In support of Lionel Richie's upcoming album, Tuskegee, artists Tim McGraw, Jennifer Nettles, Luke Bryan and Sara Evans have been added to lineup mix for April's "ACM Presents: Lionel Richie And Friends In Concert -- A Lifetime Of Hits."

The event, which will also feature country stars Kenny Chesney, Jason Aldean, Lady Antebellum, Kenny Rogers, Rascal Flatts, The Band Perry, and Martina McBride is set to air after the Academy Of Country Music Awards on April 13.

"Being a part of the ACMs is an honor," Richie told the Associated Press. "I am excited to share such an amazing evening with some of my closest friends."

Tuskegee, due out March 27, will include a number of duets with some of the biggest names in country music including Chesney, Shania Twain and more.

"I didn't know there was new and old," Richie told CMT. "All I knew was that these are country artists and everybody's on board. And then I got into the album and realized, 'Holy mackerel, we've got a melting pot here of something amazing.'"

"Lionel Richie And Friends In Concert" will air on April 13 on CBS. For a list of performances, head over to EW.
