(Radio.com) Country fans will want to be in front of their TV sets Sunday night, when CBS presents Tim McGraw's Superstar Summer Night, an all-star concert featuring some of the genre's top artists all in one place.

The guest list, in fact, is massive. Lady Antebellum, Dierks Bentley, The Band Perry, Jason Aldean, 2013 ACM Entertainer of the Year winner Luke Bryan, Florida Georgia Line, rapper Nelly, and of course Tim's wife Faith Hill are among the performers. McGraw performs current single "Highway Don't Care" with Taylor Swift and Keith Urban, duets with Ne-Yo and Pitbull, and rocks out with CCR legend John Fogerty.

The show was taped April 8 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, a day after the Academy of Country Music Awards, and it airs Sunday, May 19 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on CBS. Earlier this year, McGraw released his 12th studio album, Two Lanes of Freedom.

As US99.5 on-air personality Trish Biondo points out in a new Radio.com Essentials profile on McGraw, the range of music represented on the show is no big surprise. "What's great about Tim is that he's a fan of music no matter what," she says. "He loves country music, but it's fun to see him go out and bring in artists that he's interested in and excited about."

Scott Borchetta, president and CEO of Big Machine (McGraw's new label), points to Tim's duet with Ne-Yo as a highlight of the show. "I love when Tim sings with Ne-Yo, because he sings completely differently. After the performance I spoke with Tim and said, 'We've got to cut a record like that, because you sing so incredibly well in that space.'"
