    The battle between Tim McGraw and Curb Records is getting more heated. A recap: the independent record label filed a breach-of-contract lawsuit against McGraw, claiming the country superstar failed to provide a fifth and final album under his deal within the proper time frame. He was supposed to wait to turn in the album at a designated time, so that it was not rushed nor recycled. The label says some of the songs were written such a long time again that they do not fall in line with the terms of the deal, which dictates that McGraw turn in new, relevant material, not old, filler material, to complete the deal.

    However, a statement from McGraw's spokeswoman said that the singer turned in Emotional Traffic last Fall and that Curb is holding the album "hostage" in an attempt to keep the singer "perpetually" under contract.

    Curb is asking a judge to force McGraw to turn in new material for a fifth album, to bar him from signing with another label and to nullify a 2001 agreement that eliminated a sixth record from McGraw's contract, reports The Associated Press. Jeez, what a headache for all involved.

    Team Tim McGraw or Team Curb?
