Tim McGraw Leading Post ACM Awards All-Star Concert Special
Tim McGraw will be the focus of this year's concert special following the Academy of Country Music Awards. The singer is playing a role in selecting the performers for "ACM Presents: Tim McGraw's Superstar Summer Night," which will be taped at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on April 8th -- the night after the 48th annual ACM Awards. Country, rock, and pop artists as well as movie and TV stars will be joining Tim for the show. McGraw says his goal is to "help turn the fans on to some of the best live music that will be on the road this summer," and "really put a spotlight" on the artists he believes the audience "won't want to miss."
The list of participants and an air date haven't been announced yet, but the show will air on CBS. Tickets go on sale to the general public on Friday. Money raised through the concert will go to the Academy's charity, ACM Lifting Lives.
