Tim McGraw has partnered with Chase and Operation Homefront to launch ‘HomeFront,’ a nationwide program that will award mortgage-free homes to wounded warriors and service members at each concert stop this summer. Additionally, ACM Lifting Lives, the charitable arm of the Academy of Country Music, and The Premier Group on behalf of the North Carolina Furniture Manufacturers, have made substantial contributions to support the program.
Tim has a long history of supporting veterans and military families. To kick off the HomeFront program, he will perform a special Memorial Day concert of remember and gratitude for service men and women at New York City’s Beacon Theatre during Fleet Week. The show will stream live via YouTube and to military bases around the world on The Pentagon Channel.
“My sister’s a veteran of the first Gulf War,” Tim said. “My uncle was a Vietnam veteran and my grandfather was a World War II veteran. I’ve always felt a deep sense of respect and obligation to our troops. Being able to reward them for their dedicated work with a new home will be even more rewarding for us. It feels so good to give back to them, and to have the opportunity to entertain them on Memorial Day is something I’m honored to do.”
“We are grateful to our service members, veterans and their families for their service and sacrifices,” Frank Bisignano, Chief Administrative Officer and Chief Executive Officer of Mortgage Banking at JPMorgan Chase & Co, said. “We are honored to partner with Tim McGraw and Operation Homefront to award mortgage-free homes. It’s a small way to say thank you to people who have done so much to protect our nation and our freedom.”
