Darius Rucker and Lady Antebellum’s Charles Kelley are teaming up to = host the first-ever ACM Lifting Lives Topgolf Tee-Off on Saturday, April 14 at Topgolf Las Vegas at MGM Grand Hotel & Casino as part of the ACM Party for a Cause.
The two buddies have not been shy about their love of golf, taking to the links whenever they have free time. Darius was even a guest on Charles’ web series called, “The Hook,” which featured the two friends joining forces to take on Charles’ big brother for a friendly wager.
The inaugural event, a change from the annual golf classic, allows fans to enjoy live performances, while artists compete in a tournament of golf skills. Fans will be able to swing a club or two themselves by reserving Topgolf bays, making them eligible to win various prizes. If you’re not a fan of the game of golf but want to hangout and enjoy the performances, general admission tickets will be available.
The event will raise funds and awareness for the ACM Lifting Lives Diane Holcomb Emergency Relief Fund—started by former ACM Lifting Lives Board Chair Gayle Holcomb, in honor of her mother. The fund covers unforeseen, immediate financial needs of music related organizations and individuals.
Topgolf Tee-off is one of many festivities taking place the weekend of April 12-15, surrounding the 53rd Annual Academy of Country Music Awards, set to air live from MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on April 15 on CBS.
Tickets are on sale now and start at $35.
