Lawsuit Against Tim McGraw Claims Hit “Everywhere” Was Stolen

Tim McGraw is currently dealing with a lawsuit filed by Texan James Martinez who claims that the tune from his original song “Anytime, Anywhere Amanda” was stolen and incorporated into McGraw’s smash hit “Everywhere”. Martinez further alleges that because some of McGraw’s songs use similar titles to his songs, that is also stealing.

The copyright infringement lawsuit was filed last year in Texas, for a sum of $20 million, but has been dragged out and is finally seeing the light of a courtroom… but in Nashville instead, where McGraw lives. McGraw’s attorneys say Martinez’s claims are “totally without merit.”

More to come on this exciting battle of the redneck rockers!
