Just a few weeks ago, industry publication Pollstar released numbers that showed Kenny Chesney and Tim McGraw's Brothers Of The Sun tour was pulling way ahead of all the other 2012 megatours this summer--including such huge acts as Roger Waters and Coldplay.

Now, it's been revealed just how successful the tour really is: It's sold a cool one million tickets to date!

Chesney is quick to give credit where credit is due for the hottest trek of the year: "I'm so grateful to all of the fans that have made this tour such an amazing success and a nonstop party night after night," he noted. "Being out on the road with Tim has been incredible and we still have a lot of songs left to sing this summer."

Selling a mil on tour is no new ground for Chesney, who has hit that milestone an amazing nine consecutive tours in a row (the previous one being last year's Goin' Coastal tour). He's also doing just fine with his current release, Welcome To The Fishbowl--his latest single off the project, "Come Over," was just certified gold by the RIAA.

The fun (and the summer!) isn't over yet--you can still catch Kenny and Tim on tour, as there's a few dates left. The tour will wrap August 25 in Foxboro, MA.
