Country Music Icon Tim McGraw announced today that his TWO LANES OF FREEDOM 2013 TOUR, presented by Pennzoil, will crank up this summer in Birmingham, AL on May 2 and continue on to 30 cities through July. The U.S. trek, will also feature emerging artists Brantley Gilbert and Love and Theft.
McGraw has partnered with Tumblr to create the “Fanticipation” program which will allow fans, for the first time ever, to announce through Tumblr when tickets will be available in their own hometown. Beginning in early February, McGraw will call a fan in each market who is selected to participate in “Fanticipation” and personally tip them off, so they can share the information with their friends and other McGraw fans first.

After more than two decades on the road, McGraw’s ability to entertain and command a crowd continues to be a defining characteristic of both his artistry and superstar status. Earlier this year the Tampa Tribune described McGraw’s live show as “effortless” while the Atlanta Journal Constitution remarked “he’s so casually cool onstage” and OC Weekly said “It’s a bold claim, but McGraw could and should be poised to reign as king of country music…”
”This album marks a new sense of excitement and artistic freedom for me, and I really wanted to extend that same feeling to the tour and create a cool vibe for the fans,” explains McGraw. “Let’s leave anything that might be weighing us down out in the parking lot and spend a few hours together feeling alive and free. We’ve started working up new songs from the album, and there’s some really cool stuff we’ll be able to pull out this summer. My band is just kick-ass…there’s nothing these guys can’t play! We’ll be counting the days til Birmingham!”
