For 20 years, Tim McGraw has been providing a powerful connection with his audience. With Two Lanes of Freedom, his latest 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. In his record-shattering career, McGraw has sold more than 40 million albums and dominated the charts with 34 #1 singles. Since the release of his debut album in 1993, he has won three GRAMMY® Awards, 15 Academy of Country Music Awards, 12 Country Music Association Awards and 10 American Music Awards, while simultaneously maintaining a parallel career as a successful actor in such films as “The Blind Side,” “Country Strong,” and “Friday Night Lights,” as well as hosting “Saturday Night Live,” a rare honor for a singer in any genre. McGraw has never been afraid of breaking new ground – over the years, he has collaborated with musicians from Nelly to Tony Bennett to Def Leppard and Ne-Yo.
Proceeds from the concert special, which was shot Monday, April 8 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, went to benefit ACM Lifting Lives®, the philanthropic arm of the Academy of Country Music dedicated to improving lives through the power of music.
