Review: Kenny Chesney, Tim McGraw start a massive party at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa


For the third time in the last few years, Kenny Chesney brought his A-game to Raymond James Stadium on Saturday in Tampa. And this time, he brought a friend: Fellow country megastar Tim McGraw.

Sean Daly was among the 48,443 in attendance for the kickoff to Chesney and McGraw's Brothers of the Sun Tour, and he writes:

Chesney worked his sweat-soaked tail off for almost two hours, patrolling the plus-shaped ramps off the main stage like he was running for mayor. He sells a life of No Shoes, No Shirt, No Problem. He celebrated his wild ways with the besotted Out Last Night and When the Sun Goes Down....

The 45-year-old McGraw packed his white tee and snug jeans like a much younger cowboy, squeezing opening song Felt Good on My Lips in between the appreciative screams of his female fans. Faith Hill's hubby played a 100-minute set, which included For a Little While, Down on the Farm, No. 1 smash Real Good Man and Sammy Kershaw's Better Than I Used to Be.
