Curb Records filed a breach of contract lawsuit against the country crooner claiming he failed to deliver the final album due under terms of his deal with the label. McGraw has been with Curb since launching his career in 1997.

The two sides disagree over whether McGraw's album "Emotional Traffic," which he delivered to the label in October 2010, fulfills the contract.

The label maintains McGraw recorded the material in that album in 2008, so it doesn't fulfill his obligation to provide new and topical songs.

In a statement, McGraw says Curb is holding him "hostage" and is attempting to keep him "perpetually" under contract.

For its part, Curb Records wants a Tennessee court to find the Grammy-winning singer in contempt and to award it damages.
