JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Country Star Tim McGraw ushered in Veterans Day with a special salute to our local military.
Among those in attendance at Sunday's show were military members from Kings Bay, NAS Jax and Naval Station Mayport. Fans tell us they were thrilled to get the opportunity to see McGraw perform in his 'Live From The Homefront Tour'.
"Words can't explain what it means to me to be here with my family," said Navy Veteran Regi May.
Tim McGraw spoke with Action News moments before he went on stage to salute the crowd of thousands.
"It's such a great opportunity - I lived here for two years - it's a perfect backdrop for it with Veterans day being tomorrow," McGraw said.
McGraw says it was easy for him to show up and perform because, he says, it's the military men and women who have a tough job.
Tim McGraw along with Chase Bank and Operation Homefront also gave away the keys to a brand new mortgage free home today.
The recipient, Wounded Warrior Army Specialist James Stone and his family will move into their new home on the Southside very soon.
