Garth and Trisha

The Academy of Country Music’s philanthropic arm, ACM Lifting Lives®, announced today that country music luminaries Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood will host its first-ever fundraising gala on April 17, 2015, just two days before the 50th Academy of Country Music Awards. The “One Night, Two Cities, All Music” gala presented by Mattress Firm will consist of two shows taking place simultaneously at the Omni Dallas Hotel and the Fort Worth Zoo. The Omni Dallas Hotel gala will feature headliner and ACM Awards nominees Lady Antebellum, and a special performance by Hunter Hayes. Fort Worth Zoo will feature ACM Awards nominees including headliner Keith Urban, and a special performance by Little Big Town. Nancy O’Dell, Emmy®-award winning journalist and co-host of Entertainment Tonight, will join Brooks and Yearwood to co-host the Fort Worth gala.

Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood will alternate between both locations throughout the evening to entertain attendees in Dallas and Fort Worth. A host of celebrities along with prominent music industry and entertainment executives are scheduled to attend. The inaugural gala will kick off with a cocktail reception, followed by a dinner, live auction and a stellar line-up of performances by country music’s most celebrated artists.

ACM Lifting Lives will be donating funds raised from the gala to several Texas-based organizations including Garth Brooks’ charity, Teammates for Kids and the Child Life Zones in Children’s Health of Dallas and Cook Children’s of Fort Worth.

“The Academy has an almost 50-year history of charitable giving and wonderful relationships with Garth and Trisha. When Garth called about hosting this event, it was the culmination of years of hard work, and furthers the missions of our organizations – healing through the power of music, and improving lives by connecting fans, artists and the industry,” said Bob Romeo, CEO of the Academy of Country Music.

“Mattress Firm is passionate about improving lives and we are excited to partner with ACM Lifting Lives and their commitment to help others through music,” said Karrie Forbes, Mattress Firm Foundation Board Member and Chief Marketing Officer of Mattress Firm.

The “One Night, Two Cities, All Music” gala is among the highly-anticipated events held during the ACM Awards week culminating with the 50th Academy of Country Music Awards, Country Music’s Party of the Year®. The ceremony, co-hosted by Blake Shelton and Luke Bryan, will broadcast LIVE from AT&T Stadium in Arlington, TX on Sunday, April 19, 2015 at 8:00 PM live ET/delayed PT on the CBS Television Network.

Little Big Town’s Kimberly Schlapman to Release First Cook Book

kimberly schlapman

Little Big Town’s Kimberly Schlapman will release her first cookbook titled OH GUSSIE! on April 14th.

Kimberly Schlapman fans have fallen for her easy confidence in the kitchen and the effortless way she entertains. They love her cooking the same way they’ve swooned over her high harmonies singing with country music powerhouse Little Big Town. In Oh Gussie! Cooking and Visiting in Kimberly’s Southern Kitchen (William Morrow Cookbooks; April 14, 2015) written with James Beard Award-winner author Martha Foose, Kimberly shares delicious recipes and soul-stirring stories from her roots in the Appalachian foothills of north Georgia, her travels on tour with the band, and from the life she loves back home in country music’s capital.

“I’ve been so excited about this that I could hardly stand the wait!” says Kimberly Schlapman. “When I’m not on stage with Little Big Town, you can probably find me in my kitchen. As long as I’ve been singing, I’ve been cooking. I have poured my heart and soul into this book, and I hope these recipes and stories will inspire you and bring you closer to the ones you love as you fill up their bellies—and their hearts.”

William Morrow has acquired world rights to the book. Cassie Jones, VP & Editorial Director of William Morrow Cookbooks, negotiated the deal with CAA.
