Kenny Chesney/Tim McGraw
We’re not even a major Chesney fan and yet he blew us away with his enthusiasm, unflagging energy, and spirit when we saw him at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey last summer. Add his good buddy McGraw to the mix (and their first tour together in more than a decade) and you’ve got the definitive fun evening by the 2012 boys of summer and the season’s best country combo plan. Cowboy hats not optional.
