MCGRAW RELEASES THE HEART-POUNDING “HIGHWAY DON’T CARE” WITH TAYLOR
SWIFT, FEATURING KEITH URBAN ON GUITAR, AS NEW SINGLE FROM
TWO LANES OF FREEDOM
 
“Highway Don’t Care” Follows Three Week No. One Smash “One Of Those Nights”
 
Nashville,
TN — March 11, 2013 — In a triple threat collaboration, Tim McGraw is
releasing “Highway Don’t Care” with Taylor Swift, featuring Keith Urban
on guitar, as the next single from his No. one album TWO LANES OF
FREEDOM (Big Machine Records).  The track caused a feverish reaction
from country music fans, igniting early airplay and leading to a No. one
debut on the Country Digital Songs chart before its official release to
radio.  The track the Washington Post calls “sublime” is already closing in on 30 on the radio charts.
 
Written
by Brad Warren, Brett Warren, Mark Irwin and Josh Kear, the lyrics
find McGraw and Swift trading vocals that emote the undeniable pain of
being torn apart by distance.  Along with soulful guitar licks by Keith
Urban, the dream team combines forces to create a landmark musical event
being hailed by critics. 
 
“McGraw’s collaboration with Swift and Keith Urban, is a blowout of a send-off ballad…” Los Angeles Times
 
“…thrusts listeners right into the center of a head- and heart-pounding psychodrama that everyone’s endured at some point.” USA Today
 
“A take on freedom tinged with regret with McGraw’s trademark sound, tasty licks from Keith Urban, and an inspired vocal…” Billboard
 
“To
close out the record, McGraw comes full circle with another highway
song, ‘Highway Don’t Care,’…It’s one heck of an encore…” Edmonton Journal
 
“A sure future No. 1” Hitfix
 
“Delectable” US Weekly 
 
“You’ll want to hit the road and play this one over and over.” Country Weekly
 
Up next for McGraw is the two hour 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’ll be calling on his
friends to help kick off the 2013 touring season and raise money and
awareness for ACM Lifting Lives.  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.
 
McGraw
recently celebrated his 33rd career No. one with “One Of Those Nights.”
 The track, officially certified Gold by the RIAA, is at No. one again
for the third week bringing McGraw’s total weeks at No. one to 85 weeks
(Billboard and Mediabase) since his chart career began.  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, 14
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 SideCountry 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 service.
