This year, due to the coronavirus crisis, graduation is going to look very different for millions of students across the country. But just because students won't be walking the stage in a cap and gown doesn't mean their academic achievements aren't a momentous milestone worth celebrating.

That's why iHeartRadio decided to do something special for these upcoming grads: The free streaming platform has announced the launch of a new podcast series featuring celebrities giving graduation speeches in honor of this year's graduates. Among the commencement speakers? The inimitable Tim McGraw. Even though we may not be graduating this year, we're certainly looking forward to hearing his words of wisdom.

iHeartRadio shared the news in a company press release, revealing that the "Commencement: Speeches for the Class of 2020" podcast would feature one of our country favorites, McGraw, among the ranks of other celebrities like John Legend, Eli Manning, Jimmy Fallon, Katie Couric, and more. iHeartRadio's own on-air personalities such as Ryan Seacrest Angie Martinez, and Bobby Bones will also be offering their own speeches in the podcast series.

Per the media statement, "These speeches will help provide wisdom, motivation, inspiration and more to the Class of 2020, as they take their next steps in life, and help to give them the graduation they deserve," so we're definitely excited to hear some uplifting commencement addresses. Debuting on May 15th, the podcasts will be available to listen to on iHeartRadio and everywhere else podcasts are heard. The speeches will also be aired on iHeartMedia broadcast radio stations across the country.
