American singer-songwriter, photographer, record producer, actor, and entrepreneur, Kenny Rogers is said to be suing bosses of his label. He is much known for singing country, and at this moment he is taking his record label executives to court over an alleged breach of contract.
He has indeed filed a federal lawsuit in the U.S. District Court of Tennessee against Capitol Records bosses; he has claimed that he had been underpaid for royalties which are due to him for music sold as digital downloads and ringtones.
Capitol Records took on Rogers as an artist in 1977, according to The Tennessean. In the lawsuit, Rogers’ lawyers claim label bosses kept royalties due to Rogers for digital songs by classifying them as songs that are,
“sold” rather than “licensed”.
The singer also alleges he was underpaid in excess of $400,000 (£250,000), due to accounting errors.
