"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," says Kenny. "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," adds Tim. "We'll be having as much fun on stage as the fans will be having in the audience."
The trek will hit 19 stadiums across the country, kicking off June 2 in Tampa, Fla. Special guests will include Jake Owen and Kenny's 'You and Tequila' duet partner, Grace Potter, along with her band, Grace Potter & the Nocturnals.
The Brothers of the Sun tour will mark the first time in a decade that Kenny and Tim have toured together. You can expect record numbers to turn out. Kenny's 2011 Goin' Coastal tour was the biggest country tour this year, while Tim took the same bragging rights in 2010 for his Southern Voice tour.
