The Black Crowes Sued Gretchen Wilson Over Song Rip-Off


The rockers have just filed in a lawsuit claiming that the country star has rip-off parts of their hit song "Jealous Again" and uses it on her track "Work Hard, Play Harder".

Copyright-infringement has become the major issues for lots of musicians lately including for rock band The Black Crowes who have just filed a lawsuit against a singer who they claimed have stolen parts of their song. The musician that is being sued by the rocker is country star Gretchen Wilson.

The rockers claimed that Gretchen has taken some parts of their old hit track "Jealous Again" and use it on her new song "Work Hard, Play Harder" without a permission. Not only suing the singer on their lawsuit, the band also addressed their allegation to the country singer's label Sony BMG, a publishing company J Money Music and TNT, that uses the track to advertise their TV series "Saving Grace".

Confirming their allegation, the Crowes manager Peter Angelus said in a statement, "We find the musical verses of Wilson's song to be such an obvious example of copyright infringement that I expect all parties to reach a relatively quick resolution to avoid litigation." Meanwhile, Gretchen or her representative still refuses to shout any comments regarding the lawsuit.

The rocker's "Jealous Again" was the band's hit song that was being included on their debut album "Shake Your Money Maker", that was dropped in January 1990. On the other hand the troubled song penned by Gretchen, reportedly will be one of the tracks included on her upcoming LP, that is being set to be outed just before the end of the year.
