THE TENNESSEAN is reporting that Country artist TIM McGRAW has been released from CURB RECORDS. A judge in NASHVILLE ruled this afternoon (11/30) in favor of McGRAW that he is free to record outside his contract with CURB.
Attorney WILLIAM RAMSEY said all that remains is the damages portion of the dispute, with that hat trial being set for JULY. McGRAW is reported as saying he is “just very happy.’’
In the on going legal battle, the label claims that McGRAW breached his 1997 contract by providing an album too soon. The album "Emotional Traffic" has not been released. RAMSEY argued that TIM should be free to record while the lawsuit continues, while CURB RECORDS’ lawyer JAY BOWEN argued the label lost two years of recordings from McGRAW.
Meanwhile back at CURB RECORDS, they have responded with a brand new single being released today (11/30), to Country radio, called "Better Than I Used To Be," which will be the first new music from McGRAW in 11 months.
