Tim McGraw and Kenny Chesney are preparing for their tour kick-off this weekend, during which McGraw is preparing to unveil new music.

The "Brothers of the Sun Tour" will begin Saturday (6/2) in Tampa, FL, and since last check, four new stops have been added to the summertime trek. The itinerary is currently slated to wrap up with a two-night stand Aug. 24-25 in Foxboro, MA.

"I've got a new record label and a full tour schedule, and I'm coming in loaded with some brand new songs," McGraw said in a press release. "I definitely feel a sense of renewed energy. Everyone has been asking me about new music, but I've been pretty tight lipped up until now. Saturday night in Tampa, the cat will be out of the bag."

Tickets for the co-headlining run are available now via Ticketmaster.

McGraw most recently released "Emotional Traffic," his 11th studio effort, in January via Curb Records. The 12-track set, which was co-produced by Byron Gallimore and includes a collaboration with R&B artist Ne-Yo on the track "Only Human," was finally released following a lengthy lawsuit with McGraw's former label.

No word yet on when the new material will surface in album form.

The "Brothers of the Sun" trek will also feature a philanthropic portion. At each of the tour stops, McGraw and his recently launched HomeFront will award a mortgage-free home to a wounded servicemember, according to a press release.
