The Year in Review 2012: Kenny Chesney and Tim McGraw Celebrate Friendship with Brothers of the Sun Tour

The Fun StarKenny Chesney and Tim McGraw celebrated their 20-plus year friendship with the Brothers of the Sun stadium tour over the summer. The two shared the stage at the end of each show singing their new CMA Award-winning duet "Feel Like a Rock Star," among other hits. The tour took in more than $96 million to rank as Billboard's #1 country tour of 2012.

Kenny also released his new album, Welcome to the Fishbowl, scoring a big hit with the steamy song "Come Over." Tim scored a #1 country album with Emotional Traffic in February, even though he didn't promote it due to ongoing legal battles with his former label, Curb Records. His new project, Two Lanes of Freedom, is due out on his new label, Big Machine Records, early next year.

Tim also reunited with wife Faith Hill for a limited run of shows at the Venetian in Las Vegas starting in December. Kenny will hit the road again in March with his No Shoes Nation tour, playing stadiums and arenas coast to coast.
