Tim McGraw & Friends Due On Curb Records

Notwithstanding Tim McGraw's decision to part ways with Curb Records, the label has plans to release a compilation, Tim McGraw & Friends. The 11-song comp features duets recorded during his time at Curb.

Those included are Lionel Richie ("Sail On"), Tracy Lawrence ("Find Out Who Your Friends Are") and Gwyneth Paltrow ("Me and Tennessee"). The project also features duets with Kenny Rogers, Jerry Lee Lewis, Randy Travis, Tony Bennett, Ray Benson, Jo Dee Messina and Faith Hill.

The set, available only at WalMart, is due January 22, two weeks before the release of McGraw's latest, Two Lanes to Freedom, his first LP with new label, Big Machine Records.

McGraw and Curb have yet to settle some of their legal issues, and the release of the comp just before his latest release probably doesn't have Tim smiling.
