The April 20 concert at ACL Live is the highlight of Mack, Jack & McConaughey, a two-day event organized by former Texas Longhorns football coach Mack Brown, Oscar-winning actor Matthew McConaughey and singer-songwriter Jack Ingram. It also includes a golf tournament, a fashion show and luncheon, and a concluding songwriters show the night after Lambert’s concert.

“The impact of their effort is off the charts and I am glad to help,” Lambert said in a press release.

Tickets to Lambert’s concert run $99-$152 and go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday, Feb. 3, at the ACL Live website.

Lambert, a native Texan, is currently flying high off November’s chart-topping “The Weight of these Wings,” her seventh studio release and first double-album.

This year’s fundraiser benefits CureDuchenne, Dell Children’s Medical Center of Central Texas, HeartGift, the Just Keep Livin’ Foundation and the Rise School of Austin.

“There is nobody better than Miranda to take year five of MJ&M to the next level,” Ingram said in a statement. “Matthew, Mack and I are so proud to have seen MJ&M grow from a fun idea into an impactful effort already investing more than $5 million into charities working to empower kids.”
