This year's Super Bowl weekend keeps getting more and more star-studded, as the NFL announced today (Jan. 28) that Tim McGraw will headline the official Super Bowl LIII pregame festivities.

The country superstar will take the stage at the NFL Tailgate Party on Sunday, Feb. 3 ahead of the big game. McGraw's performance of his new single "Thought About You" will be televised live on CBS's Super Bowl LIII Pregame show, The Super Bowl Today.

Along with McGraw, Aloe Blacc will perform at the NFL Tailgate Party earlier in the day. For his televised performance, the singer will be joined by Atlanta-based gospel group David Walker & High Praise.

McGraw and Blacc's performances are part of a stacked Super Bowl weekend. The inaugural Bud Light Super Bowl Music Fest kicks things off on Jan. 31 with Ludacris -- another Atlanta native -- who will be joined by Ciara and 21 Savage, as well as Migos, Lil Yachty, Metro Boomin', Lil Jon and Lil Baby.

The fest continues into the weekend, with performances from Post Malone and Aerosmith on Feb. 1 and Cardi B and Bruno Mars on Feb. 2. Maroon 5 will serve as this year's Super Bowl Halftime Show headliner, with Travis Scott and Big Boi set to make appearances during the show.
