A day after the Academy of Country Music Awards, the stars stayed in Las Vegas to record a special salute to the troops.

The event will feature big stars like The Band Perry, Kellie Pickler, and Lady Antebellum. Toby Keith will receive a special honor for all of his work with the U.S.O. and several service men and women will have a chance to perform with some of the stars.

The ACM Presents: An All Star Salute To The Troops will air on CBS (Locally on CBS 6- WRBG) on Tuesday, May 20 at 9pm.

WGNA is also doing our part to honor local men and women in uniform with our special 'Salute The Troops' campaign at WGNA.com.  Click the link to submit your special hero.
