Tim and Kenny are dazzling audiences all over the country with their high-energy stadium shows, which begin with sets by Jake Owen and Grace Potter and the Nocturnals. Tim has used the opportunity to preview new music from an upcoming album -- his first project for his new label home, Big Machine Records.
"We're doing two new [songs] in the show, 'Mexicoma' and 'Truck Yeah,'" Tim tells The Boot. "They're going over great. For any artist, the most fun you have in a night sometimes is playing new stuff, especially new stuff that already sounds like a hit. And these two songs, when we play them the reaction is like they've been out ten years already. They're a lot of fun."
"Truck Yeah" has only been out a few weeks and is already a smash hit. It made its debut at No. 22 on the singles chart, becoming the country icon's highest solo singles chart debut of his 20-plus year career. Tim's highest overall chart debut just happens to be his previous radio release, the Kenny Chesney duet, "Feel Like a Rock Star," which the two perform together every night on tour. The uptempo tune is featured on Kenny's chart-topping Welcome to the Fishbowl album.
