Tim McGraw is an icon in the country music industry. With more than 40 million copies of his albums sold to date, McGraw is the eighth best-selling artist in the US and third best-selling country singer. His connection to the country music industry runs much deeper than his own involvement as a singer and songwriter. McGraw's wife, Faith Hill, is a well-respected country artist as well.
Tim McGraw tickets are always a hot item wherever he goes on tour. For McGraw, a desire to give back has led to his involvement with a number of charitable organizations. While some of the charitable events McGraw gives his time to were his own idea, others are designed to benefit larger communities spread out across the United States.
Following his initial rise to fame in 1994, McGraw founded an annual event near his hometown in northeast Louisiana. Known as Swampstock, the event started out as a charity softball game to support local youth baseball programs. Today the program includes a celebrity softball game and concert event that attracts roughly 11,000 visitors. Proceeds from Tim McGraw ticket sales at Swampstock not only fund equipment and parks for Little League associations in the area, but also fund college scholarships for students in the area.
In 1996 McGraw began using the proceeds from the sale of Tim McGraw tickets to benefit the Country Music Foundation Hall of Fame. The event consisted of an annual concert on New Year's Eve in Nashville, TN. The 1997 event raised more than $100,000 for the foundation, making it one of the most successful years for the event.
One of McGraw's famous fund-raising tactics is his so-called "Bread and Water Tour." While out on the road for concert tours, McGraw will often randomly select a local club in which to perform a last-minute concert the night before scheduled dates. All the proceeds from the sale of Tim McGraw tickets to these events goes to a local charity supporting the community.
Other charitable efforts on behalf of McGraw include involvement with the American Red Cross, the Brett Favre Fourward Foundation, and Nashville Rising. Perhaps the greatest Tim McGraw tickets available throughout the years are those that go to members of the United States Armed Forces. McGraw has performed at home and overseas in front of members of all four branches of the United States military during the decade-long War on Terror.
As the summer of 2014 gets underway, McGraw is preparing to hit the open road for an extensive summer tour schedule. The Sundown Heaven Town Tour is scheduled to open in Pittsburgh, PA on 6 June 2014 and will crisscross the United States and Canada throughout June, July, and August. The final event on the concert tour is scheduled for 31 August 2014 in Cherokee, NC.
Tim McGraw tickets remain on sale for all dates on the Sundown Heaven Town Tour, as well as two scheduled events after the conclusion of the tour. Those events are scheduled for 12 September and 8 November in Normal, IL and Laughlin, NV, respectively.
