NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Tim McGraw says his record label, Curb Records, released a greatest hits package of his songs against his wishes and without his involvement.
McGraw said in a statement Tuesday that he's been working on a new studio album for more than a year, playing some of the new songs on tour and wanted to release the CD this fall.
But he said Curb Records instead released the greatest hits collection -- his third overall and second since just 2006 -- last week to extend his recording contract term.
Curb Records said in response that several conversations were held with McGraw's representatives about all aspects of the project.
