McGraw to headline special concert for SiriusXM

SiriusXM is celebrating 10 years of broadcasting country music with a Tim McGraw concert _ and it is bringing the singer to New York City for a performance.

The satellite radio network said Monday that McGraw will headline a special concert at the Beacon Theatre on April 27. Luke Bryan and The Band Perry are also slated to perform.

The audience will consist of SiriusXM contest winners, but those who cannot snag an invitation can catch the performance on three SiriusXM channels, including a new one _ "Tim McGraw Radio." It's scheduled to launch a few days before the concert.

McGraw, a Rayville native, is kicking off his "Emotional Traffic" tour April 8 in Corpus Christi, Texas.
