ACM Awards: Kenny Chesney, Tim McGraw team up

Kenny Chesney and Tim McGraw teamed up Sunday at the ACM Awards in Las Vegas
Kenny Chesney, who came into Sunday's Academy of Country Music Awards show with a field-leading nine nominations, teamed up with Tim McGraw for a performance that gave fans and the television audience a preview of their summer Brothers of the Sun co-headlining stadium tour.

The two country heartthrobs sang the new single "Feel Like a Rock Star," a cigarette lighter and cellphone-ready anthem that's sure to provide a big moment each night as they work their way across the country beginning June 2 in Florida.

The tour, anticipated to be one of the biggest draws of the summer and probably of the year, reaches California with a July 14 stop at Anaheim Stadium. Year in and year out, Chesney ranks near the top of concert draws nationwide, and McGraw also is a consistently popular attraction on his own and when he has toured with wife Faith Hill.
