Taylor Hicks sues over Apple iTunes Music Store releases

“‘American Idol’ winner Taylor Hicks has sued a Tennessee music producer to halt the online distribution of songs the grey-haired crooner recorded five years before copping the reality TV crown. In a lawsuit filed yesterday in U.S. District Court in Alabama, Hicks charges that William Smith recently sold three of his songs via Apple’s iTunes music store,” The Smoking Gun reports.

Lawsuit? Why didn’t Hicks just send the Soul Patrol after him?


  1. Oh well, at least he’s suing the producer and not Apple. I mean actually doing the right thing to get his music taken off the store, instead of going after Apple for ***BILLIONS*** in damages.

  2. The addition of one word to the title would have made it clear enough that I could have saved myself from reading about the embarrassment that is American idol.

    That word is producer.
