About this Article
When the producers of the Academy of Country Music's annual television special approached Tim McGraw about the 2013 edition, the singer immediately flashed on the program's format. "They were tribute shows," he said. Instead, McGraw decided to take the show in a new direction, recasting it as a summer tour preview. "ACM Presents: Tim McGraw's Superstar Summer Night" will air at 8 p.m. Sunday, May 19, on CBS.
