NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- The Tennessee Supreme Court has put an end to Curb Records' fight to keep Tim McGraw off another label -- two weeks after he released his new album with Big Machine Records.

The court refused to hear Curb's appeal of a lower court's ruling that McGraw was free to record with whomever he wished while his legal fight with his longtime label continued through the court system. An appeals court affirmed that ruling last year and Curb sought the Supreme Court's help. The court signed an order last week denying the appeal.

McGraw released "Two Lanes of Freedom" on his new label on Feb. 5. It debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 all-genre albums chart, selling more than 106,000 copies. It's the first album of his career not to be released on Curb.
