“With every tour we put together we focus on making it new and exciting for the fans,” said McGraw. “All the production bells and whistles are nice and we’ll certainly have all those, but this tour is all about smacking you in the face with a huge sound and great songs and giving you an unforgettable night of music. Making the set list is always the toughest part for me because we want to give the fans the hits, and we also want to keep it fresh and play some new songs that they’ve never heard live before. I’m as excited about tonight as I was when I headlined my very first tour…it’s the best feeling in the world.”
