Luke Bryan, Tim McGraw Added to Lionel Richie Tribute
Sara Evans, Jennifer Nettles Also on Board
Luke Bryan, Sara Evans, Tim McGraw and Jennifer Nettles have been added to the all-star lineup of artists scheduled to perform at the ACM Presents: Lionel Richie and Friends in Concert taping April 2 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.
The special concert event will include country collaborations with Lionel, featuring duets from his upcoming album, Tuskegee, out March 26, along with solo performances.
Some of the singer/songwriter’s greatest hits will be performed by Jason Aldean (“Say You, Say Me”), The Band Perry (“Penny Lover”), Luke (“Running With the Night”), Lady Antebellum (“Truly”), Martina McBride (“Still”), Jennifer (“Hello”) and Rascal Flatts (“Dancing on the Ceiling”).
Duets with Lionel will include “My Love” with Kenny Chesney, “Sail On” with Tim and “Lady” with Kenny Rogers.
For his part, Lionel is looking forward to the event. "If there were in life a big kids' play date, that’s what this is going to be," he tells CountryWeekly.com. "You are going to see some grown kids onstage acting completely crazy, celebrating exactly what we know how to do."
Tickets for the show are still available through Ticketmaster. Tickets proceeds will benefit ACM Lifting Lives, which works to improve lives through music.
The special will air April 13 on CBS.
