Tim McGraw preps for impending "Emotional Traffic" release
One month after he won a lawsuit against his longtime label, country superstar Tim McGraw's long-delayed "Emotional Traffic" album finally has a release date.
The 12-track set, which includes the hit single, "Felt Good On My Lips," will hit retailers Jan. 24 via Curb Records. This album, which marks McGraw's 11th studio effort with the label, was co-produced by Byron Gallimore and includes a collaboration with R&B artist Ne-Yo on the track "Only Human." The set follows 2009's "Southern Voice," and comes less than two months after McGraw won the right to part ways with Curb after a lengthy court battle.
Two undisclosed singles from the album will also be released digitally via iTunes prior to the Jan. 24 drop, according to a press release.
In the meantime, the Grammy winner is keeping up his live performance schedule, releasing dates throughout Australia alongside his wife, Faith Hill, and with Kenny Chesney across the U.S. in the summer.
Chesney and McGraw first toured together in 2002, and both are looking forward to the 2012 reunion.
"Tim and I have been great friends since we first toured together, and I can't wait to get back on the road with him," Chesney said in a press release. "He's one of my closest friends in music and in life, and I know this tour is going to be something special."
"Our friendship was forged on the road, so it's going to be a blast heading out with Kenny again," McGraw stated.
