Tim McGraw is being sued by Curb Records for alleged copyright infringement and breach of contract. FOX News reports April 30 that Big Machine Records is also part of the lawsuit that was filed by the Tennessee record company Monday.
The record label has also filed a state court lawsuit against McGraw, but weren’t able to keep him from recording his music under an agreement with Big Machine. He released Two Lanes of Freedom in early 2013.
Curb records is demanding a return of “master recordings, compensatory and punitive damages, and an injunction against future recording or releases until its contract with McGraw has been fulfilled,” the report said.
Although the state case is pending in front of a judge, the Tennessee court gave McGraw the green light to record for a new label that was decided on an appeal that was upheld.
Tim McGraw first signed a contract with Curb Records in 1997.
