Spotify Sued Over Miranda Lambert, Kenny Chesney & Willie Nelson Songs


Two lawsuits were filed against Spotify this week over songs from multiple artists.

Bluewater Music Services, a Nashville-based publisher, is claiming that Spotify did not properly license Miranda Lambert’s “Gunpowder & Lead” and “White Liar”; Willie Nelson’s “Living in the Promiseland”; Kenny Chesney’s “Better As a Memory” and “Anything But Mine”; and Guns ‘N Roses’ “Yesterdays.”

Without proper licensing, the music giant is essentially streaming the songs illegally. This isn’t the first time Spotify has run into trouble either.

In recent years, Spotify has reached two settlements; one for $30 million and another $43.4 million.

Bluewater additionally claims that Spotify has illegally posted 2,339 songs from its catalog and another  publisher/songwriter, Bob Gaudio, claims that 106 songs were posted from his catalog illegally.

Spotify  has yet to comment on the lawsuits. You can read more about it at USA Today.
