FedExField to Host Chesney-McGraw Concert

Posted Apr 3, 2012

Tickets for Kenny Chesney's "Brothers Of the Sun" tour with Tim McGraw, which stops at FedExField on Aug. 12, are on sale now.


Kenny Chesney's new single "Feel Like a Rock Star" with Tim McGraw made its debut at the Academy of Country Music Awards on Sunday, April 1. It's the first single from Chesney's upcoming release "Welcome To the Fishbowl."

Chesney will perform songs from "Welcome To the Fishbowl" at the 20-stadium "Brothers Of the Sun" tour with McGraw. The show stops at FedExField on Sunday, Aug. 12.

Tickets for the "Brothers Of the Sun" tour are on sale now! Fans can buy tickets at www.ticketmaster.com or call (301) 276-6711.

The "Brothers of the Sun" tour will be the first time in 10 years that Chesney and McGraw have traveled together.

The reunion will kick off June 2 in Tampa, Fla. and will feature stadium shows on weekend dates at venues across the country.

The "Brothers of the Sun" will also feature special guests Grace Potter & The Nocturnals and Jake Owen.

"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,” McGraw said. “We’ll be having as much fun on stage as the fans will be having in the audience.”

Chesney led the Academy of Country Music Awards with nine nominations including Entertainer of the Year, Album of the Year ("Hemingway's Whiskey") and Male Vocalist of the Year. He was also nominated for Song of the Year for "You and Tequila" with Grace Potter.

McGraw is a three-time Grammy Award winner who has had a No. 1 single in each of the last three decades – 32 in total – including the title track of his most recent album, "Southern Voice."

McGraw is also an accomplished actor, having starred in films such as the Oscar-nominated blockbuster "The Blind Side" and the critically acclaimed "Friday Night Lights."
