Country Music Feuds – Tim McGraw vs. Curb Records
It’s not uncommon for stars to squabble over creative differences with their record label. Tim McGraw‘s battle with Curb got especially nasty, however. It involved the release of new music — specifically McGraw’s ‘Emotional Traffic’ album — and came to a head last November when a judge ended their relationship. Curb had argued that McGraw breached his contract by turning in a new album too soon after his previous release.
The day McGraw’s court victory was announced, Curb released new music from that album. In January 2012 they released ‘Emotional Traffic’ in its entirety. Another court proceeding is expected in July to determine if the singer did indeed breach the contract, in which case he could owe Curb money. He’s signed with Big Machine Records now, and expects to release a new single of his own called ‘Truck Yeah‘ in early July.
