Tim McGraw and Kenny Chesney – Touring Together Again
I know, I know. They've been kind of busy, but I can't believe it's been a decade or more since Kenny Chesney and Tim McGraw have toured together. Now comes word that the two country superstars are teaming up for a 19-date slate of stadium performances next summer.
The summer event, called Brothers of the Sun Tour will have its first performance on June 2nd in Tampa and wrap up August 25 in Boston. The special guests for the tour include Grace Potter and the Nocturnals and Jake Owen.
Kenny was recently interviewed about the venture by Billboard Magazine
"When I went out with McGraw in 2001, I was just trying to find my place in the world, to learn all I could," Chesney said. "The two years I went with George Strait out on the stadium tours and the year I went out with McGraw, that changed my life. It's so wonderful that a decade later Tim and I are still doing it, still trying to record the best songs that we can and still having fun doing what we're doing. The chemistry and the friendship and how much we've both been through in our lives to get where we are today, we're going to bring all of that, every emotion, to the stage, and I think that's going to be really fun for the fans to watch."
