Tim McGraw will headline a concert for Sandy Hook this summer and dedicate the proceeds to an organization aimed at protecting children from gun violence.

McGraw will perform at the XFINITY Theatre in Hartford, Connecticut, on July 17. All the proceeds will benefit the organization Sandy Hook Promise.

In 2012, 20 first-graders and six educators were killed in a massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown.

"Tim McGraw: A Concert for Sandy Hook Promise" will include McGraw's tour mates, Billy Currington and Chase Bryant. Special guests will be announced at a later date.

Tickets go on sale Friday.
