McGraw is launching a unique fan interactive program with his performance at the ACM Awards on Sunday (April 6).

They will also be entered to win a season pass for two tickets to each of McGraw's upcoming summer tour dates, including an all-expenses-paid trip to the tour's opening night.
The Sundown Heaven Town Tour will kick off May 8 and visit 30 cities this summer, with opening acts Kip Moore and Cassadee Pope.

"When you finish making an album, all you want is to have everyone hear it as soon as possible," McGraw says. "I'm in the unique position this year that I'm able to tour ahead of the album and introduce the fans to these songs early. I've never done anything like this before, but in a world driven by immediate gratification, I want to be able to play a song live somewhere and then have it available for download right then. You just never know where new music might pop up over the next few months… It's going to be a fun summer!"
