CURB/NASHVILLE star TIM McGRAW made a day even more special for JARED LaDUKE recently, who was severely injured in IRAQ two years ago. LaDUKE was to receive a furnished apartment in TEXAS and McGRAW showed up to welcome him, his wife and two year old son TALON home.
"And when we walked in, the whole apartment is fully furnished with brand new stuff. I was in shock," LaDUKE told CMT. "Then Tim McGRAW walks in a few minutes later. Like as if a furnished apartment ain't enough? It was so surreal. My wife was totally tearing up. TIM said, 'I was just in the neighborhood, so I thought I'd stop by. I was just wondering if I could use y'all's bathroom.' He walked around with us, then picked up TALON and walked him into his new room that they'd decorated with THOMAS THE TANK stuff."
A few days after McGRAW’s visit, the family received a package full of more THOMAS THE TANK ENGINE trains and tracks. It came with a note that said "It was a real pleasure getting to meet you, TALON! Sincerely, TIM MCGRAW."
