Jewel will be offering up a sneak preview of the upcoming film "Ring of Fire" at the Academy of Country Music's ACM Experience. The three-day event starts Friday in Las Vegas, in conjunction with the ACM Awards. The Lifetime Original Movie stars Jewel as June Carter Cash. In addition to presenting clips from the film, Jewel will treat attendees to an acoustic concert. But she's just one of many stars slated to take part in the festivities. The event will also feature performances from Jerrod Niemann, Easton Corbin, Love And Theft, Tate Stevens, Danielle Peck, and others.

Meanwhile, The Band Perry and Dierks Bentley will be headlining the ACM Party for a Cause Festival. Outnumber Hunger will host the first day of the two-day charity concert event. The Band Perry will cap off the first night, following performances from Brantley Gilbert, Justin Moore, Florida Georgia Line, and others. Kix Brooks will host Saturday's show, supporting military organizations including Wounded Warrior Project and Folds of Honor. In addition to Bentley, the Eli Young Band, Hunter Hayes, Lee Brice, Love And Theft, and Dustin Lynch will also perform. The 48th annual ACM Awards will take place in Las Vegas, and air on CBS on Sunday night.
