Get ready for a country invasion. Another big event is coming to North Texas.

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones was in Las Vegas Sunday night at the Academy of County Music Awards when co-host Luke Bryan made this blockbuster announcement: "Next year, the ACMs will celebrate their 50th anniversary at his stadium in Dallas."

The academy's golden anniversary celebration in 2015 will take place at AT&T Stadium in Arlington on April 17-19. Tickets go on presale starting April 10, 2014. Prices range from $145 to $583.

The awards show, co-hosted by Blake Shelton and Luke Bryan, is at 7 p.m. on Sunday, April 19, 2015.

There will be two events preceding the awards show: the ACM Party for a Cause: 50 Years of Music and Memories, at Globe Life Park on Friday, April 17 and Satuday, April 18. It will feature live musical performances, "interactive experiences" and a "family-friendly country marketplace." Performers will be announced at a later date.
