Country superstar Tim McGraw is just one of the celebs performing in a special concert for military members and families on Veterans Day on Nov. 10.
"It’s not every day we put on a show for 15,000 servicemen and women!” Tim tells Closer of his upcoming Veterans Day salute to the troops. “We’ll probably have a different sense of pride that night because of those guys.”
And it's a must-see show! “We're definitely gonna have fun,” Tim adds about the concert on Jacksonville, Fla.'s U.S Naval Station Mayport, which can be seen Nov. 10 at 8:45 p.m. ET at timmcgraw.com. “They give so much for us.”
Tim is no stranger to supporting our veterans. Last year, he helped launch the HomeFront program, which has awarded more than 70 mortgage-free homes to wounded warriors. This year, he will present another one to a deserving recipient during the special show.
“Having family members in the military definitely inspires me to do what I can,” the singer, 46, reveals, tipping his hat to anyone brave enough to enlist .
“I’ve seen firsthand what it’s like for families when someone is away and making that sacrifice. The whole family makes a sacrifice, so the least we can do is help give them a safe, comfortable place to live when they need that upon returning.”
