(AUDIO) Tim McGraw Hopes To Please Enough People With His New Tour

May 5, 2013

When you have as many hit songs as Tim McGraw, one of the toughest parts of a tour can be putting together a set list and narrowing down the songs. “You’ll probably disappoint some people,” acknowledges Tim, “but you just try to find the ones that you like to play and the ones you have the most fun playing. You put those in and then try to mix that with the ones you know everybody wants to hear and then try to find the new stuff to fit it all in. Somewhere in the middle you hope that you please enough people.” For his Two Lanes of Freedom Tour, which just kicked off last week, Tim says, “We’re gonna do twenty-four songs, which is a lot of music in a two-hour period. You wanna get new stuff in,” like his current single, “Highway Don’t Care,” plus he says he has a couple album cuts that he loves that he wants to include in the show, and of course he has to play some of the hits, but with a catalog of hits as big as his, he says, “You’re not gonna get all of them.”

Tim McGraw – picking a set list :37

“That’s the toughest part about putting a show together. You can throw lights up, throw a video up, and you can throw all those things up, but after doing this for so long, to narrow it down. We’re gonna do twenty-four songs, which is a lot of music in a two-hour period. You wanna get new stuff in. You wanna get a couple album cuts that I love I wanna get in. You wanna play some of the hits. You’re not gonna get all of them. You’ll probably disappoint some people but you just try to find the ones that you like to play and the ones you have the most fun playing. You put those in and then try to mix that with the ones you know everybody wants to hear and then try to find the new stuff to fit it all in. Somewhere in the middle you hope that you please enough people.”
