When Tim McGraw tells veterans they've earned the house he's giving them, he's not kidding.

Mad respect for the veterans, the country singer, and Operation Homefront.

This guy is like Nashville royalty.

With chart-topping hit after hit spanning decades and his high-profile marriage to Faith Hill, he could easily just bask in the glow of all his blessings and say "peace out" to everyone else.

But he keeps humble and rolls out the red carpet for others instead — namely, veterans.

By the time he was done with his "Shotgun Rider" tour over the summer, he gave away 36 houses to veterans who've returned from war. MORTGAGE-FREE. One at each tour stop along the way. And he's already given away over 100 homes to veterans since 2012 with the help of Operation Homefront and Chase Bank.

What is Operation Homefront?

Operation Homefront serves a variety of needs that can crop up for veterans in the gaps between their own resources and what Veterans Affairs can provide — needs like auto repair, emergency housing, food, and more. Visit their site to donate or to seek help as a veteran.

When McGraw was asked why this is important to him, his response was simple.

For the veterans he's helping, this program means the world.

Antebellum refers to an era in the American south before the civil war when black people were held as slaves.
