CORPUS CHRISTI-- One of the biggest country music artists ever will be returning to Corpus Christi in October.
The Stars Scholarship Fund announced Monday that Tim McGraw will perform at the American Bank Center on October 9th to highlight their annual extravaganza.
McGraw has sold more than 40 million records over a career that's spanned three decades.
He has 35 number one hits and three Grammy awards, making him one of the most successful artists ever.
Concert proceeds go towards the Stars Scholarship Fund.
Tony Lamantia, a fund organizer, says that support of Stars is crucial, and not only to students;
"It helps everyone, It helps the community, It's the single biggest factor in the success or failure of a community is the education of its citizens, so as far as I'm concerned, it helps everybody."
Tickets for the show go on sale this Friday.
The Stars Scholarship Fund expects to give out more than two and a half million dollars in scholarships next year.
