It's true, people. Tim McGraw is coming to the big Bing for the Dick's Sporting Goods Open. (Well, Endicott technically.)
If you've never been to a Dick's Open concert, it's pretty phenomonal. Music under the stars on a golf green.
Concert is August 16th. Tickets go on sale April 20th.
Available at tickemaster.com, Broome Arena B.O., and at Dick's stores.
We're too lazy to do our own reporting, so we've helpfully copy and pasted the press release below.
But before that, enjoy this recent People magazine vid which includes Tim McGraw shirtless. His ludicrously chiseled abs are prominently featured. You're welcome.
