The rumors proved to be true. Kenny Chesney announced this morning that he’ll team up with Tim McGraw for several shows next year, pairing together two of the biggest men in country music.

“Tim and I have been great friends since we first toured together, and I can’t wait to get back on the road with him,” Chesney said. “He’s one of my closest friends in music and in life, and I know this tour is going to be something special.”

“Our friendship was forged on the road, so it’s going to be a blast heading out with Kenny again,” said McGraw. “We’ll be having as much fun on stage as the fans will be having in the audience.”

‘Brothers of the Sun’ will be the first time in 10 years that Chesney and McGraw have hit the road together. The reunion will kick off June 2 in Tampa, FL and will feature stadium shows on weekend dates at venues across the country. ‘Brothers of the Sun’ will also feature special guests Grace Potter & The Nocturnals and Jake Owen.

    Please come to Austin. I’m 14 years old, I love both of y’all, nut my dad will only take me to local concerts. Y’all are going to Dallas and Houston, why not Austin? It’s the live music capital of the world.

  • Kimberlie Fowler

    Great Concert!! If you have chance you must catch this show. Saw it last night in Atlanta. Special guest Zac Brown came out and rocked it with Kenny! =)

    • Corina

      so jealous you had Zac Brown….I hope the same happens in Anaheim! did you get there @ 430??

  • Marcie_burton

    The Atlanta concert was the biggest flop I have ever witnessed in my 20 years of attending concerts. The sound person has hopefully been fired–never to work again. Jake Owens was the only plus and Grace Potter was awful. Talented? Her band is! After Tim’s sound was awful, we left and we have never left a concert. Our friends said Kenny’s sound was the same. Biggest waste of 600$ ever!!!

  • Jen5966

    Does anyone know why the show is starting at 4:30?  When does Kenny/Tim actually take the stage?  Can we go eat/drink and skip the Grace chick?  Feedback would be helpful – going to the show in Nashville in 1.5 weeks…

    • Josh Martin

      4:30 is when Jake Owen plays. Then Grace at 6 or so. Then Tim at 7 or so. Then Kenny at 8:45 or 9.

      • Corina

        was that pretty accurate as far as the line up? I really want to see Jake Owen but wasnt sure I needed to get there @ 430 to see him…. I’m going Saturday!

  • Wealthagent

    Why not Lambeau field?

    • Kelyt622

      Yes there is a pre-show put on by 101.1 WNOE and you have to get free tickets for it.. They aren’t for sale.  It starts at 12:30 at Champion Square.  It features Craig Campbell, Greg Bates and Joanna Smith.
