When Vegas Goes Country, things get rowdy. Especially when the biggest names in country music gather April 6 for the 49th Academy of Country Music Awards at the MGM Grand Garden Arena. It's part of a huge week of appearances and performances by top-selling artists. The 4th annual ACM Fan Jam at Mandalay Bay will be a live remote party as part of the ACMAs, and will include a concert by Florida Georgia Line.
On April 4-5, check out the 2nd annual Party for a Cause festival at The Linq between The Quad and Flamingo resorts. This outdoor music festival will feature multiple stages for ongoing live country music performances, interactive games, a country marketplace and more - headlined by Rascal Flatts and Keith Urban!
Year-round, you'll find country adventure around every corner. Las Vegas is home to several down-home bars, where the standard dress code includes jeans, boots, hats ... and a personalized belt buckle. Order up some whiskey and scoot your boots around the dance floor at Coyote Ugly at New York-New York Hotel & Casino, or take some western dance classes at Revolver Bar & Saloon at Santa Fe Station. Then throw on your sexiest western wear and head over to Gilley's Saloon, Dance Hall & Bar-B-Que at Treasure Island for a thigh-slappin' good time with bikini bull riding and some of the sexiest cowgirls this side of Texas. Of course, there's the famous Stoney's Rockin' Country at Town Square, where you can polish up your line dancin' moves, too.
Hopefully, you'll work up an appetite for some of the best steak in the country. Try The Flame Steakhouse at El Cortez and experience vintage downtown Vegas. Or stick to the Strip and belly up to the bar at the Old Homestead Steakhouse at Caesars Palace. Quick bites and beer more your thing? Grab a burger at Toby Keith's I Love This Bar & Grill, named after the country singer's hit single. This joint at Harrah's features more than 100 pieces of the singer's memorabilia, including signed guitars, platinum records and clothing worn by the man himself. Or head over to PBR Rock Bar & Grill in the Miracle Mile Shops at Planet Hollywood for some traditional American comfort food.
Grab your finest Stetson and get to Las Vegas.
