Toby Keith, Brad Paisley and Zac Brown Band have partnered with ACM Lifting Lives for Tickets-for-Charity, a new program that offers fans the best seats in the house at summer gigs while benefiting both Lifting Lives and other charitable initiatives personally supported by the artists.

The program allows fans to purchase great seats in sold-out sections at nationwide concerts at either the same or better prices than they’d find elsewhere. The purchase of these tickets through Tickets-for-Charity means that charities will benefit, as opposed to ticket brokers, resellers or agents. It’s a win-win.

ACM Lifting Lives Chairman Mark Hartley said, according to Country Music is Love, that “bringing fans together with the artists they love and important causes we all care about is a powerful thing, and Tickets-for-Charity makes it easy.”

Keith, who always carves time in his chaotic schedule for a USO Tour and whose Toby Keith Foundation aids families in Oklahoma dealing with sick children, said, “In my job, you get to go to a lot of places and see a lot of things, but there’s not much in my world that’s more gratifying or important than helping families in need…It’s just wonderful to be in a position to give back.” Keith also expressed how critical it is for him to support both troops and kids, saying, “It’s two very important things to me: American children, Oklahoma children specifically, and my warriors and my troops overseas.”

Paisley stated, “I’m honored to be part of the work that ACM Lifting Lives is doing and so glad to have fans join me in supporting the St. Jude Target House as part of this program.” He continued, “The Target House is an incredible place for families to stay as they endure all of the treatments their child goes through — these are some of the bravest kids and families you’ll ever see.”

Brown commented, “To me, there’s nothing more important than helping kids. It’s a great feeling to be on the road and know that my fans are joining me in helping to make a difference through this program.” With this initiative, tickets to a Zac Brown Band show and ‘Eat & Greet’ charity packages will benefit ACM Lifting Lives and Camp Southern Ground, which works with both typical and special needs kids to learn life skills and partake in teamwork exercises.

Country fans will be entertained and indirectly support charitable initiatives with the Tickets-for-Charity Program.
