Tim McGraw - 'Two Lanes of Freedom' (Feb. 5)
Take the name literally on this one. McGraw’s first album for Big Machine should feature the country superstar letting loose after finally breaking free from his former label contract after suing to get off the label. Taylor Swift and Keith Urban join the breezy McGraw on “Highway Don’t Care.” In addition to current hit, “ One of Those Nights,” the album also includes “Mexicoma,” which McGraw performed during this summer’s stadium tour with Kenny Chesney.
