TIM MCGRAW REVEALS MORE DETAILS ABOUT HIS UPCOMING ALBUM RELEASE TWO LANES OF FREEDOM – IN STORES FEB 5, 2013
 
Debut Big Machine Records Disc To Include Standard & An Accelerated Deluxe Version At Most Retail Accounts
 
Nashville, TN- Dec. 13, 2012- Country music icon Tim McGraw is revealing more details about his highly anticipated release TWO LANES OF FREEDOM.  His first album for Big Machine Records will be released on Feb. 5, 2013 and
is set to prove once again that on stage and on record, he remains
dedicated to delivering music that is innovative, heartfelt and
authentic.
 
“I
feel like I’ve progressed in my work, and I’ve always strived to get
better,” says McGraw. “On my last album, I was discovering some new
sounds and new things that I wanted to do, scratching the surface of the
direction I wanted to head. This album was a way to reach a little
further back, to all that I’d done throughout my career, and bring both
sides together—it’s a combination of that discovery, along with some
rediscovery.” 
 
On
TWO LANES OF FREEDOM, the sense of nostalgia comes through on the
hard-driving current single “One of Those Nights.”  The reverie of that
song, though, is countered by the humor and joy of “Southern Girl” or
the feel-good hangover of “Mexicoma.”  McGraw maintains that it was the
album’s title track that really established the tone for the entire
project.
 
“When
we cut ‘Two Lanes of Freedom,’ there was such a freshness to it,” he
says. “The track has this sort of Gaelic drive to it and really sets a
palette for the whole record because it’s so visual—it has that summery,
hazy image and I think that made the whole record open up for me.”
 
McGraw
reaches some especially emotional depth in his performances on such
songs as “Number 37405,” the lament of a singer-turned-convict.  Most
powerful of all might be “Book of John,” a wistful account of a family
going through the journal left behind by its late patriarch. The album
closes with “Highway Don’t Care,” a breezy yet complex track that
features Taylor Swift (the song is featured as number 13 on the album as
a nod to her) and Keith Urban.
