Tim McGraw, Faith Hill Face Copyright Lawsuit Over ‘The Rest of Our Life’
Written by broebling on January 12, 2018
Tim McGraw and Faith Hill have landed themselves in a musical lawsuit for alleged copyright infringement. The singers are being sued by songwriters Sean Carey and Beau Golden. The writers claim that McGraw and Hill scored a hit with their current single, “The Rest of Our Life,” by “blatant copying” their 2014 song, “When I Found You,” featuring singer, Jasmine Rae. The lawsuit, filed in New York federal court on Wednesday, asks for an injunction and at least $5 million in damages. It alleges that “The Rest of Our Life” is “in many instances, verbatim, note-for-note copying of original elements of the Song, and is obvious to the ordinary observer.” The lawsuit also names “The Rest of Our Life” songwriters Ed Sheeran, Amy Wadge, Johnny McDaid and Steve Mac as well as Sony/ATV and WB Music.
