TIM
MCGRAW, CHASE AND THE U.S. NAVY BRING FREE CONCERT TO JACKSONVILLE FOR
MILITARY MEMBERS AND THEIR FAMILIES TO CELEBRATE VETERANS DAY
 
Nashville,
TN- Oct. 9, 2013- Country superstar Tim McGraw is set to perform a
special concert in Jacksonville, FL on Sunday, Nov. 10 for military
members and their families at U.S. Naval Station Mayport to celebrate
Veterans Day.  “Chase Presents Live From The HomeFront: Tim McGraw” will also be broadcast live on the Pentagon Channel and online at
TimMcgraw.com and
https://www.youtube.com/user/timmcgraw starting at 8:45 PM EST, bringing the concert to fans worldwide. 
“It’s
easy for me to show up and play music to honor the men and women who
have the really tough jobs,” said McGraw.  “To me, it’s just one small
thing I can do to help show how much we appreciate what they put on the
line and what these families sacrifice every single day. Since we
started this program 18 months ago, I have had the privilege of meeting
many servicemembers and their families and have heard many inspiring
stories.  It’s something I’m proud to do and want to take it as far as
we can!”
“It’s
an honor for us to partner with Tim McGraw and the Navy to thank our
servicemen and women, past and present, and their families,” said Mel
Martinez, chairman of JPMorgan Chase in the Southeast U.S. “We are happy
to be able to give back through this concert as well as through our
firm’s military programs to a community that has given so much to us.”
Naval
Station Mayport is one of three Navy bases in the Jacksonville, FL area
and home to nearly 5,000 uniformed servicemembers, their families and
2,000 Department of Defense civilian employees. There are more than 1.5
million veterans who call Florida their home.
“On
the eve of Veteran’s Day, this concert is a gift and tribute to the
brave men and women of our military who have served their country. This
is an opportunity to say thank you to our servicemembers and their
families who wear the cloth of this great nation and to those who have
gone before us defending freedom and democracy around the world,” said
Capt. Wes McCall, Naval Station Mayport Commanding Officer. “I extend my
heart-felt thanks to Chase and Tim McGraw for choosing Naval Station
Mayport as the location to share their time and talents in honor of
America’s fighting forces.”
Since
McGraw partnered with Chase and Operation Homefront over a year ago to
create the HomeFront program, they have awarded more than 70
mortgage-free homes to wounded warriors and military members in need and
will give another to a deserving family on Nov. 10.  With one million
servicemembers projected to transition out of the military by 2016, the
HomeFront program helps returning veterans successfully transition back
to civilian life and build a solid foundation for the future. Chase has
provided more than 600 mortgage-free homes to military families through
its nonprofit partners as part of an initiative to award 1,000 homes to
deserving veterans and their families.
Awarding
homes is one part of a broader program JPMorgan Chase launched in 2011
aimed at positioning transitioning servicemembers, veterans and their
families for successful and happy post-service lives. The bank is a
founding member of the 100,000 Jobs Mission, a coalition of 120 leading
companies working together to collectively hire 100,000 veterans by
2020. In less than three years, the coalition members have already hired
more than 77,000 U.S. military veterans.
McGraw’s
latest single, “Southern Girl,” off his current album TWO LANES OF
FREEDOM is quickly climbing up the Top 10 on the radio charts and comes
on the heels of his 34th career No. one hit.  He recently received three
nominations for November’s CMA Awards for his PLATINUM certified No.
one single “Highway Don’t Care,” an all-star collaboration with Taylor
Swift, featuring Keith Urban on guitar.  Over his career, McGraw has
sold over 40 million albums, won three GRAMMY’s, 15 ACM Awards, 12 CMA
Awards and 10 AMA’s, while simultaneously maintaining a parallel career
as a successful actor in such films as the Oscar nominated The Blind Side, Country Strong, Friday Night Lights and the upcoming Disney production, Tomorrowland starring George Clooney and directed by Brad Bird, scheduled for release in theaters late 2014.
