Nashville,
TN- June 3, 2013- GRAMMY winning superstar Tim McGraw is at the top of
the both the Billboard and Mediabase charts again this week for the
smash hit, “Highway Don’t Care” with Taylor Swift, featuring Keith Urban
on guitar.  In addition, the track has sold over one million downloads
and set a record for single week audience impressions with 41.3 million
during the May 27-June 2 Nielsen BDS tracking week, logging the biggest
weekly audience sum since the Country Airplay chart switched to
audience-based rankings in January 2005.  The three superstars joined
together for this monumental musical event which marks McGraw’s 34th
career No. one song and second consecutive No. one from his Big Machine
Records debut TWO LANES OF FREEDOM.
 
“I
thought this song had the potential to be really special the very first
time I heard the demo,” said McGraw.  “And then standing on the stage
with Taylor and Keith performing it live for the first time on the ACMs,
I knew that it was really the kind of magical collaboration that only
comes along every few years.  The energy that night was undeniable…I
know the three of us could feel it.  Radio continues to be supportive
and excited about the music we’re giving them, and I’m so thankful for
my friends there and for all the fans who have really taken this thing
to the next level.  It just keeps getting bigger and bigger in our show
every night.”
 
McGraw’s
latest No. one achievement comes on the heels of another sold-out
weekend of his TWO LANES OF FREEDOM 2013 Tour, powered by Pennzoil, with
capacity shows in Indianapolis, IN; Cleveland, OH  and Washington,
D.C.  Previous stops on the 30 city trek have critics chiming in to
praise McGraw’s two hour action-packed set.
 
“characteristically high-octane…” Billboard
 
“electrifying stage presence” Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
 
“The
man sweats star power and has an effortless, sexy swagger that make it
hard to believe he’s a mere mortal, yet he performs with humility,
smiling at the response from the crowd as if he’s genuinely surprised
they like him.” Tampa Tribune
 
“McGraw successfully set the party tone for the summer…” Buffalo News
 
McGraw’s
TWO LANES OF FREEDOM debuted at No. one on the Billboard Country Albums
chart marking his 14th career No. one debut.  Since the release of his
debut album in 1993, McGraw has sold over 40 million albums, won three
GRAMMY’s, 15 ACM Awards, 12 CMA Awards and 10 AMA’s, while
simultaneously maintaining a parallel career as a successful actor in
such films as the Oscar nominated The Blind Side, Country Strong, and
Friday Night Lights—as well as hosting Saturday Night Live, a rare honor
for a singer in any genre.  Nielsen-BDS recently certified McGraw as
the most-played Country artist of the past 20 years (1992-2012) with
more than 10 million spins detected and Mediabase recognized him as the
most-played Country artist in the history of their tracking
