Wow, what a great deed!
Tim McGraw has joined forces with Chase and Operation Homefront to do a really great thing for a few very lucky soldiers.
During each stop on his upcoming Brothers of the Sun tour with Kenny Chesney, Tim will give away a mortgage-free home. In all, 25 homes will be presented to veterans and their families.
“My sister’s a veteran, my uncle’s a veteran, my grandfather was a veteran, one of my best friends is a veteran,” McGraw said in an interview. “I’ve known people my whole life who are in service to America. And I think in my position to be able to do something like that is probably the ultimate thing. So to be able to go on tour and provide sort of a stable foundation for a veteran and their family is something I really look forward to.”
Tim will kick off the festivities with a Memorial Day concert in New York City for military members before heading off on his massive tour on June 2 in Tampa, Florida.
Fans can watch a live stream of the show on YouTube and it also will be available to military bases around the world via The Pentagon Channel website. Fans can watch the concert this Sunday.
