Prepare yourself for muscle shirts and sculpted cowboy hats: Kenny Chesney and Tim McGraw are coming to Houston. Together.

Fans may be surprised that the announcement comes now, a full five months after the release of an initial 19-stadium Brothers of the Sun Tour roster. Though Dallas made the initial cut, Houston was noticeably absent. 

"We had an open weekend, and we just confirmed — voila — another show," tour spokesperson Kate Des Enfants McMahon wrote in an email.

Now, Chesney and McGraw will perform together in a concert at Reliant Stadium on August 5. 

 Chesney and McGraw will pack Reliant Stadium on August 5. 

 Though it has been 10 years since the two last toured together, Chesney and McGraw recently collaborated on "Feel Like a Rock Star," the first single from Chesney's upcoming album, Welcome to the Fishbowl. ​The song debuted at No. 13 on the Billboard Country Songs chart after an April 1 performance at the Academy of Country Music Awards.
