While on the road this summer, Tim McGraw gave away 25 homes to veterans in need through his HomeFront program. Tim partnered with Chase, Operation HomeFront and ACM Lifting Lives for the project to present the mortgage-free homes, and Tim personally met with each family backstage before his concerts.
“Each family had touching stories and made an indelible mark on me,” Tim says. “From the Delucia family’s amazing story of recovery and strength through physical injuries the first night in Tampa to the Connor family, who we surprised this past weekend at their new home with a puppy for their daughter Molly…I will never forget any of them.”
Tim’s work on behalf of U.S. troops isn’t over though. He says, “The need to take care of the men and women who fight and sacrifice so much for us is great, and this program is only making a dent. I definitely hope to do more down the road.”
Now that Tim has wrapped up the Brothers of the Sun tour with Kenny Chesney, he’s looking forward to launching his Soul 2 Soul shows with wife Faith Hill at the Venetian in Las Vegas starting December 7.
