A huge crowd gathered today at Globe Life Park in Arlington for the start of the two-day Party for a Cause music festival that's part of the Academy of Country Music Awards festivities in Arlington. 

Well-known country artists performed on the North Lawn in the afternoon before the party moved inside Globe Life Park for the Superstar Duets portion of the event. Rain put a bit of a damper on the fest in the evening.
