McGraw Launches First-Ever “Fanticipation” Program With
Tumblr In Each Market 
Debut Big Machine Records Album “Two Lanes Of Freedom” Set For Release On Feb 5 
Nashville, TN- Jan. 15, 2013-  Country Music Icon Tim McGraw announced today that his TWO LANES OF FREEDOM 2013 TOUR, presented by Pennzoil, will crank up this
summer 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.  
has partnered with Tumblr to create the “Fanticipation” program which
will allow fans, for the first time ever, to announce through Tumblr
when tickets will be available in their own hometown.   Beginning in
early February, McGraw will call a fan in each market who is selected to
participate in “Fanticipation” and personally tip them off, so they can
share the information with their friends and other McGraw fans first.

more than two decades on the road, McGraw’s ability to entertain and
command a crowd continues to be a defining characteristic of both his
artistry and superstar status.   Earlier this year the Tampa Tribune described McGraw’s live show as “effortless” while the Atlanta Journal Constitution remarked “he’s so casually cool onstage” and OC Weekly said “It’s a bold claim, but McGraw could and should be poised to reign as king of country music…”  
album marks a new sense of excitement and artistic freedom for me, and I
really wanted to extend that same feeling to the tour and create a cool
vibe for the fans,” explains McGraw.  “Let’s leave anything that might
be weighing us down out in the parking lot and spend a few hours
together feeling alive and free.  We’ve started working up new songs
from the album, and there’s some really cool stuff we’ll be able to pull
out this summer. My band is just kick-ass…there’s nothing these guys
can’t play!  We’ll be counting the days til Birmingham!”

“Angel Eyes” last year from their self-titled album. 
Tim McGraw and Pennzoil, cars represent freedom, which is why both have
