McGraw broadcasts video filming live today
Tuesday, November 27, 2012
– Tim McGraw is inviting fans to watch the making of his music video as it happens for his brand new single, One Of Those Nights
today starting at 4:30 p.m. Eastern.
McGraw will offer a live feed with the help of Ustream from the filming of the music video at its location in Nashville. McGraw will be able to interact with fans and chat with them periodically throughout the shoot while giving them the chance to see how the video process works.
"It's crazy that 25 years into my career, this single and this album represent a lot of firsts for me," said McGraw. "There's a renewed feeling of creativity and excitement, and I want the fans to be part of it every step of the way. The technology that's out there today provides some cool new ways to connect with music fans, so it'll be fun to give everyone a real look at what happens on the video shoot. I hope we can do more stuff like this as things get even busier with 'Two Lanes of Freedom'."
The song is McGraw's second single from his upcoming Big Machine Records debut "'Two Lanes of Freedom." The album will be released Feb. 5, 2013.

CD reviews for Tim McGraw
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. »»»
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. »»»
Two Lanes of Freedom
Tim McGraw's debut on Big Machine, "Two Lanes Of Freedom" is his first record since the announcement that he gave up alcohol five years ago and the first since his acrimonious, litigious split from the only label he had ever known, Curb. The new CD literally and symbolically represents a fresh start. If only the material better reflected his new take on life. What is presented here is about as boiler plate as contemporary country gets. The album is a safe play and takes almost no chances. »»»
