NASHVILLE (AP) — Impress your friends this fall by telling them the commissioner of your fantasy football league is Florida Georgia Line. The Academy of Country Music and CBS Sports have created a fantasy football sweepstakes.

Anyone who donates $5 to the ACM’s charitable arm, Lifting Lives, through Aug. 9 will be entered into a drawing.

The winners will be assigned to a fantasy football league in which the commissioner will be Florida Georgia Line, Darius Rucker, Sara Evans, Jana Kramer, Love and Theft, Jimi Westbrook of Little Big Town, Chris Young or Montgomery Gentry.

Winners will be notified Aug. 18.
