“The Academy and ACM Lifting Lives are honored to contribute in a meaningful way to Dolly’s heroic efforts to help the people of her hometown, and when Taylor heard what we were planning, she offered to match our gift, which gives it that much more impact,” Tiffany Moon, Executive Vice President and Managing Director of the Academy of Country Music, said in a press release. We are so grateful to Taylor for her support to the Academy’s charitable efforts through the years, and for helping us and Dolly Parton assist families in need at a time of crisis.”
