Listen to Tim McGraw on iHeartRadio

(Yahoo!) - If you tuned in to Ram Country on Yahoo Music’s exclusive live stream celebrating the release of Tim McGraw’s new album, Two Lanes of Freedom, on Tuesday—you know that the event was nothing short of spectacular.

Not only did McGraw treat fans to a special set performed on the deck of San Diego’s Naval landmark the USS Midway, he arrived in style via helicopter, performed both new and old favorites, and finished things off with a dazzling firework show. Not a bad way to celebrate a new chapter in his life!

McGraw himself was thrilled with the special event, and took the time to thank everyone involved, including the staff of the Midway as well as Yahoo! Music. Check out what he had to say about his amazing album launch day!
