timmcgrawACM Presents: Tim McGraw’s Superstar Summer Night will live up to its title. Jason Aldean, Luke Bryan, Taylor Swift and Ne-Yo are the first to be added to the all-star lineup. The event will be taped Monday, April 8 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. The special will be broadcast at a later date on the CBS Television Network.

“There’s no better time for live music than in the heat of the summer,” said McGraw. “Country music is hotter than it has ever been, and with some help from a few friends in other genres too, we’re going to get summer started off right. I’ve been lucky enough to have all these artists join me on tour, and it’ll be fun to get everyone back together to help raise money and bring some attention to Lifting Lives. Not enough people know what good work the organization does, and when I was asked to help put this show together, it was a no-brainer.”

Tickets for ACM Presents: Tim McGraw’s Superstar Summer Night are on sale at Ticketmaster, priced at $105, $155 and $205. Proceeds from ticket sales will benefit ACM Lifting Lives, the charitable arm of the Academy and an organization that McGraw was closely affiliated with during his last tour.
