Curb still Claiming Tim is a Curb Artist

The complete press release from CURB today on Tim McGraw COURT RULES IN FAVOR OF CURB RECORDS’ MOTION RE: TIM MCGRAW Nashville, Tenn. (June 28, 2012) The Court in Nashville has ruled in favor of Curb Records in a chapter of its lawsuit against Tim McGraw -- in which, among other things, Curb Records contends that Tim is still under contract because he has not provided his Fifth Option Period Album. The Court granted Curb Records’ request to postpone the trial until it has the opportunity to take additional evidence surrounding Big Machine Records’ signing of Tim and when the 20 recordings Big Machine says it will release were made. In addition, the Court of Appeals will soon hear the appeal of the Nashville trial judge’s earlier ruling in which he found that, while it appeared Tim may have breached his Recording Agreement and had failed to deliver the Fifth Option Period Album, he would not issue an injunction pending the trial to prevent Tim from signing with a new record company until he had fulfilled his commitments to Curb Records. The Court found that even though he did not enjoin Tim from signing with another company, Tim may be liable for his failure to perform. The Court of Appeals will determine whether an injunction should have been issued. While Big Machine Records has announced that it had signed Tim McGraw and would be releasing an album apparently from those “20 new recordings,” Curb Records believes, and has asked the Court to find, that Tim remains under contract and the “20 recordings” belong to Curb, as they were recorded during the term of Curb’s Recording Agreement. Until now, Curb Records has not publicly commented on the lawsuit with Tim McGraw and the misinformation that has been reported regarding the lawsuit. It is important to set the record straight and make clear why there is a lawsuit with Tim. Tim has signed three different contracts with Curb Records, electing to re-sign with Curb Records two additional times. In Tim’s third and current contract, he agreed to record six option albums. As a gesture, Curb agreed to reduce his option albums in exchange for Tim honoring the contract regarding the remaining five albums. In his contract, Tim agreed to record the albums during specified periods of time. These provisions, standard in the record industry, are designed for obvious reasons. They give record labels adequate time to market and promote an album and its singles and they prevent an artist from recording multiple albums at once, ensuring that the music is always fresh. Tim also agreed that he and Curb Records, together, would agree on the songs which appear on those albums. Ignoring these contract provisions, Tim commenced recording virtually all the songs which are embodied on the Emotional Traffic project even before the 2009 release of his previous album (Southern Voice) and without consulting Curb Records as to the contents of this record. When asked to provide an album which met the terms of the contract, Tim refused. Only then did Curb Records ask the Court to resolve this matter, as it believes that Tim has not fulfilled his contract. Unlike what has been reported, and as is obvious from the Court’s rulings, Tim has not won the lawsuit. Curb Records believes that: Tim McGraw is still an artist on Curb Records’ label; That Big Machine had no right to sign Tim McGraw until his contract with Curb Records is over; That the “new music” advertised by Tim McGraw and Big Machine, or that Big Machine may choose to release before the Court ruling, is still owned by Curb Records; When the Court does rule, it will agree that Tim McGraw has breached his Recording Agreement with Curb Records. Finally, Tim has stated publicly and to the Court that Emotional Traffic is the best album he has ever recorded. His latest single from that album, “Right Back Atcha Babe,” has recently been released by Curb Records.

New Flavor Friday from Blue Bell..

From KHOU-TV Houston:  BRENHAM, TX -- Blue Bell Ice Cream is teasing a new flavor on its social media feeds. The Texas-based ice cream company has been slowly reintroducing its flavors to many of the markets it had withdrawn from after last year's fatal Listeria outbreak forced them to completely shut down production for a time. During the shutdown, the company worked with outside experts to control and eliminate potential sources of Listeria inside the Texas and Oklahoma facilities where the outbreak originated. While production of the iconic brand has resumed, not all of the company's flavors that were being produced prior to the plant closings are available. Blue Bell has been taking a measured reintroduction, and now has product available in most states and markets where they were prior to the closings. In this week's social media tease, the company says the new flavor will have fans "dancing in the grocery store aisles." Our newest flavor is a combination o…

They call her..The Bare Naked Bandit..29 yr Old Lee Grace Doherty

ARRESTED now in Colorado...but what a story and week for 2 brothers and their stripper sister!

Text messages and tweets by three fugitive siblings who shot at a police officer and robbed a bank reveal a dangerous mindset and a firm bond between the siblings, "We've certainly seen their mindset when... They shot at a law enforcement officer outside of Tampa Bay, Fla., and when they fired inside that bank in Valdosta, Ga. But these additional texts and tweets have given us additional insight," FBI Special Agent Stephen Emmett told "Good Morning America" today. " We are concerned and feel that they are going to continue and cause problems to say the least for law enforcement." Ryan Dougherty, 21; his sister Lee Grace E. Dougherty, 29; and half-brother Dylan Dougherty Stanley, 26, have been on the lam since Aug. 2 when they shot at a police officer attempting to pull their white Subaru Impreza over for speeding. A few hours later, they robbed a bank in Georg…
