Country icon, Tim McGraw, spent Memorial Day performing for a packed audience of service members in New York City. The show was streamed live via YouTube and to military bases around the world on The Pentagon Channel.
“These men and women go out and put their lives on the line to protect the simple freedoms we enjoy every day,” said McGraw. “Playing for them last night was a thrill for me, and it was just small gesture of appreciation. I hope there will be a lot more of these types of shows as we get deeper into our HomeFront program. The energy in The Beacon was electric last night…it was the perfect way to spend Memorial Day.”
McGraw recently launched “HomeFront,” along with Chase and Operation HomeFront, to award mortgage-free homes to wounded warriors and servicemembers in need. These homes will be given away at each summer concert date.
