Tim McGraw, Jennifer Nettles, Luke Bryan, and Sara Evans to join 'Lionel Richie and Friends in Concert' -- EXCLUSIVE
Lionel Richie’s got once, twice, three times the friends you do.
As previously reported, CBS will be airing ACM Presents: Lionel Richie and Friends in Concert after the Academy of Country Music Awards telecast April 13.

Luke Bryan, Sara Evans, Tim McGraw, and Jennifer Nettles are the night’s newest additions, the ACM and Dick Clark Productions announced today.
