Album Review: Emotional Traffic by Tim McGraw

I find the story of this album interesting. He recorded it and handed it into his record label in 2010. They held onto it not wanting to release it because they felt it was too soon after his previous record. The legal battles begin and finally the album was released as was Tim McGraw from his contract in 2012. He has since put out a new album on a new label, but I'm just now catching up with this 2012 release.

It is pure adult contemporary or what is called new country. He brought in influences from a lot of sources and uses a lot of different writers, but it all works together to create a solid effort. If you like adult contemporary or new country then this is one you'll like.

Following the Rhapsody rating method I give it 2 out of 5 stars for Not Bad.

  1. I love Target, but, if I were Target, I'd get away from the $1 bins at the front of the stores in locations such as Evansville, Ind., where I'm the only Target within a substantial radius. This strategy might be wise for the suburbs of large cities, where folks go to Target to load up on school supplies and toilet paper in bulk. But all of us who live out here in little towns where we have no Target want to feel like we're walking into Saks Fifth Avenue when we finally get ourselves to a city with one. If you smack us in the face with bargain bins, we suddenly feel like we're back home at our glum Walmart/Beryozka stores. Instead, I want to enter a Target and be lavished with the waft of percolating Starbucks lattes, the adult-contemporary stylings of these later Tim McGraw records and attractive displays of exotic, avant-garde home wares.
