Country music superstars Dierks Bentley, Keith Urban and Lady Antebellum along with international music sensation Pitbull, have been added to the all-star lineup of artists 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. They join previously announced performers Jason Aldean, Luke Bryan, Taylor Swift and Ne-Yo. The special will be broadcast at a later date on the CBS Television Network.

Fifteen-time ACM Award winner Tim McGraw is spotlighting the hottest music of the summer and calling on his friends to help kick off the 2013 tour season. ACM PRESENTS: TIM MCGRAW'S SUPERSTAR SUMMER NIGHT will feature high-octane performances and musical collaborations in a two-hour, star-studded concert event to benefit ACM Lifting Lives, the philanthropic arm of the Academy of Country Music dedicated to improving lives through the power of music.

Dierks Bentley is an ACM Award-winning singer/songwriter who has forged his own brand of country music, combining classic country songwriting, influences of bluegrass instrumentation and the energy of rock and roll. Bentley's sixth studio album Home, released in 2012, debuted at #1 and has spawned three chart-topping hits, marking 10 career #1 songs as a singer and songwriter. Currently, he is on the "Locked & Reloaded Tour" with longtime friend Miranda Lambert. On April 6, Bentley will headline the ACM Party for a Cause Festival, a two-day outdoor music festival during "The Week Vegas Goes Country(R)." On April 7, he will perform at the ACM Fan Jam.

Keith Urban is a seven-time ACM Award winner, who has sold more than 15 million albums. This spring will bring the release of brand new music, his fourth annual All For The Hall benefit, a highly-anticipated tour, which gets underway this July, and continued filming of "American Idol." He has celebrated 14 #1s, including 28 Top Five hits and has had five consecutive platinum or multi-platinum albums. In 2010, he was given the Academy's prestigious Jim Reeves International Award in recognition of his outstanding contributions to the acceptance of country music worldwide.

Lady Antebellum is an ACM award-winning trio comprised of Hillary Scott, Charles Kelley and Dave Haywood. Recently, the band received their fourth ACM Award nomination for Vocal Group of the Year, an award they have won for three consecutive years. Lady Antebellum's current single, "Downtown," is the lead single off of their upcoming fourth Capitol Nashville release, Golden, scheduled to come out May 7. The track hit big out of the gate, becoming the trio's highest-charting debut on the Country Radio Charts.

Pitbull has risen to become a global superstar as both a recording and performing artist. Recently, the Miami native added to a long and growing list of hits with his first #1, "Give Me Everything." His world tour sold out concerts in Latin America, Canada and Europe, before bringing the party to the United States, Japan and Australia. Pitbull's new single, "Don't Stop The Party," is gaining heavy momentum on the radio and video charts and is featured on his new album, Global Warming. It is the highly anticipated follow-up to Planet Pit, which earned critical acclaim and enjoyed massive commercial success with sales of more than 1.4 million albums and 18 million singles. "Don't Stop The Party" comes on the heels of Pitbull's two million-selling single "Back in Time," the chart-topping anthem from the action-adventure comedy "Men In Black."

For 20 years, Tim McGraw has provided 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 33 #1 singles. Since the release of his debut album in 1993, he has won three GRAMMYs, 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 to 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 more than $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.
