Ed Sheeran, Tim McGraw & Faith Hill Settle Copyright Lawsuit

Ed Sheeran, Tim McGraw and Faith Hill have settled a copyright lawsuit over their song “The Rest of Our Life.” Reuters reports that the settlement was disclosed in a letter filed on Thursday night with the U.S. District Court in Manhattan. The original lawsuit was filed by Australian songwriters Sean Carey and Beau Golden, who claimed “The Rest of Our Life” was a “blatant” rip-off of their song “When I Found You.” They sought more than $5 million in damages. “The Rest of Our Life” was released in 2017, two years after “When I Found You"--which was performed and co-written by Australian country star Jasmine Rae. While Rae was open to pursuing songwriting royalties, she did not want to sue the couple or Sony, and was not a plaintiff in the lawsuit. Sheeran has previously faced copyright lawsuits over his songs “Thinking Out Loud,” “Shape of You” and “Photograph.”
