Kenny Chesney and Tim McGraw Announce 2012 Brothers of the Sun Stadium Tour

Two of the biggest stars in country music, Kenny Chesney and Tim McGraw, will be touring together in 2012.

Kenny Chesney is well-established as the biggest live audience draw in country music. His summer stadium concerts are like Jimmy Buffett concerts on steroids, growing to easily sell out the largest venues in the country through the summer months. Now Tim McGraw has joined Chesney in what is being billed as the Brothers of the Sun Stadium Tour in 2012. The series will kick off in Tampa, Florida on June 2 and will finish up in Foxboro, Massachusetts on August 25.

Along the way, Chesney and McGraw will hit most of the major outdoor music venues in the country. To have arguably the two biggest stars in country music paired together for a summer concert series is noteworthy in itself, but the fact that McGraw is joining Chesney's now-iconic concert series is even more difficult to grasp. Chesney definitely doesn't need the additional fan support that McGraw offers, but the venture appears to be much more about two old friends having fun than whether or not they can make a little more money from their fans.

"It’s two artists who’ve known each other for 20 years, who’ve been friends for 20 years, at the top of our game to be able to go out and do this together," McGraw said. "To get two artists to agree on anything is pretty spectacular. But to agree to go out together, do a tour together and just have a great time together and play music together is a pretty unique and remarkable thing. And I think that can only happen with guys who are as good of friends as we are."

McGraw and Chesney have known each other since living in the same apartment building outside Nashville when both were struggling new artists. Eventually, McGraw broke through and he brought Chesney on the road with him as the two opened for George Strait. Now both artists have risen to the top of country music, while also crossing over into the main stream because of their laid-back personas and massive followings. With most of the concert dates and venues already announced, tickets are going to be hot commodities in 2012.
