"It will be the first event of its kind at the home of the Dallas Cowboys," Jones said. "The stadium was built to host world class events such as this, and it doesn’t get any bigger than the ACMs. The excitement from fans across the country, our great fans in Texas, and this venue will provide the biggest and best stage available to showcase country music and its stars to the world."

Shelton and Bryan will return to co-host the show, which will cap off three days of events including the 3rd annual ACM Party for a Cause: 50 Years of Music & Memories on April 17-18 at Globe Life Park in Arlington.
