Many of country's biggest stars stuck around in Las Vegas Monday night to tape the ACM Presents: An All-Star Salute to the Troops special. Many of the artists performed duets with members of the U.S. military. Keith Urban kicked off the night swapping vocals with a soldier on "For You."

Toby Keith enlisted an actual Marine to help him out on "Call a Marine," and The Band Perry 's duet with a soldier on "If I Die Young" got a huge response.

Carrie Underwood debuted a brand-new song written especially for the show called "Keep Us Safe." The power ballad brought cheers from the audience. Fans can download Carrie's new song when the show airs next month. Proceeds go to the ACM Lifting Lives charitable trust.

Tim McGraw performed another new song from his upcoming album, Sundown Heaven Town , and Luke Bryan delivered an acoustic performance of "Drink a Beer." Lee Brice got a little help from a U.S. service member on "I Drive Your Truck," too.

Rascal Flatts , Florida Georgia Line , Georgie Strait , Hunter Hayes and Eli Young Band are among the other stars appearing on the ACM Presents: An All-Star Salute to the Troops.  The special airs Tuesday, May 20 at 9 p.m. ET on CBS.
