Tim McGraw To Headline Concert Special During ACM Week In Vegas
January 23, 2013 at 11:04 AM (PT)
The ACADEMY OF COUNTRY MUSIC will tape a two-hour concert special featuring BIG MACHINE RECORDS artist TIM McGRAW on MONDAY, APRIL 8th called “ACM PRESENTS: TIM McGRAW’s SUPERSTAR SUMMER NIGHT.”
For the special, TIM personally chose several artists across all genres (including Country, Top 40 and Rock) to join him during the concert to help kick off the 2013 summer touring season. "I hope I can help turn the fans onto 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,” he said.
All proceeds from the concert will benefit ACM LIFTING LIVES. McGRAW added, “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.”
“ACM PRESENTS: TIM McGRAW’s SUPERSTAR SUMMER NIGHT” will take place at the MGM GRAND GARDEN ARENA in LAS VEGAS and is part of “THE WEEK VEGAS GOES COUNTRY,” a full week of Country music-based events surrounding the 48th Annual ACADEMY OF COUNRTY MUSIC AWARDS. It will air on CBS-TV at a later date. Tickets for ACM members will be available on WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 23rd, and starting FRIDAY, JANUARY 25th for the general public.
