Tim McGraw is giving away a mortgage-free house to a wounded or needy veteran at each of his 25 tour stops. McGraw says that the service of veterans is something that ordinary Americans need to do more to honor and this is just his way of giving back.
"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 according to theboot.com. "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."
McGraw is teaming up with a number of organizations in order to make this happen, including Operation Homefront, the Academy of Country Music's ACM Lifting Lives program, and The Premiere Group on behalf of the North Carolina Furniture Manufacturers.
McGraw will kick off the mortgage-free house giveaway tour, which also features Kenny Chesney, with a Memorial Day concert for military members at New York City's Beacon Theatre during Fleet Week.
