Taylor Hicks Reaches Amicable Settlement with Producer



Taylor Hicks has settled a lawsuit he brought against producer to stop selling songs he recorded before his American Idol victory.

Good news comes from Taylor Hicks. The American Idol winner reportedly has reached an amicable settlement with William Smith, a producer he accused for wrongfully profiting from three songs he wrote and recorded before he becomes famous.

Under the deal, revealed Tuesday August 29th in documents filed in federal court in Hicks' hometown of Birmingham, it is mentioned that the singer will gain possession of the master recordings of the related songs, "The Fall," "Son of a Carpenter," and "In Your Time."

In exchange, Hicks agreed not to pursue further court action against Smith who recorded Hicks several years ago and recently placed some of the songs on the iTunes Web site for sale.

Further, Hicks' lawyer Joe Leak said no money will change hands under the agreement and hence it is described as "amicable". "We were primarily just making sure that Taylor had the rights to the music," said Leak.
