TIM McGRAW'S NEW ALBUM
NASHVILLE (AP) -- Tim McGraw's longtime producer explains why his "Emotional Traffic" album sounds country but has shades of other styles. Byron Gallimore says he and McGraw continued a trend with "Emotional Traffic" they started with earlier albums. They include not only including country material, but there are songs with streaks of R-and-B, pop and rock. The producer says here's the key: McGraw uses his voice to pull the songs back into country territory. "Emotional Traffic" has the number-one hit "Felt Good on My Lips."
