Top 10 News Stories of 2011: Kenny Chesney and Tim McGraw Announce 2012 Tour
Fans went crazy when Kenny Chesney announced that he’d be taking Tim McGraw on the road with him for a stadium tour in 2012 — and rightfully so. The iconic country pair, who are also good friends, will reunite on the road after 10 years for the 2012 Brothers of the Sun Tour, starting June 2.
“Our friendship was forged on the road, so it’s going to be a blast heading out with Kenny again,” McGraw said in a press release. Added Chesney, “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. He’s one of my closest friends in music and in life, and I know this tour is going to be something special.”
The country crooners saw record-breaking ticket sales when just under half of the scheduled dates went on sale in early December 2011, to the tune of a quarter of a million tickets sold. Now, many of the giant stadium concerts are completely sold out.
