Major Media Outlets Praise McGraw’s Debut On  
Big Machine Records
TN–Feb. 13, 2013–Country superstar Tim McGraw landed his 14th No. one
album debut on the Billboard Country Albums chart this week with the
release of TWO LANES OF FREEDOM.  The album also claims the top spot on
the All-Genre Digital Albums chart amid a coast-to-coast release week
that took the PLATINUM selling entertainer from The Super Bowl to the
GRAMMY Awards.  Music critics are praising the 11 song disc for its
impressive balance of iconic McGraw material with broader new sounds
influenced by everything from celtic to piano pop.
“If this is an indication of McGraw’s next phase, then let Freedom ring again and again.”  USA Today
“…a major new start for McGraw…” Los Angeles Times
has sold over 40 million albums, earned 32 No. 1 singles, won three
Grammys and collected over 30 other music awards. Two Lanes of Freedom
is about to up the numbers in all of those categories.” Edmonton Journal
is a master of balancing lighter fare and introspection, seamlessly
shape-shifting from life of the party to brooding philosopher, emoting
the trickier, riskier byways of pain and regret as skillfully as he
approaches the more common themes of romance and freewheeling good
times.” Billboard
is a savvy artist and picker of songs, wisely choosing those that will
keep him commercially viable but continuing to stretch his legs.” Boston Globe
Up next for McGraw is an all-star concert special, ACM PRESENTS: TIM McGRAW’S SUPERSTAR SUMMER NIGHT, taping
April 8 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas and broadcast at a
later date on the CBS Television Network.  He will be handpicking the
hottest music of summer and calling on his friends to help kick off the
2013 touring season.   He’ll launch his own TWO LANES OF FREEDOM 2013
TOUR, presented by Pennzoil, in Birmingham, AL on May 2 and continue on
to 30 cities through July.  The U.S. trek will also feature emerging
artists Brantley Gilbert and Love and Theft.
