Country music superstars Jason Aldean, Luke Bryan, Taylor Swift and chart-topping R&B artist Ne-Yo are the first performers to be added to the all-star lineup scheduled to perform at the ACM PRESENTS: TIM McGRAW'S SUPERSTAR SUMMER NIGHT, taping 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.

ACM PRESENTS: TIM McGRAW's SUPERSTAR SUMMER NIGHT will feature star-studded performances and musical collaborations during a two-hour concert event to benefit ACM Lifting Lives. Fifteen-time ACM Award winner Tim McGraw is spotlighting the hottest music of summer and calling on his friends to help kick off the 2013 touring season.

"There's no better time for live music than in the heat of the summer," said McGraw. "Country music is hotter than it's ever been, and with some help from a few friends in other formats, too, we're going to get summer started off right. I've been lucky enough to have all these artists tour with me, 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."

Proceeds from ticket sales will benefit ACM Lifting Lives, the charitable arm of the Academy, and an organization that McGraw was closely affiliated with over his last tour. For more information, log onto www.ACMLiftingLives.org, www.ACMcountry.com or follow on Twitter at @ACMawards.

For 20 years, Tim McGraw has been providing a powerful connection with his audience. With Two Lanes of Freedom, his new album and first release for Big Machine Records, the singer is covering his broadest emotional range yet, with a set of songs that looks forward and back, gets deep and gets loose, and reveals that even the biggest stars can continue to grow with consistency and maturity.

In his record-shattering career, McGraw has sold more than 40 million albums and dominated the charts with 32 #1 singles. Since the release of his debut album in 1993, he has won three GRAMMY(R) Awards, 15 Academy of Country Music Awards, 12 Country Music Association Awards and 10 American Music Awards, while simultaneously maintaining a parallel career as a successful actor in such films as "The Blind Side," "Country Strong" and "Friday Night Lights," as well as hosting "Saturday Night Live," a rare honor for a singer in any genre. McGraw has never been afraid of breaking new ground - over the years, he has collaborated with musicians from Nelly and Tony Bennett to Def Leppard and Ne-Yo.

ACM Lifting Lives(R) is the philanthropic arm of the Academy of Country Music dedicated to improving lives through the power of music. Each year, ACM Lifting Lives provides grants to music therapy and music education programs. Other giving includes serving members of the country music community who face unexpected medical or financial hardship through the Diane Holcomb Emergency Relief Fund and partnering with artists to improve lives through music. Since 2009, the ACM Lifting Lives on-stage moment during the Academy of Country Music Awards has raised over $200,000 for designated charities. Downloads and direct donations of Toby Keith's performance on the 45th annual ACM broadcast and Darius Rucker's performance on the 46th annual telecast raised funds and awareness for Stand Up To Cancer and Vanderbilt Kennedy Center, respectively. For more information, please visit www.ACMLiftingLives.org.

ACM PRESENTS: TIM McGRAW'S SUPERSTAR SUMMER NIGHT is produced by dick clark productions. Allen Shapiro, Orly Adelson and R.A. Clark are executive producers. Barry Adelman is producer, and Bob Bardo is the executive in charge of production. Bob Romeo is executive producer for the Academy of Country Music.
