Country star Tim McGraw has been sued by bosses at his record label for breach of contract.

Curb Records executives claim the singer handed over master recordings for his latest offering, Emotional Traffic, too closely to the completion of 2009's Southern Voice and, as a result, the songs were not "topical and new."
