Just one day after revealing that Dierks Bentley will be replacing Blake Shelton as reigning Entertainer of the Year Luke Bryan's co-host of the 51st annual ACM Awards, the Academy of Country Music has revealed the all-star lineup for the three-day Party for a Cause Festival in 2016.

As ACM Awards week makes its return to Las Vegas from a year in Dallas, the fourth iteration of Party for a Cause will take place April 1st through 3rd with headliners Carrie Underwood (April 1st), Dierks Bentley (April 2nd) and Kenny Chesney (April 3rd). Additional main stage performers include Chris Stapleton, Cam, Sam Hunt, Chris Janson, Kip Moore, Chris Young, Maddie & Tae and numerous others. A secondary Party Stage will feature Brothers Osborne, Lauren Alaina, Chris Lane, Jana Kramer and others.

Proceeds from ticket sales will benefit ACM Lifting Lives, which supports music therapy programs for veterans and funding to help them transition to civilian life. More than $400,000 has been donated over the previous three years of the festival. 

The 51st annual ACM Awards will be broadcast live from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on April 3rd.
