The temperatures are starting to heat up, which means production is well under way for Kenny Chesney and Tim McGraw’s Brothers of the Sun Tour, one of the most anticipated shows of the summer. Kenny recruited his fans into the mix, asking his fan club to submit videos and photos of themselves having fun. Thousands of entries were received and are now being edited into a montage that will play on the video screens when Kenny performs “Out Last Night” during the tour.
The Brothers of the Sun will kick off June 2 in Tampa with Kenny and Tim welcoming Grace Potter and The Nocturnals and Jake Owen as special guests. Kenny will release his latest album, not yet titled, on June 19 as the follow up to the critically-acclaimed Hemingway’s Whiskey.
