Carrie Underwood and Co-Writers Sued for Song Theft

Two Canadian songwriters filed a lawsuit against country superstar Carrie Underwood and her co-writers over her song “Something in the Water’  in federal court recently.  

Songwriters Ron McNeill and Georgia Lyons claim a song of theirs, also called “Something in the Water,”  bears a resemblance to her hit of the same name.  They are suing Underwood, her co-writers Chris DeStefano and Brett James, their publishing companies and Sony Music Nashville, which was Underwood’s record label at the time of the song’s release.
