COUNTRY ACTS BAND TOGETHER FOR ACM AUCTION

The guitar Taylor Swift used on the recent ACM Awards show and Sheryl Crow’s vintage Baldoni accordion join Dolly Parton’s bedazzled dulcimer in Christie’s all-country auction to benefit ACM Lifting Lives’ coronavirus fund.

Bidding opens today on items in Nashville: An Auction to Benefit ACM Lifting Lives COVID-19 Response Fund. The final gavel goes down on 10/29.

Guitars on the block include Keith Urban’s Hi-9 guitar played in the 2018 “Coming Home” video and on the 2018 ACM Awards; Bradley Cooper’s Gibson guitar used in A Star is Born; and Dwight Yoakam’s Epiphone Casino guitar seen on the cover of his 2005 studio album Blame the Vain.

Stage wear from Reba McEntire, Carrie Underwood and Trisha Yearwood, Tim McGraw’s F131 Hellcat motorcycle and Miranda Lambert’s cowboy boots are also up for bids.

“Every winning bid will go towards our COVID-19 Response Fund to support the workers of our Country Music community: the tour bus drivers, aspiring musicians, techs and venue workers—so many of whom have lost their livelihoods overnight during the course of this pandemic,” Lyndsay Cruz, Executive Director, ACM Lifting Lives, said. “So far, the fund has distributed $1.5 million and we are hoping the sale of these iconic items will enable us to support more affected by this crisis.” To see what’s up for auction, click here.
