Tim McGraw to Kick off Fourth of July at Stadium of Fire

tim mcgraw

Patriotism, fireworks and country superstar Tim McGraw — the perfect combination for a pre-Fourth of July celebration. Tim is headlining this year’s Stadium of Fire celebration on July 2.

“We think we’ve got an excellent show, and the whole show is built around patriotism,” said Paul Warner, executive director of the Freedom Festival. “We’re making a real effort to focus strictly on love of country and appreciation of military men and women and all the good things we do in the world and country.”

Tim is no stranger to honoring military members. He works with Operation Homefront, and organization which awards mortgage-free homes to veterans, according to his website. During his 2015 Shotgun Rider Tour, he was involved in awarding 36 homes to veterans.

One thing that’s different for the Stadium of Fire this year will be the length of the main performance. Last year there were people who wanted the Journey performance to last longer, so this year organizers decided to give Tim more time,

Warner said. He’ll have at least an hour, “maybe a little bit more.” But even with an hour, he may not get through all hits because there are so many.

There won’t be a backup performer like Stadium of Fire has had in years past, to give McGraw more time to perform, Warner added.

The Stadium of Fire has grown to become one of the United States’ premier patriotic celebrations, attracting an average of more than 40,000 people. It’s televised live to more than one million military men and women in more than 100 countries via the American Forces Network.

There are still tickets available for this year’s event.  To buy tickets, go to freedomfestival.org.
