Tim McGraw will kick off his Two Lanes of Freedom Tour this Thursday, May 2, in Birmingham, Alabama. He’s relying on new music to set this tour apart from past outings. “I think we’re playing more new songs than we ever have on this tour,” he said. “We’ve always tried to introduce new material, but this time we’ve got six or seven new ones off the new album.”

Tim also teased there will be some cool musical transitions between music. But more than anything, the focus will be on the music instead of production or ‘cool tricks.’­ “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 said.  “There’s gonna be some great stuff going on, on the stage. For me the first thing is how it sounds, and it’s just gonna sound smokin’. I mean, the band just really sounds great.”

Brantley Gilbert and Love and Theft will be joining Tim on the Two Lanes of Freedom Tour. “Brantley’s doing great,” Tim said. “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 & 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.”

The Two Lanes of Freedom Tour will visit 30 cities through July. Tim’s latest single, “Highway Don’t Care,” featuring Taylor Swift and Keith Urban, is at radio now.
