MCALLEN, TX (KVEO NEWSCENTER 23) — Country music star Tim McGraw is the headliner for this year's Stars Scholarship concert.
The announcement was made in McAllen Monday. The three-time Grammy Award winner will play at State Farm Arena on October 8th.
The Stars Fund gives scholarships to students in the area. In previous years, Carrie Underwood and Blake Shelton have headlined the concert.
"They seem to be so diverse," Val Peisen of sponsor L&F Distributors said about country musicians. "Sometimes they seem to not necessarily be country they kind of span not only country, they have a little bit of rock with them, so country artists are not necessarily what we're married to, but they have become very popular right now. So that's the genre we're going to."
Tickets for the concert go on sale this Friday at 10 a.m.
