ACM Lifting Lives announced today that the January “My Cause” web feature will spotlight Miranda Lambert and her charity organization, Muttnation Foundation. The web feature drives awareness of artist-supported charitable organizations and supports fundraising efforts for those philanthropies.
This month, “My Cause: Muttnation Foundation” highlights a foundation started by Miranda Lambert to support other organizations whose purpose is to build animal shelters for better care, increase pet adoption, encourage responsible pet guardianship, rehabilitate sick or unsocialized animals, fund spay/neuter programs, reduce euthanasia of healthy animals and train shelter dogs for purposes of therapy programs, assistance for wounded military personnel and dogs-in-prisons programs. Donations can be made to the charity using a donate link available with the video below.
For the first time in years, Reba McEntire will not be hosting the ACM Awards (due to a jam-packed schedule between her television show and other projects). However, as they say in show biz, the show must go on, and it will do so with Blake Shelton on the stage as a co-host. Yes, I said “co-host,” which means Blake will be sharing the stage with another artist.
