– The music video for Feel Like a Rock Star,
Kenny Chesney's hit duet with Tim McGraw, premieres on Friday.
The video will begin posting online early tomorrow morning on various outlets. Access Hollywood is then scheduled to show 30 seconds during tomorrow night's broadcast and post the full video online at 7:30 p.m. eastern. Great American Country is also scheduled to broadcast the video during tomorrow's Top 20 Country Countdown at 8 p.m. eastern.
Directed by longtime Chesney collaborator Shaun Silva, the video finds Chesney and McGraw in an all-white aircraft hangar evoking the song's premiere performance at this year's Academy of Country Music Awards. The song made a number 13 debut several days after the performance - Chesney's highest debut ever on Billboard's Country Songs chart and the highest-bowing duet between two co-lead artists in the chart's BDS-era history.
The video will begin airing on other top broadcast outlets on Monday, April 23.
Chesney and McGraw will tour together on the Brothers of the Sun Tour.

However, this album's title track expresses a much deeper perspective on life. "I must've sat on a dozen islands/Watched the sun sink into the sea." Previously, island living was the reason for life. Now, life's purpose is described as much more internal than external. Call it trading that pirate flag for a little more mindfulness. ...
Kenny Chesney's "Song for the Saints" is a step in the right direction for the popular country star. Inspired by the Hurricane Irma disaster, which hit Chesney personally as it destroyed a house he owned in the U.S. Virgin Islands, these songs are more serious and heartfelt than typical Chesney music.
Best of all is "Love for Love City," a reggae duet with Ziggy Marley incorporating steel drums into an inviting island mix. It's followed by a cover of Lord ...
