McGraw plans to release his own music, Curb to release "Emotional Traffic"

Saturday, December 3, 2011 – Curb Records may finally be releasing Tim McGraw's "Emotional Traffic" CD, and now McGraw plans to release his own music as well.

With one court battle against McGraw lost and another one upcoming, Curb Records decided to release the disputed "Emotional Traffic" from the singer on Jan. 17, 2012, The Boot reported.

The label, which released a second single from the CD, Better Than I Used to Be, earlier this week, has been in a dispute with McGraw over his contract. McGraw won the right in court to sign with another label. The two sides will go at it again in July whether Curb held up the release of the disc or if McGraw owes the label more music.

In a statement on his web site, McGraw said fans can expect more music from him very soon.

"I fought very hard for the release of 'Emotional Traffic,' it's an album full of music of which I am very proud. It's extremely unfortunate that it wasn't released earlier this year in conjunction with the Emotional Traffic tour but all I want to do now is focus on the positive and look to the future. I'm really excited about the new music I'm recording. Next week I'm putting out a holiday song I've just recorded called Christmas All Over The World. After the first of the year, I'll have a brand new single, which I can hardly wait to share with everyone. I am so appreciative of the support I've received over the years, and I'm looking forward to this next chapter of my career."

McGraw had a number one hit with the first single, Felt Good on My Lips. He announced he would tour with Kenny Chesney this coming summer, heading stadiums.

CD reviews for Tim McGraw

CD review - Here on Earth Tim McGraw's collection, "Here on Earth," finds the country star sounding peaceful and down to Earth. He's more meditative than overly active, throughout. It's very much an adult album in that McGraw is speaking from the perspective of maturity, rather than pretending he's still a young man. If he's got any barbecue statins on his white t-shirt, he's not letting on here. McGraw burns through five mellow tracks before he gets to anything with a discernable beat. ...
CD review - Damn Country Music Tim McGraw said of his 14th studio album, "Damn Country Music," "It's is all about passion, (taking him back to 1989) "when I came to Nashville to chase my dreams." Country music has richly rewarded him over the past two decades, and he honors the genre's tradition here. The album gets off to a very traditional start with Celtic folk. The flute and skillful acoustic picking on the opener "Here Tonight" bring a Mark Knopfler tune immediately to mind. ...
CD review - Sundown Heaven Town The banjo comes first out of the speakers, the opening strains of "Overrated," the lead-off song on Tim McGraw's latest. But with a "1-2-3-4" count, the mood changes and goes for a more modern country approach. McGraw does about the same on the follow-up "City Lights" with Michael Landau's steely, but rocking lead guitar taking over near the conclusion as it does later hard on "Sick of Me" where the protagonist contemplates a need to turn his life around. ...
