"A lot of artists can tell you how they feel," says Tim McGraw, "but when somebody can tell you how you feel, and you didn t know it or couldn t put it into words, that's the goal. What you want to do as an artist is let someone discover how they feel from your music, in a really visceral way, from the inside out," he says.

For 20 years, McGraw has been providing that kind of powerful connection with his audience. With Two Lanes of Freedom, his new album and first release for Big Machine Records, the singer is covering his broadest emotional range yet, with a set of songs that looks forward and back, gets deep and gets loose, and reveals that even the biggest stars can continue to grow with consistency and maturity.

"I feel like I've progressed in my work, and I ve gotten better," says McGraw. "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."

"When you listen to this record, there's a lot of that reflection that drives everything forward. It's almost like two magnets, the future and the past, and when they get close to each other, it pushes them away." On Two Lanes of Freedom, the sense of nostalgia comes through on such classic-sounding tracks as "Annie," "I Owe You a Dance" and the hard-driving single "One of Those Nights." The reverie of those songs, 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, with a synthesized didgeridoo and hurdy-gurdy."
