NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - The Academy of Country Music will honor Miranda Lambert, Martina McBride, Reba McEntire, Jennifer Nettles and Carrie Underwood with a television tribute.
"Girl's Night Out: Superstar Women of Country" will be taped April 4 - the day after the ACM Awards - at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas and will air later on CBS.

The Monday after the awards has become a showcase for country music. Last year the ACM paid tribute to Brooks & Dunn and honored George Strait in 2009.
