  • Label sues Tim McGraw for breach of contract 


    NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Tim McGraw and Curb Records could be headed to court over an unreleased album.
    The independent record label filed a breach-of-contract lawsuit last week against McGraw, claiming the country superstar failed to provide a fifth and final album that met contractual obligations under their deal by an April deadline.
    McGraw turned in an album last fall called “Emotional Traffic,” and a No. 1 single from those sessions has been released. But the label contends the singer did not record the songs on the album during a contractually stipulated window, thus breaking the deal.

     “For this concert, we present the many facets, or seasons, of love: from favorite old folk songs to uplifting spirituals to the heartbeat of Broadway,” Badarak said.

  • Statues dedication moved to Council Chambers
