ACM Lifting Live teamed with Borderline Bar & Grill, the site of a mass shooting on Nov. 7, 2018, that left 12 patrons dead, for a benefit concert on Feb. 11 at the Thousand Oaks Civic Center in Thousand Oaks, Calif.

Hosted by Charles Esten, the one-night-only concert featured Trace Adkins, Jimmie Allen, Charles Esten, Cassadee Pope, Tyler Rich, Runaway June, Kelsea Ballerini, Morgan Evans and more.
