EXCLUSIVE DOCUMENTS: Brad Paisley Suing Sony Music For $10 Million — Read The Lawsuit

"The primary reason that Paisley is commencing this action is because Sony continuously has refused Paisley access to a variety of information and applied incorrect royalty rates, prices, and reductions, pursuant to the Recording Agreement, resulting in Sony's significantly underpaying Paisley," the documents read.

"For many years, Paisely and his advisors have sought to resolve this matter amicably with Sony, but to no avail."

First suing in 2002 to get access to his royalty information, a New York judge partially shot him down stating that he signed a contract with Sony which only allowed him to challenge royalty payments since 2006.

The legal battle was at a stand-still for months until Paisley filed the amended lawsuit in March, claiming Sony owes him upwards of $10 million, given his wide record sales and successful tours.

Paisley, 41, husband of actress Kimberly Williams-Paisley, is suing for breach of contract.
