Country couple Trisha Yearwood and Garth Brooks will host the inaugural ACM Lifting Lives fundraising gala in April (15).

The event, which is scheduled just two days before the 50th annual ACM Awards, will take place simultaneously at the Omni Dallas Hotel and the Fort Worth Zoo in Texas.

Brooks and Yearwood will alternate between both locations throughout the evening to entertain attendees, while Lady Antebellum will headline festivities at the Omni Dallas Hotel and Keith Urban and Little Big Town will perform at the Fort Worth event.

Funds raised at the bash will be donated to several Texas-based charities, including Brooks' favourite cause, Teammates for Kids.

The 50th annual ACM Awards, which will be co-hosted by Blake Shelton and Luke Bryan, will take place at the At&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, on 19 April (15).
