For the second year in a row, Tim McGraw entertained hundreds on the shores of Lake Minnetonka.

The country star played at the Palmer Pointe home of Peter Taunton, the CEO of Snap Fitness, in front of 400 guests in a fundraising event for two military charities.

But the event was also free to anyone who had a boat, with dozens of craft pulling up to the shoreline to watch the show.

The event raised more than $200,000, which will go toward Minnesota charities Folds of Honor, which provides scholarships to the families of military men and women killed or disabled in combat, and Helping Paws, which breeds, trains and places therapy dogs with veterans suffering from PTSD.

McGraw started working with Snap Fitness last August, teaming up to create a signature line of fitness clubs designed to reflect the musician's "straightforward, independent style and hometown values."
