Tim McGraw is a free man. A court has ruled that he is no longer bound to Curb Records.
Davidson County Chancery Court Chancellor Russell Perkins ruled in favor of Tim after a four-hour hearing today in Nashville. Tim is now free to sign with another record label and begin recording apart from Curb Records, according to The Tennessean .
A trial is scheduled for July to determine if there was a breech of Tim's contract with Curb and to determine if damages are in order.
The record label originally sued Tim, saying that he breached his 1997 contract by turning in an album too soon and sought to prevent Tim from recording or signing with another label until he fulfilled his obligation for what Curb considered a fifth album.
Tim first signed with Curb more than two decades ago.
Tim, along with wife Faith Hill and Tim's manager, Coran Capshaw, attended the hearing but declined comment.
