The Associated Press (via The Tennessean) reports Tim McGrawand his attorney, William Ramsey, are seeking permission from a Nashville court to record his next album with another label, while he’s in an ongoing lawsuit with his current label, Curb Records.
Tim’s attorney has argued that Curb Records is trying to put his career on hold with the lawsuit. Tim and wife Faith Hill were in chancery court in Nashville on Wednesday to hear arguments. Curb, which sued Tim, claims that Tim breached his 1997 contract by providing an album too soon. The album, Emotional Traffic, has not been released.
Tim’s attorney argued that he should be free to record while the lawsuit continues. A trial is scheduled for July.
Curb Records lawyer Jay Bowen argued the label lost two years of recordings that should have been on his fifth album with Curb.
