Tim Mcgraw is to celebrate America's troops with a free concert in honour of his country's servicemen.
The Live Like You Were Dying hitmaker will perform at the Tour For The Troops event and headline a day of fun activities for members of the military and their families at Camp Pendleton in California next month (13Nov11).
He says, "I am proud to perform for the troops and to celebrate our heroes, bringing attention to the need to improve quality of life among men and women who serve our country."
The event strives to raise awareness about the plight of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (Ptsd) among soldiers and the resources made available to those suffering with major depression and psychological issues upon returning from active duty.
