Everyone knows Nashville is music city. Our country music scene is world
famous and the expansion into other genres has been dramatic. We not only
have the artists but the industry to back them up.
Nashville is home to dozens of music labels that regularly sing artists
to contract deals.
While that part of Nashville continues to thrive, we are adding new industry
every day. As the “It City”
we have experienced the addition of many new businesses, everything from
our favorite neighborhood stores to headquarters for multi-national corporations
are landing here.
Nashville is very familiar with the notion of a recording contract and
we have all seen the saga’s play out in the press. The lengthy legal
battles of recording artists like Kesha and Drake, show us the harsh reality
of how binding a contract can be. Recording contacts are some of the toughest,
leaving artist bound to a label or producer for years.
Most of us will not experience a recording contract first-hand but many
will be presented with a more
standard employment contract. Employment contracts, while not typically
as binding, can still place an employee in a tough spot. It is important
to have these contracts review by independent counsel before signing.
You may not be stuck working for your employer for years, but you may
be left with little to show after years of dedicated employment.
If you have an employment contract that needs to be reviewed, you should
contact one of the of
attorneys at Humble Law today.
