Tim McGraw, and a host of other country stars, are headed for the Garden State this summer.

Summers at the Jersey Shore are typically reserved for GTL (gym, tan, laundry). But with more than 20 country music concerts throughout the state, it looks like summer 2016 will be all about a new kind of GTL: guitars, tailgates and line dancing.

Tim McGraw will headline Wildwood’s first beach concert at the Celebrate America festival on July 4, which will also feature country stars Hunter Hayes and Maggie Rose.

Jimmy Buffett, Florida Georgia Line and Zac Brown Band are also set to headline beach concerts in Atlantic City in August and September.
