Tim McGraw will get 2013 into gear by releasing Two Lanes of Freedom, his first album for Big Machine Records, on Feb. 5. The album includes McGraw’s new single “One of Those Nights,” which he will debut during ABC’s broadcast of the 46th Annual CMA Awards Thursday, Nov. 1.
“I always go into the studio to make the best record I can possibly make, and this one is no different. But ‘Freedom’ is a powerful word,” said McGraw. “To come into a situation where there’s some weight lifted, some refreshment going on, you can feel that in the music. I think you can feel the horses gallop on this record, and where I might go and what I might do when my engines are revving.”
McGraw served as co-producer on Two Lanes of Freedom, along with his longtime collaborator Byron Gallimore. Fans can hear a preview of “One of Those Nights” today (10/30) when McGraw appears on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.
