Two Lanes of Freedom
(Deluxe Edition, 2PC)
Double vinyl LP pressing. 2013 release from the Country music icon. Two Lanes of Freedom is set to prove once again that he remains dedicated to delivering music that is innovative, heartfelt and authentic. On the album, the sense of nostalgia comes through on the hard-driving single 'One of Those Nights.' the reverie of that song, though, is countered by the humor and joy of 'Southern Girl' or the feel-good hangover of 'Mexicana.' McGraw reaches some especially emotional depth in his performances on such songs as 'Number 37405,' the lament of a singer-turned-convict. Most powerful of all might be 'Book of John,' a wistful account of a family going through the journal left behind by it's late patriarch. The album closes with 'Highway Don't Care,' a breezy yet complex track that features Taylor Swift and Keith Urban on guitar.
