ACM Presents: Superstar Duets will be the fitting title of an upcoming CBS television special featuring highlights from this weekend's ACM Party for a Cause Festival. Held at Arlington's Global Life Park, home of the Texas Rangers, the first night of the two-day country music extravaganza saw Country Music Hall of Famers Alabama and Ronnie Milsap teaming with artists whom they've greatly influenced, Eli Young Band and Luke Bryan, respectively. Brooks & Dunn performed live for the first time together in more than four years, alongside the friend who convinced them to get back together, Reba McEntire. Darius Rucker harmonized with Sara Evans, while Dierks Bentley, Kip Moore and Ashley Monroe became a trio for the evening. And perhaps the oddest pairing of the evening turned out to be one of the most electric, as Dwight Yoakam traded hits with Sam Hunt.

The ACM Party for a Cause benefits ACM Lifting Lives, the philanthropic arm of the Academy of Country Music, and several military causes. It continues Saturday, April 18th, with performances by Eric Church, Alan Jackson, Keith Urban, Lady Antebellum, the Band Perry, Miranda Lambert, Kenny Chesney and many more.
