The latest McGraw release is also home to his current hit single, Better Than I Used To Be, which is currently #22 and on the rise on the Billboard Country Singles chart.His previous #1 single, Felt Good On My Lips, also included on the new package was certified digital gold just days prior to Emotional Traffic hitting the streets.
McGraw's longtime producer, Byron Gallimore spoke recently to Associated Press entertainment writer Chris Talbott about the new release, noting: "We're certainly happy with it and feel like it's one of our best. We've got a great batch of songs on here, and I'm just excited that it's getting out there…I feel very strongly about this record."
