Tim McGraw is coming back to the CMA Music Fest.

McGraw returns after a nine-year absence and joins Alan Jackson, Billy Currington and Kellie Pickler as new additions to this summer's lineup for the annual festival in Nashville.

A Country Music Association news release says McGraw's last appearance came in 2001 when he was a surprise guest of performer Kenny Chesney.

Jackson will be making his 16th appearance since 1990.

The CMA announced a roster of headliners last month that includes many of the genre's top names, including Brad Paisley, Reba McEntire, Rascal Flatts, Keith Urban and Lady Antebellum.

The festival runs from June 10-13.
