Tim McGraw Energized With New Start

(Radio.com) Tim McGraw is having a good day. At least it appears that way, from how energized and engaged he is during a recent interview with Radio.com, talking about his brand-new album, Two Lanes of Freedom.

"I feel there's way more ahead of me than behind me," Tim says. "It's just sort of an open road. I'm really only 35 percent into what I'm here to do musically."

Released on Tuesday (Feb. 5), Two Lanes of Freedom is Tim's first record on his new label Big Machine Records (he had been signed to Curb Records since the mid-1990s). It's his 12th studio record overall.

Switching to a new label, he says, doesn't necessarily affect the recording process–writing and finding songs, cutting them in a studio–it's more about support after the fact. "You don't have to worry about what's going to happen with the music, how it's going to be presented."

But he does admit that this new energy from the business side may have an indirect impact on the recording itself. "I'm sure in a certain way that backwashes into the making of the record, and the feeling of the record. And we certainly felt like we had a weight off our shoulders when we went in there to record it." more on this story
