Tim McGraw wrapped his HomeFront program this weekend in Boston, capping off a summer long campaign to award mortgage-free homes to veterans in need at each tour stop. Along with Chase, Operation Homefront, and ACM Lifting Lives, the program relieved an unimaginable amount of stress for families who already sacrifice so much.
McGraw has a long history and deep interest in supporting veterans and military families and wanted to find another way to honor and support the vets. Through this program, he was able to meet each family and hear their inspiring personal stories as they walked side by side with him to the stage at each show.
"Each family had touching stories and made an indelible mark on me. 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," said McGraw. "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."
After wrapping the record-breaking Brothers of the Sun Tour with Kenny Chesney, McGraw is set to prepare for his limited engagement at The Venetian in Las Vegas with wife and vocal powerhouse Faith Hill. "Soul2Soul at The Venetian" marks the first time in 6 years since McGraw and Hill have performed in the US together and opens on Dec. 7, covering 10 weekends through April 2013.
