– Curb Records may finally be releasing Tim McGraw's "Emotional Traffic" CD, and now McGraw plans to release his own music as well.
With one court battle against McGraw lost and another one upcoming, Curb Records decided to release the disputed "Emotional Traffic" from the singer on Jan. 17, 2012, The Boot reported.
The label, which released a second single from the CD, Better Than I Used to Be, earlier this week, has been in a dispute with McGraw over his contract. McGraw won the right in court to sign with another label. The two sides will go at it again in July whether Curb held up the release of the disc or if McGraw owes the label more music.
In a statement on his web site, McGraw said fans can expect more music from him very soon.
"I fought very hard for the release of 'Emotional Traffic,' it's an album full of music of which I am very proud. It's extremely unfortunate that it wasn't released earlier this year in conjunction with the Emotional Traffic tour but all I want to do now is focus on the positive and look to the future. I'm really excited about the new music I'm recording. Next week I'm putting out a holiday song I've just recorded called Christmas All Over The World. After the first of the year, I'll have a brand new single, which I can hardly wait to share with everyone. I am so appreciative of the support I've received over the years, and I'm looking forward to this next chapter of my career."
McGraw had a number one hit with the first single, Felt Good on My Lips. He announced he would tour with Kenny Chesney this coming summer, heading stadiums.
