Tim McGraw Dishes on What to Expect on Two Lanes of Freedom Tour
Tim McGraw has been touring for so long throughout his illustrious country music career, it’s like second nature to him. However, like any artist, he wants to give his all on every single tour, and the ‘Highway Don’t Care’ hitmaker dishes on what to expect with this summer’s run.
McGraw tells GAC that his Two Lanes of Freedom Tour will put lots of his new material in the spotlight, explaining, “I think we’re playing more new songs than we ever have on this tour. We’ve always tried to introduce new material, but this time we’ve got six or seven new ones off the new album.”
Although some country stars rely on big productions or jaw-dropping effects, the iconic performer is focusing on the most important aspect of a concert: the music. “I’ve never been a big gag person in a show anyway, so we don’t have a ton of those big cool things that happen all the time,” he says.
“There’s gonna be some great stuff going on, on the stage,” the superstar adds. “For me the first thing is how it sounds, and it’s just gonna sound smokin’. I mean, the band just really sounds great.”
In addition to McGraw’s hits, fans will also get a chance to see Brantley Gilbert and Love and Theft, and he couldn’t be happier with how his opening acts are performing. “Brantley’s doing great,” he states. “He’s making great music. His tracks, his songs — just so much energy and I think it’s gonna be a great combination of our crowds. And then Love and Theft — I’ve worked with before and I’m a big fan of those guys. They really make great music. It’s gonna be a well-rounded show.”
Whether McGraw plays his older hits such as ‘Where the Green Grass Grows’ or newer songs like ‘Truck Yeah,’ you can be sure fans will be pleased with every aspect of the show, and it will be one of those nights that you just don’t forget.
