If you love Tim McGraw, this story is only going to make you love him more. The country music mega star is going to give away a mortgage-free home in each city where his upcoming concert tour, "Brothers of the Sun," makes a stop. Not just anyone can receive a home, however. The 25 homes will go to 25 needy or wounded service men or women and their families. What a great gift to those who sacrifice so much!
Do you know a veteran who is in need or has been wounded while fighting for his or her country? This campaign of providing houses is not just a way to say, "Thank you!" It also just might be what some veterans need to get them back on their feet.
It is wonderful to witness big stars in the film and music industry do something that brings happiness and joy to others instead of just promoting themselves. Many times, the good deeds and actions of one in the spotlight can ignite several more to take place.
McGraw obviously feels strongly about helping out veterans and, thankfully, realizes the leading role he plays in making a positive difference in the world.
"My sister's a veteran, my uncle's a veteran, my grandfather was a veteran, one of my best friends is a veteran. I've known people my whole life who are in service to America. And I think in my position to be able to do something like that is probably the ultimate thing. So to be able to go on tour and provide sort of a stable foundation for a veteran and their family is something I really look forward to."
The "Brothers of the Sun" tour, which will also feature country star Kenny Chesney, will kick off June 2 in Tampa, Florida. No doubt, Tim McGraw and Chesney will be entertaining their huge number of excited fans while also giving 25 military members one less thing to worry about and a show of gratitude for all they have done.
