Tim McGraw Excited About Turning 50, New Album and Taylor Swift

(Radio.com) Tim McGraw is not afraid of turning 50. Having just reached age 46 on May 1, the country star told CBS This Morning's Gayle King in an interview today (May 17) that he's even "looking forward" to that impending milestone.

"I hear that it's the best time of your life," he says. "So I'm getting prepared for my 50s." And based on Tim's accomplishments of late, he has no reason to be anxious about that half-century mark. He's in arguably the best physical shape of his life; he's got three wonderful daughters with wife Faith Hill; and he's just put out a strong new album, Two Lanes of Freedom, for a brand-new label.

It's his 12th studio album in a recording career that has stayed strong and grown stronger since his debut 20 years ago. Does he feel that Two Lanes is actually his best album to date? "I think so," he says, adding, "I think I always feel that way. I look at every album as a progression from the last album."

His collaboration on the song "Highway Don't Care" with Taylor Swift and Keith Urban was something different, too. "I wanted to sing with Taylor for a while," he says. "The toughest part was finding a song that wasn't really a 'love song.' And when I heard this song, with that part in it, it was perfect." more on this story
