NASHVILLE (AP) — Tim McGraw will play a special concert for members of the U.S. military and their families on Veterans Day weekend.

McGraw will perform in Jacksonville, Florida, on Nov. 10.

The show will be streamed live on the Pentagon Channel and online at www.TimMcGraw.com and McGraw’s YouTube channel.

McGraw says it’s easy for him to show up and play music for men and women who have the really tough jobs, but it’s one small thing he can do to show his appreciation.
