Country star Tim McGraw will be celebrating Veterans Day with a special concert for members of the military and their families on November 10th at U.S. Naval Station Mayport which will be broadcast on TV and the web.

McGraw teamed up with JPMorgan Chase for the special show as part of the Operation Homefront effort to help servicemembers which has given away 70 mortgage-free homes to wounded warriors and military members in need since the program launched in 2011.

Fans that can't attend the show will be able to watch Live From The HomeFront: Tim McGraw live on the Pentagon Channel as well as on YouTube and McGraw's official website. The show will be available worldwide beginning at 8:45 PM EST.

McGraw had this to say about the show, "It's easy for me to show up and play music to honor the men and women who have the really tough jobs. To me, it's just one small thing I can do to help show how much we appreciate what they put on the line and what these families sacrifice every single day. Since we started this program 18 months ago, I have had the privilege of meeting many servicemembers and their families and have heard many inspiring stories. It's something I'm proud to do and want to take it as far as we can!"

Capt. Wes McCall, Naval Station Mayport Commanding Officer adds, "On the eve of Veteran's Day, this concert is a gift and tribute to the brave men and women of our military who have served their country. This is an opportunity to say thank you to our servicemembers and their families who wear the cloth of this great nation and to those who have gone before us defending freedom and democracy around the world," he said. "I extend my heart-felt thanks to Chase and Tim McGraw for choosing Naval Station Mayport as the location to share their time and talents in honor of America's fighting forces."

Mel Martinez, chairman of JPMorgan Chase in the Southeast U.S., says: "It's an honor for us to partner with Tim McGraw and the Navy to thank our servicemen and women, past and present, and their families. We are happy to be able to give back through this concert as well as through our firm's military programs to a community that has given so much to us."
