Tim McGraw is launching a new program called HomeFront in partnership with Chase and Operation Homefront to award mortgage-free homes to wounded warriors and service members at each of the 25 concert dates on his summer tour.
To launch the HomeFront program, McGraw will perform a special Memorial Day concert at New York City’s Beacon Theatre during Fleet Week in partnership with Chase and USO. The show will be streamed live at livefromthehomefront.com, youtube.com/countrynow, and pentagonchannel.mil.
“My sister’s a veteran of the first Gulf War. My uncle was a Vietnam veteran and my grandfather was a World War II veteran. I’ve always felt a deep sense of respect and obligation to our troops,” says McGraw. “Being able to reward them for their dedicated work with a new home will be even more rewarding for us. It feels so good to give back to them, and to have the opportunity to entertain them on Memorial Day is something I’m honored to do.”
Additionally, McGraw will be on hand for the Tug McGraw Foundation’s inaugural Celebrity Sporting Clay Shootout presented by DeltaSports.TV taking place June 5 at Nashville Gun Club. Proceeds from the event will beneft the Tug McGraw Foundation’s efforts to improve the lives of military service members suffering from Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI).
Joining McGraw for the Shootout will be Keith Anderson, Luke Bryan, Craig Campbell, Troy Gentry, Brantley Gilbert, Josh Gracin, JT Hodges, Steve Holy, Jeff McMahon, Eddie Montgomery, Jon Pardi, Josh Thompson, Brad Warren, Brett Warren, and the Nashville Predators’ Mike Fisher. Several sporting clay professionals will also be present to add their expertise to the 15 competing teams. More info here.
