It’s a true superstar pairing as Kenny Chesney and Tim McGraw hit the road for the first time in a decade for their 2012 Brothers of the Sun Tour. Featuring special guests Grace Potter & The Nocturnals and Jake Owen, the 19-date summer stadium tour is set to kick off next June 2nd, but as Kenny says, he’d love it if the tour were starting right now. Take a listen HERE. If hearing that doesn’t get you excited for the 2012 Brothers of the Sun Tour, I don’t know what will!!
Chesney gives some insight on how the Brothers of the Sun Tour came about. He reveals, “I’m really excited to say that I’m goin’ out on the road next summer with my buddy Tim McGraw. It’s really still hard for me to believe ’cause Tim and I have been friends a long time, we’ve made a lot of music together, made a lot of memories together. He’s one of my best friends in the business and outside the business, and when this first came about, it was just, you know, an idea to think about what we’re gonna do next year and how we could make it special for me and for everyone, especially the fans. And this started out, I think Tim and I were just gonna do one show together, and then, you know, we talked about it and decided, why not? You know? Let’s go and give the fans the best possible show that we can give them.”
One thing for sure, Chesney is really excited about the upcoming Brothers of The Sun Tour, “The idea of he and I up there on stage together, makin’ music, and givin’ the fans the best possible show they can get next summer, that’s the thing I’m most excited about because the people that are gonna win the most is the fans. And they’re gonna get a lot of music thrown at them, and they’re going to have, hopefully have, an evening that they’re gonna remember for a long time. I’m already…I wish it was happening right now, you know? I’m so ready for it.”
