TUESDAY, APRIL 2, 2013 - Country music fans everywhere can now experience performances from their favorite artists with today's launch of "ACM Sessions," a new online concert series from the Academy of Country Music and CBS Interactive. The new series, available on CBS.com, brings fans year-round access to country music's biggest stars with on-demand performances and interviews.

The first "ACM Sessions" performance launched today and features two-time ACM Award winner Luke Bryan. The performance was taped in front of a live audience at the legendary Whiskey a Go Go on Hollywood's Sunset Strip and features Bryan performing some of his hits and songs off his new album, Spring Break... Here to Party, along with a Q&A about his music and upcoming role as co-host of the 48TH ANNUAL ACADEMY OF COUNTRY MUSIC AWARDS, which will be broadcast live from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas Sunday, April 7 (8:00-11:00 PM, live ET/delayed PT) on the CBS Television Network.

"'ACM Sessions' is a great addition to our wealth of music programming, including 'Live on Letterman,' the GRAMMYs, 'Last.fm Sessions' and more, and gives us an opportunity to bring fans regular access to the superstars we feature during the annual Academy of Country Music Awards," said Marc DeBevoise, EVP and GM, Entertainment, News and Sports, CBS Interactive. "Working with the Academy of Country Music to extend our partnership into an ongoing music series is a great opportunity to continue our long-standing tradition of supporting musicians and grow our focus on music and performances."
