TIM MCGRAW EXTENDS HOMEFRONT PROGRAM

TIM MCGRAW EXTENDS HOMEFRONT PROGRAM WITH CHASE AND OPERATION HOMEFRONT TO AWARD 31 MORE HOMES TO VETERANS ON SUMMER TOUR STOPS
 
TWO LANES OF FREEDOM 2013 TOUR Kicks Off In Birmingham May 2
 
Nashville,
TN- May 1, 2013- Country superstar Tim McGraw is continuing his
HomeFront program by awarding mortgage-free homes to military veterans
and their families.  Last year, McGraw teamed up with Chase and
Operation Homefront to launch the program which has awarded
over 30 newly renovated mortgage-free homes provided by Chase to
deserving military families so far.  This summer, McGraw, Chase and
Operation Homefront will double that number by awarding a home at each
of his 31 tour stops.  McGraw has a long history and deep interest in
supporting veterans and military families and wanted to find another way
to honor our veterans and give back to them for their commitment and
service to our country.  
 
“Launching
our HomeFront program made last summer so much more special than I
could have originally imagined.  I can honestly say that I got as much –
or more – out of the experience than the veterans who received the new
homes and assistance,” said McGraw.  “These families made an incredible
mark on me, and I’m more grateful than I’ve ever been for the sacrifices
they make every day to serve our country.   I’m just honored to be a
part of this program, and I look forward to working with Chase and
Operation Homefront to take it even further this summer.”
 
McGraw’s
continued partnership with Chase is part of a larger initiative to help
raise awareness about the issues facing veterans and their families
including employment, homeownership and education.  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.   
 
McGraw’s TWO LANES OF FREEDOM 2013 TOUR, presented by Pennzoil, will crank up this
summer in Birmingham, AL on May 2 and continue on to 30 cities through
July.   The U.S. trek, will also feature emerging artists Brantley
Gilbert and Love and Theft.  After more than two decades on the road,
McGraw’s ability to entertain and command a crowd continues to be a
defining characteristic of both his artistry and superstar status.  Tampa Tribune described McGraw’s live show as “effortless” while the Atlanta Journal Constitution remarked “he’s so casually cool onstage” and OC Weekly said “It’s a bold claim, but McGraw could and should be poised to reign as king of country music…”
