Curb Records, Inc. v. McGraw
Court of Appeals of Tennessee
2012 WL 4377817 (Sept. 25, 2012)
Tim McGraw (defendant) contracted to provide his recording artist services exclusively for Curb Records, Inc. (Curb) (plaintiff). The contract contained an initial term and then several option periods, during which McGraw was required to produce albums for Curb. Curb rejected McGraw’s album submission for the fifth option period, claiming that the songs were recorded prior to the period. Curb brought suit against McGraw, seeking, among other things, to enjoin McGraw from providing his recording services to anyone other than Curb until he provided Curb with two additional albums that complied with the parties’ contract. The parties did not dispute that McGraw provided unique and extraordinary recording artist services. The trial court denied Curb’s request for an injunction. Curb appealed.
