To honor all those who have served this Memorial Day, USO Metro NY and Chase partnered together to host Live From the Homefront - the first of many upcoming concerts featuring country superstar Tim McGraw.
His first experience performing for the troops, opening act Kip Moore quickly had everyone on their feet, laughing and singing along. Much to the troops’ delight, he even debuted a new song inspired by all those who serve that he and his band wrote together the night before!
Then Tim McGraw took the stage! Singing favorites new and old, the audience screamed and cheered for his entire performance. Shaking hands and handing out high fives, McGraw later said “These men and women go out and put their lives on the line to protect the simple freedoms we enjoy every day. Playing for them last night was a thrill for me, and it was just small gesture of appreciation.”
The Memorial Day performance kicked off McGraw’s involvement with the HomeFront program, an effort from Chase and Operation Homefront to help military families buy homes. The program will provide mortgage-free houses to 25 wounded service members and military men and women in need.
The whole performance was streamed live on YouTube and the Pentagon Channel. Here are some great pictures if you missed it! [slideshow] - Vyque Elessar, USO Director of New Media
