The Academy of Country Music and dick clark productions will tape an all-star concert special, ACM Presents: Tim McGraw’s Superstar Summer Night, on Monday, April 8 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. The concert will be broadcast at a later date on CBS. Tim will handpick the hottest acts of the summer and bring in his friends to kick off the 2013 touring season. All proceeds will benefit ACM Lifting Lives.
“I hope I can 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 ones I know they won’t want to miss,” Tim said. ”I also feel a responsibility to help raise some money and awareness for ACM Lifting Lives and all the good work they do. They supported me last summer with our HomeFront program and helped me give away a house to a Veteran in need in every market we played in, so I’m excited to get some of my friends together and repay the favor.”
The two-hour star event will feature performances and collaborations from country, pop, rock and more, as well as special guests from film and television. Tickets will go on sale to the general public on Friday, January 25 at 10 a.m. PST at www.ACMawards.com.
