Kristian Bush is heading for Hollywood, and he's teaming up with the Academy of Country Music to do so. The best part is, it's all in the name of making lives better.

Bush, the male half of Sugarland, will be playing a benefit show at the Troubadour in West Hollywood to support ACM Lifting Livesthe philanthropic arm of the Academy of Country Music dedicated to improving lives through the power of music. A portion of each ticket sold will be donated to the charity, which supports music education programs for children and young adults throughout the country.

Also helping out the cause is special guest Rita Wilson, the actress, singer and producer, whose debut album AM/FM was released in 2012.

The show will take place on Thursday, Aug. 27. Tickets are available for purchase here.

Bush is currently building on the premiere of his debut solo project, Southern Gravity, which was made available early this spring. He recently released the album's second single, "Light Me Up," the follow-up to "Trailer Hitch."

Taste of Country critiqued "Light Me Up" as an "easy-to-embrace love song." It carries the same easy-go-lucky vibe we experienced with "Trailer Hitch." Both singles released from the album thus far travel along the lines of Bush's self-proclaimed "road trip" record.

Bush is currently on the road playing shows, fairs and festivals all around the country, and will be for the rest of the summer.
