After success last year, Tim McGraw will be back at Lake Minnetonka next week fundraising for local veterans' charities.

The country superstar helped raise $250,000 at a charity concert last summer, shortly after he and wife Faith Hill played the Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul.

The "Liberty on the Lake" concert is the work of Lake Minnetonka resident Peter Taunton, the CEO of Snap Fitness, whose Palmer Pointe house McGraw played at last summer and will play again next Saturday, July 28.

McGraw will perform before around 400 private guests at Taunton's home, however anybody can go and watch for free – provided they have access to a boat.

That's because the stage on Taunton's lakefront property allows McGraw to face either direction, looking out to the lake or to the hundreds in the garden, so those with a boat can travel over to Taunton's property and watch McGraw in action from the lake.

You can find it on the southwest shore of the lake.

This year, the event is raising money for 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.

The event gets underway at 11:30 a.m. and finishes at 3:30 p.m.

Check out how popular the event was with boaters last year.
