The Academy of Country Music and dick clark productions have announced the taping of an all-star concert special, ACM Presents: Tim McGraw’s Superstar Summer Night, on April 8 from the MGM Grand Garden Arena, where the ACM Awards will air the day prior (April 7).

The two-hour special, to be broadcast at a later date on CBS, will feature handpicked artists and friends of the fifteen time ACM Award winner across country, pop, and rock genres in addition to a few surprise special guests from the worlds of film and television.

“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,” said McGraw. “I also feel a responsibility to help raise some money and awareness for ACM Lifting Lives. 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.”

Designed to kick off the 2013 touring season, all proceeds of the show will benefit ACM Lifting Lives, the charitable arm of the Academy.

Tickets will be available to ACM Professional members and A-List Members first, on Wednesday, Jan. 23. General public tickets will be available Friday, Jan. 25 at the ACM’s official website.
