A federal court has declined to hear Curb Records' lawsuit against Tim McGraw and Big Machine Records, another setback in the label's legal fight with the country star.

Curb Records Sues Tim McGraw in Federal Court

A U.S. District Court judge in Nashville, Tenn., signed an order administratively closing the case until a decision over copyright of music McGraw recorded is made in a lawsuit filed in Tennessee state court.

Curb initially filed a lawsuit over copyright and breach of contract issues and tried to bar McGraw from signing with Big Machine Records.

McGraw has countersued, and a judge allowed him to make new music with a different label for the first time in his more than 20 years as a recording artist.

He released that album, "Two Lanes of Freedom," earlier this year.
