Savor history! That’s what Louisville fans did on April 11. The KFC Yum! Center turned from basketball arena to concert venue to host Fleetwood Mac. Lindsey Buckingham and Mick Fleetwood soared to expected heights. Unfortunately, Christine McVie chooses not to leave retirement for the road. Stevie Nicks brought down the house when she dedicated “Landslide” to the U of L men’s and women’s basketball teams for their first and second place championship rankings. If you don’t already have a collection, a two-disk winner is “The Very Best of Fleetwood Mac.”

Tim McGraw, “Two Lanes of Freedom” (2013) was made the old way. Musicians stayed in the studio ten to twelve hours a day for two weeks. A new label with new ideas grabbed some old flashback sounds and caught up with Taylor Swift for some vocals and Keith Urban to highlight one of many hits to come from this album. It’s good to see/hear the Tim McGraw who seemed to have gotten lost for a while.
