Monday’s taping of ACM Presents: Tim McGraw’s Superstar Summer Night promises “high octane performances and music collaborations,” and even Jason Aldean is expecting an unpredictable night.
“I think a lot of us are not really a hundred percent sure what it is…We don't really know what to expect yet,” he says. “But obviously, you're gonna have a lot of us there, and it should be a fun night.”
With rappers Nelly and Pitbull set to join artists like John Fogerty, Faith Hill, Florida Georgia Line and The Band Perry, it looks like Jason is probably right. R&B artist Ne-Yo will be in the mix as well, while Dierks Bentley, Luke Bryan, Taylor Swift, Keith Urban and Lady Antebellum will all preview their summer tours.
Jason believes the two-hour special to kick off the summer tour season is even good for the acts that don’t happen to be on the show.
“It's like you're promoting all the big tours that are going on in country music and just the format in general,” he says. “The more people we have listening to our brand of music the better for all of us.”
But for Jason, it was one of his heroes’ names in the title that sealed the deal.
“I'm a big fan of Tim's and the fact that he's a part of it obviously was a big reason that I wanted to do it.”
You can see ACM Presents: Tim McGraw’s Superstar Summer Night Sunday May 19 at 9:00 ET on CBS.
