ACM Presents: Lionel Richie and Friends

Lionel Richie has had a long, successful career and now the Academy of Country Music is honoring the legendary crooner at a concert featuring many of his musical friends. This Friday, April 13 at 9:00 PM ET/PT on the CBS, Richie will be accompanied on stage by various artists who will be paying tribute to him all in the name of a good cause.

All proceeds from ticket sales (it's an in-person show too) will go to ACM's charity Lifting Lives whose mission is to improve lives through music. What does that mean? The organization's funds go to things like music school grants and funding musical therapy and music education in schools.

Guests of ACM Presents: Lionel Richie and Friends will include performances by Jason Aldean, The Band Perry, Big & Rich, Luke Bryan, Kenny Chesney, Sara Evans and Marc Anthony, Lady Antebellum, Little Big Town, Martina McBride, Tim McGraw, Jennifer Nettles, Rascal Flatts, Kenny Rogers, Darius Rucker, and Blake Shelton - plus a special appearance by Nicole Richie! 

Don't forget to tune into Lionel Ritchie and Friends tonight, April 13th at 9:00 PM ET/PT on CBS!
