Tim McGraw And Faith Hill Sued Over 'Rest Of Our Life'


Tim McGraw and Faith Hill, along with Ed Sheeran, have been named in a new lawsuit by a pair of Australian songwriters who allege that the pair's song "The Rest of Our Life," which was co-written by Sheeran, is "blatant copying" of their own 2014 song, titled "When I Found You."

According to the Hollywood Reporter, songwriters Sean Carey and Beau Golden claim that, "the copying is, in many instances, verbatim, note-for-note copying of original elements of the Song, and is obvious to the ordinary observer."

"It very well may have been an agent of Sony Music Entertainment who provided the other defendants herein with access to the Song," the lawsuit states.

Carey and Golden are seeking injunctive relief and at least $5 million in actual damages plus profits, in addition to a running royalty and an award of attorney's fees and costs.
