About Tim McGraw
For 20 years, McGraw has been providing that kind of 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 No. 1 singles. Since the release of his debut album in 1993, he has won three GRAMMYs, 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.

Tune-in Sunday, May 19, 2013 at 9:00 PM ET/PT on the CBS Television Network to watch fifteen-time ACM Award winner and music superstar with more than 40 million in album sales, Tim McGraw spotlight the hottest music of the summer. McGraw called on some of his favorite performers and friends from country music and beyond to help kick off the 2013 touring season in ACM PRESENTS: TIM McGRAW’S SUPERSTAR SUMMER NIGHT.

The two-hour concert event features Tim McGraw performing songs from his latest album Two Lanes of Freedom, and some of today’s chart-topping artists including Jason Aldean (“1994”), Dierks Bentley (“Summer on Fire”), Luke Bryan (“Crash My Party”), Brantley Gilbert (“Country Must Be Country Wide”), Faith Hill (“Piece of My Heart”), Keith Urban (“Long Hot Summer”), Florida Georgia Line with Nelly (“Cruise (Remix)”), Lady Antebellum (“Goodbye Town”) and The Band Perry (“DONE.”).

About Tim McGraw
For 20 years, McGraw has been providing that kind of 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 No. 1 singles. Since the release of his debut album in 1993, he has won three GRAMMYs, 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.

Fifteen-time ACM Award winner Tim McGraw is spotlighting the hottest music of the summer and calling on his friends 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.

 

Performers:
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-winning, chart-topping solo artist, Fogerty’s sound has encompassed everything from blues to country to southern swamp rock and roll. He has sold over 100 million records, earning 18 Gold Albums and 10 Platinum Albums.  Known as one of the greatest songwriters, singers and guitarists of all time, Fogerty was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 1993, won the Grammy Award for his album BLUE MOON SWAMP in 1997 and was inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2005. Fogerty will release his ninth solo album WROTE A SONG FOR EVERYONE – a celebration of his iconic songbook recorded in collaboration with some of today’s biggest superstars from the country, pop and rock worlds plus two new songs – on May 28, 2013.

 

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 over 30 million records worldwide, during which time she has celebrated thirteen #1 singles and twenty #1 videos.  Faith has won fifteen 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 Kelley from Ormond Beach, Florida) has been quickly garnering buzz among fans, media and several Superstars across genres, including Taylor Swift, Keith Urban, and GRAMMY-winning Hip Hop artist Nelly, with who 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 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 over 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 UK already, hitting #4 on iTunes and entering heavy rotation on BBC Radio 1. Meanwhile, down under in Australia, it’s been certified platinum. Other chart positions include #8 on iTunes in Ireland, and it’s climbing in Belgium, Germany, and beyond. However, “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 short years after they were honored with the New Artist of the Year award in 2011. The sibling trio’s sophomore album Pioneer will be released on April 2, 2013 and has already spawned the smash, RIAA Certified Platinum single, “Better Dig Two,” which quickly became the # 1 Billboard Hot Country Song, making it the fastest-rising song of the band’s career.  It is their third chart-topping single landing at #1 on the Country Radio Charts for two consecutive weeks.  The Band Perry is currently on Rascal Flatts’ “Changed Tour.”

 

Tickets for ACM PRESENTS: TIM McGRAW’S SUPERSTAR SUMMER NIGHT are on sale NOW at Ticketmaster, priced at $105, $155 and $205. Proceeds from ticket sales will benefit ACM Lifting Lives, the charitable arm of the Academy, and an organization that McGraw was closely affiliated with during his last tour.

About Tim McGraw
For 20 years, McGraw has been providing that kind of 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 No. 1 singles. Since the release of his debut album in 1993, he has won three GRAMMYs, 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.

Pitbull has risen to become a global superstar as both a recording and performing artist. The Miami native recently added to a long and growing list of hits with his first # 1, “Give Me Everything.” At the same time, his world tour sold out concerts in Latin America, Canada and Europe, before bringing the party to the United States, Japan and Australia. Pitbull’s new single “Feel This Moment” featuring Christina Aguilera is a worldwide smash and “Don’t Stop The Party” was another global radio and video hit that are featured on his new album, Global Warming.  It’s the highly anticipated follow-up to Planet Pit, which earned critical acclaim and enjoyed massive commercial success with sales of more than 1.7 million albums and 19 million singles. “Don’t Stop The Party” and “Feel This Moment” come on the heels of Pitbull’s 2 million-selling single, “Back In Time,” the chart-topping anthem from the action-adventure-comedy Men In Black 3.

About Tim McGraw
For 20 years, McGraw has been providing that kind of 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 No. 1 singles. Since the release of his debut album in 1993, he has won three GRAMMYs, 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.
