Tim McGraw Lands A New Record Deal
Singer Joins The Big Machine Label Group Roster
After winning a lawsuit last November to get free of his previous recording contract, Tim McGraw announced today at a Nashville press conference that he’s signed a new, worldwide deal with high-powered Nashville label Big Machine Records, home to Taylor Swift, Rascal Flatts and other stars.
“Many people know that I came to Nashville 23 years ago on a Greyhound bus with nothing but a guitar,” said McGraw. “And 23 years to the day, on May 9, I went back to the bus station and officially signed this deal. It was a significant way for me to mark this new beginning.
“Excited doesn’t even begin to describe how I’m feeling about working on a new album for this next chapter in my career,” he said. “Here’s to the next 20 years!”
Since leaving Curb Records last fall, McGraw released one holiday single on his own, “Christmas All Over The World,” while Curb released a McGraw album that had long been in limbo, titled “Emotional Traffic.” That album had been the basis of a countersuit filed against McGraw by Curb, which claimed the singer recorded it earlier than was contractually specified.
Next up for McGraw is the Brothers of the Sun tour with Kenny Chesney, which kicks off in June and runs through August.
They have all made their MILLIONS. That is why they support BHo. They don't WANT anymore in their club! BHO is all about stopping anyone else from making MILLIONS. That is what the "spreading the wealth" was about.

If your are the type of person who needs to know ones political stance prior to buying tickets to thier movie, concert or your neighbor hood florist for that matter........Your a real PIN HEAD.
Please get a life.
Seriously people this is America. People have a right to choose who they want to support and who wants to buy tickets. If people choose not to buy records and tickets based on someone's personal right to choose who they support, then that is up to them. some may agree and some may not, but ultimately it is a personal thing.
I love Tim and Faith, alsways have always will, I have attended their concerts, and when I can, I will continue. To me, I don't support Obama, but I still like great music. It is their business what they do with their money, just as my vote and my support is up to me.
