This is the title track from Tim McGraw’s new album that comes out on Tuesday courtesy of Billboard. After listening to the song a couple times I do think it could be a single. It will be interesting to see what Tim did with this record. It’s his first since having issues at his previous label.
The song seems to have a double meaning for Tim. He’s on his own road to freedom like the couple in the song.
Two Lanes of Freedom – Tim McGraw
Listen to Two Lanes of Freedom
The song has the classic Tim McGraw sound. It’s a little country, a little rock and roll and a little pop. That’s been an important element in Tim’s success. He knows how to find good hooks in songs and this one certainly has a great hook.
It’s a catchy song that you sing along with by the end. That’s why I think it would do well as a single.
The story is about two people. It seems like a young couple that is looking for their freedom. They’re finding that they can have it and it’s exciting to them. They want to make their own way in life and head out and make their own way.
That’s the freedom we all look for in life.
While the story is about a young couple finding freedom it also seems to have more meaning to Tim. Everybody knows about his struggles to leave his former record label. I’m sure he now feels like he has the freedom to have more control over his career.
If that means more music like this then country fans have a lot to look forward to from Tim McGraw.
