Here’s more from FYI on FMBA, blogs.southtownstar.com/fmba.
“This 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,” McGraw said about “Two Lanes of Freedom,” which was released on Feb. 5.
“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.”
The Big Machine Records release follows McGraw’s record-shattering career, selling more than 40 million albums and dominating the charts with 32 No. 1 singles.
Since the release of his debut album in 1993, he has won three Grammys, 14 Academy of Country Music Awards, 12 Country Music Association Awards, and 10 American Music Awards.
