The party is now in full swing in Las Vegas, and yesterday (April 6) the ACM Party for a Cause Festival was hosted by Kix Brooks with memorable outdoor performances and big donations to some worthy causes.

Dierks Bentley headlined the show, which also included performances by Lee Brice, Kix, Hunter Hayes, Dustin Lynch, Eli Young Band and Love and Theft. Additionally, The Voice season 2 contestant (and military veteran) Angie Johnson sang the national anthem in front of the honor guard.

Members of the Duck Dynasty crew—who have been everywhere in Vegas—came out to assist ACM CEO Bob Romeo in presenting a $10,000 check to Nellis Air Force Base Force Support Squadron, $25,000 to Wounded Warrior Project and another $25,000 to Folds of Honor.

Special surprises included appearances by Sheryl Crow, who came out to sing with Dierks and even performed her own hit "If It Makes You Happy." When Dierks started playing "Home," Tim McGraw popped out and presented a new home to Army Sgt. Mathew Pickar and his wife through Operation Homefront.

The awards are coming up this evening at 8 p.m. ET on CBS. Stay on CountryWeekly.com for real-time results and photos of your favorite stars.
