Tim McGraw Issuing First-Ever Live Recordings

For the first time in his career, Tim McGraw will be releasing live tracks from one of his tours. The five tracks recorded during his Two Lanes of Freedom tour will be available on his official website. All songs were previously available in studio versions on his latest album, Two Lanes of Freedom. The first track, “Southern Girl,” will be available Friday (May 24). The additional songs will be released on June 7 and 21 and July 12 and 26. “The sound and energy from a live show gives an entirely new perspective to any song,” McGraw said. “I’m always looking for ways to give the fans something extra. If you’re at the show, it’s a cool memory to add to your playlist. And if you couldn’t get a ticket to the show that night, you can still hear some of what happened and maybe feel like you were there. It’s a first for me to release live tracks this way, and that’s exciting.” His tour continues this week with stops in St. Louis, Chicago, Cincinnati and Darien Lakes, N.Y.
