Tennessee court refuses to hear appeal in Tim McGraw case

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- The Tennessee Supreme Court has put an end to Curb Records' fight to keep Tim McGraw off another label -- two weeks after he released his new album with Big Machine Records.

The court refused to hear Curb's appeal of a lower court's ruling that McGraw was free to record with whomever he wished while his legal fight with his longtime label continued through the court system. An appeals court affirmed that ruling last year, and Curb sought the Supreme Court's help. The court signed an order last week denying the appeal.

McGraw released "Two Lanes of Freedom" on his new label on Feb. 5. It debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 all-genre albums chart, selling more than 106,000 copies. It's the first album of his career not to be released on Curb.

Too bad that Curb was greedy and above all didn't get that the public will always side with the artist. They want to hear the artist. They have NO allegiance to the company.

I've loved Tim McGraw and his music since he first appeared on the country scene, hat on or off. 
I am glad his bullies didn't win. Curb Records is just showing their sour grapes. I love Faith too. There are many artists out there that don't have the "greatest" voices (altho I like Tim's fine) but they will stay on top with good songs, touring, and valuing their fans like they do. Personality/charisma helps too, Tim's got it all!

Rapidly reaching "over the hill," status.  Out of touch with the current generation of youth.
