTING LIVES is working with the CONAGRA FOODS CHILD HUNGER ENDS HERE campaign, which will donate up to five million meals this school year to FEEDING AMERICA, the nation’s largest domestic hunger-relief organization. To participate, consumers can purchase specially-marked packages of select CONAGRA FOODS brands, including BANQUET, CHEF BOYARDEE, HEALTHY CHOICE, HUNT’S, MARIE CALLENDER’S, MANWICH, ORVILLE REDENBACHER’S, PETER PAN AND SNACK PACK, and then visit www.ChildHungerEndsHere.com to enter the eight-digit code found on participating product packages. For each code entered through AUGUST 2012, the equivalent of one meal will be donated to FEEDING AMERICA. In return for entering a code from specially-marked packages, consumers can download their favorite version of “Here’s Hope” from JEWEL, OWL CITY and JAY SEAN.

That's awesome. The ACM's will be a HUGE platform to the charity and should bring in lots of mass exposure. I hope it's a big hit!

The ACM has done a great job announcing new performers and presenters almost daily.

Sounds like it will be a great show!
