Ed Sheeran Wants Copyright Lawsuit for Tim McGraw and Faith Hill’s “The Rest of Our Life” Tossed Out


Earlier this year, songwriters  Ed Sheeran, Amy Wadge, Johnny McDaid and Steve Mac  were named in a copyright lawsuit alongside Faith Hill and Tim McGraw for the duet, “The Rest of Our Life.” Australian songwriters Sean Carey and Beau Golden alleged that the songwriters and the singers “blatantly copied” their song “When I Found You” and that Sony employees (McGraw and Hill’s record label) knew about it.

Sheeran has finally responded to the lawsuit, filing his own documents saying “The Rest of Our Life” is an “originally and independently created musical composition.”

The Australian songwriters are seeking $5 million in damages and honestly, they have a decent case, if you listen to the songs.
