The ACM PRESENTS: TIM McGRAW’S SUPERSTAR SUMMER NIGHT, tapes Monday, April 8, 2013 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas and Keith Urban has been added to the lineup of artists already scheduled to perform during this two-hour, star-studded concert.
The two-hour event will benefit ACM Lifting Lives, which is the philanthropic arm of the Academy of Country Music dedicated to improving lives through the power of music and will be broadcast at a later date on CBS Television Network.
“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 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.”

- Dierks Bentley
- Keith Urban
- Lady Antebellum
- Jason Aldean
