These artists join previously announced performers Jason Aldean, Dierks Bentley, Luke Bryan, Ne-Yo, Pitbull, Taylor Swift, Keith Urban and Lady Antebellum.

Fifteen-time ACM Award winner Tim McGraw is spotlighting the hottest music of the summer and calling on his friends from all areas of the music world to help kick off the 2013 touring 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, and an organization that McGraw was closely affiliated with during his last tour.

For more than four decades, John Fogerty has been an American treasure. As one of the most revered and influential artists to emerge in the 1960s, he continues to be a vital part of the musical landscape. As lead singer, guitarist and songwriter of Creedence Clearwater Revival and as a GRAMMY(R) Award-winning, chart-topping solo artist, Fogerty's sound has encompassed everything from blues to country to southern swamp rock and roll. Known as one of the greatest songwriters, singers and guitarists of all time, Fogerty was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1993.

Faith Hill has established herself as one of the music industry's top vocalists, with a voice that is as powerful as it is recognizable. Her career has been highlighted by the sale of more than 30 million records worldwide, during which time she has celebrated 13 #1 singles and 20 #1 videos. Hill has won 15 Academy Of Country Music awards, including Female Vocalist of the Year in 1998, 1999 and 2000, Single Record of the Year for "This Kiss" in 1998, and the ACM Career Achievement Award in 2006, among many others.

Since releasing their multi-week #1 double-platinum debut single "Cruise," breakout duo Florida Georgia Line - Tyler Hubbard from Monroe, Georgia and Brian Kelly from Ormond Beach, Florida - has been quickly garnering buzz among fans, media and several superstars across genres, including Taylor Swift, Keith Urban and GRAMMY(R) Award-winning hip-hop artist Nelly, with whom they have teamed up on a "Cruise" remix. FGL's gold-certified "Get Your Shine On" is Top 10 and rising at Country radio. Their energetic live show and compelling tunes landed them coveted opening slots on Taylor Swift's "The Red Tour" and Luke Bryan's "Dirt Road Diaries Tour" this year. The Republic Nashville duo brings a fresh combination of eclectic beats and expressive lyrics to the genre. Producer Joey Moi showcases their unique sound throughout their Gold-certified debut album, Here's to the Good Times, which earned the highest debut album sales of 2012 for a new country artist. They have appeared on "Live! With Kelly & Michael," "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon," "Fox & Friends" and secured a presenter spot during the 2012 American Music Awards.

GRAMMY(R) Award-winning multi-platinum superstar, entrepreneur, actor and philanthropist Nelly is on top of the world once more. He's gearing up to release his long-awaited seventh full-length studio album, M.O., later this year. Already, the hit single "Hey Porsche" has laid the groundwork for another smash from the artist. Upon the song's debut, it moved more than 100,000 digital singles in less than week. "Hey Porsche" also marks Nelly's 22nd charted Top 40 song, which makes him the 11th most-charted Top 40 hits artist of all-time. Internationally, the song has reached gold status in the U.K. already, hitting #4 on iTunes and entering heavy rotation on BBC Radio 1. In Australia, it's been certified platinum. Other chart positions include #8 on iTunes in Ireland, and the song is climbing in Belgium, Germany and beyond. "Hey Porsche" isn't the only anthem on M.O. Nelly also teamed up with production powerhouses such as Pharrell (Jay-Z, Snoop, Justin Timberlake), Rico Love (Beyonce, Usher), DJ Frank E (Kanye West, Enrique Iglesias, FloRida), Detail (Lil Wayne, T-Pain), Da Internz (Rihanna, Nas) and Bei-Major. Nelly also invited some of his closest friends and today's hottest artists to collaborate, including Trey Songz, T.I., Akon, Pitbull and Florida Georgia Line. M.O. is shaping up to be one of the hottest hip-hop events of 2013.

The Band Perry returns to the ACM Awards this year with their third Vocal Group of the Year nomination, just two years after they were honored with the New Artist of the Year award in 2011. The sibling trio's sophomore album, Pioneer, was released on April 2 and has already spawned the smash RIAA Certified Platinum single "Better Dig Two." The hit quickly became the # 1 Billboard Hot Country Song, making it the fastest-rising song of the band's career and their third chart-topping single, landing at #1 on the Country Radio Charts for two consecutive weeks. Currently, The Band Perry is on Rascal Flatts' "Changed Tour."

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 33 #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 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.
