Kenny Chesney: “I’m Really Excited” About ‘Brothers of the Sun’ Tour

Although his “Brothers of the Sun” tour is more than six months away, Kenny Chesney would kick off the summer trek tomorrow if he could. The fact that he’s bringing longtime friend Tim McGraw on the road with him makes the summer ahead a very special one for Kenny.

“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,” Kenny says. “I can’t tell you guys how excited I am already for the 2012 ‘Brothers of the Sun’ tour.”

While Kenny looks ahead to next summer, he also recently took time to reflect back on how the idea of the “Brothers of the Sun” tour came together.

“[Tim is] one of my best friends in the business and outside the business, and when this first came about, it was just 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 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.”

As excited as Kenny and Tim are to hit the road together, they know that the ultimate winners in the whole situation are the fans. For the price of admission, country music lovers will be treated to a show by two of country’s top superstars and that’s a fact that’s not lost on Kenny.

“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, an evening that they’re gonna remember for a long time. I’m already…I wish it was happening right now. I’m so ready for it.”

The tour will also feature Grace Potter & The Nocturnals and Jake Owen. You can see a list of tour dates for the “Brothers of the Sun” tour HERE.
