Carrie Underwood will headline the Academy of Country Music's Women of Country Night in Las Vegas on April 1. 

CMT reported that the all-girl show, which is the first of the ACM's Party for a Cause concerts, was Carrie's idea. She tells the ACM's Tempo magazine, “Whenever we were approached to do it, they were like, ‘Well, who do you want to have on the bill?’ I was like, ‘Can we just ask girls?’ I just personally think that’s a more interesting bill because everybody is unique. Everybody has their own sound, their own look, their own kind of music, their own voice.”

The ACM's Party for the Cause at the Las Vegas Festival Grounds leads up to the award show on April 3. Other performers for the April 1 show haven't been announced yet.
