It only took 18 minutes for music fans to snatch up 70,000 tickets for both next year’s 50th Anniversary of the Academy of Country Music Awards and the ACM Party for a Cause: 50 Years of Music & Memories in Arlington.


The events were the biggest – and fastest – selling in the academy’s history.
The 50th ACM Awards will be broadcast live for the first time from AT&T Stadium in Arlington on April 19, 2015. Country stars Blake Shelton and Luke Bryan will return to co-host the event, which will cap off three days of music, including the third annual ACM Party for a Cause on April 17-18, 2015, at Globe Life Park in Arlington.


There may be tickets made available at a later date, according to ACM officials. If that happens, the ACM A-List will be notified first. Fans are encouraged to sign up for the ACM A-List for free at www.acmcountry.com to receive event updates.
