Tim McGraw recently gave an exclusive interview to the Academy of Country Music about HomeFront, his partnership with Chase, ACM Lifting Lives and the non-profit Operation Homefront, which gives mortgage-free homes to deserving military families.
The short interview was filmed at McGraw’s July 14 tour stop in Anaheim, CA where he presented the keys of a new Canoga Park, CA home to U.S. Marine Sgt. Anthony Hodge and his wife Laura. Hodge retired from the U.S. Marine Corps due to injuries sustained while deployed after ten years of service in Kuwait and Iraq.
To date, 18 homes have been awarded. Additionally, ACM Lifting Lives has donated $125,000 to the initiative for families to purchase necessities for the new homes.
“Our military families answer a call to action every day, and Operation Homefront gives civilians an opportunity to give back to them,” said McGraw. “Anyone can make a donation to support this effort, and we also hope to spread the word to military families that they are invited to apply for help, if they need it.”
