Craig Morgan , Thompson Square , Lee Brice , Kip Moore,  JT Hodges , John Rich , Bradley Gaskin  and Larry Gatlin & The Gatlin Brothers all performed during The ACM Concert – Salute to the Military Presented by NRA Country. The free, open-to-the-public concert celebrated military families and country music fans and was part of The ACM Experience during The Week Vegas Goes Country. The show took place March 31 at Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino.
Hosted by HLN’s Robin Meade, Military ID holders were invited to watch the show from a reserved seating area. During the concert, NRA Country Cares and ACM Lifting Lives honored three military-inspired organizations with donations to their cause. Folds of Honor Foundation and Wounded Warrior Project each received $20,000 and Nellis Air Force Base Youth Programs was presented with $10,000.
This year’s ACM Experience was the first-ever free, open-to-the-public country music event created for fans during The Week Vegas Goes Country, the week leading up to the ACM Awards . The event, held March 30 – April 1, included the ACM BBQ Throwdown, ACM EXPO, the Ram Ride and Drive and more. The event ended with the ACM Fan Jam, hosted by Zac Brown Band  on April 1.
NRA Country is a celebration of American values – respect, honor and freedom – and powered by pride, freedom, love of country, respect for the military, and the responsibilities of protecting the great American life.
