Tim McGraw has been tearing up the road for nearly 20 years as one of country music's top live acts, and he's not giving up his place atop the touring world anytime soon. Though he's seen several opening acts like Jason Aldean and Luke Bryan go on to headline big tours of their own, Tim insists he's not intimidated by this new crop of superstars.
He tells AccessAtlanta.com, "I’ve been doing it long enough that I don’t try to keep up with anyone. I’m trying to keep up with myself."
Tim adds, "I don’t go out and see a lot of shows, so I don’t have a lot to compare myself to."
When putting together his current Two Lanes of Freedom tour, Tim worked hard to build a show he'd want to hear and see as a fan. The resulting show relies more on the music than on fancy bells and whistles.
"I don’t have sparklers going off," Tim explains. "That’s not me, but whoever likes it more power to you -- but visually I think it’s a cool-looking show with some cool video content."
Tim has Brantley Gilbert and Love and Theft out on the road with him this summer. Go to TimMcGraw.com for tour dates.
