With the 50th Annual ACM Awards right around the corner, details are being finalized for both the ceremony and subsequent special events.

The weekend celebration includes a roster of events and activities that dedicated country fans won't want to miss out on. On April 18, Dierks Bentley will be hosting a motorcycle ride and charity concert to raise money for charities including ACM Lifting Lives, a non-profit that seeks to better individuals' lives through music.

Renowned country singers such as Thompson Square and Montgomery Gentry will be performing at the event, in addition to the just-announced Kelsea Ballerini, Lee Brice and Brooke Eden. Each artist will perform a special set of songs during the day, and all proceeds raised from the concert will benefit the ACM Lifting Lives charity, local child abuse advocacy groups and military non-profits.

“One of the first times I was in Las Vegas for the ACMs, I did the Lifting Lives motorcycle ride, and it was fun," Bentley shares. “This year, we have some time on Saturday, so I’m going to get a bike out there and do some riding and raise money for a great cause. It’s fun. When you can ride motorcycles and actually help make money by riding motorcycles, that’s such a win-win situation.”

The actual 2015 ACM Awards will take place on Sunday, April 19, in Arlington, Texas.
