Tim McGraw Will Headline Concert for Sandy Hook

Tim McGraw will headline a Concert for Sandy Hook Promise, an organization founded in the wake of the shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut with the mission of protecting children from gun violence. The fundraiser will take place on July 17th at XFINITY Theatre in Hartford, Connecticut. One hundred percent of the net proceeds of this special event will benefit Sandy Hook Promise.Tickets for “Tim McGraw:  A Concert for Sandy Hook Promise” go on sale on Friday (April 17th) at 10 a.m. through LiveNation.com and Ticketmaster. Featured performers will include current tourmates Billy Currington and Chase Bryant, along with special surprise guests to be announced later.

This cause is close to Tim’s heart, as it is to the fiddle player in Tim’s touring band, Dean Brown, a longtime friend of Mark Barden, a musician and father of a child who was killed in the 2012 tragedy.
