Black Crowes Accuse Gretchen Wilson Of Copying Song

Rockers THE BLACK CROWES are threatening to sue country star GRETCHEN WILSON, claiming she ripped off one of their songs.
The band has issued a copyright infringement against Wilson, her label SonyBMG and publishing company J Money Music, citing similarities between her new song Work Harder Play Harder and their hit track Jealous Again.
Turner Network Television have also been dragged into the affair, because Wilson's song features in a commercial for its show Saving Grace.
Black Crowes manager Pete Angelus says, "We find the musical verses of Wilson's song to be such an obvious example of copyright infringement that I expect all parties to reach a relatively quick resolution to avoid litigation."
Jealous Again was written by Chris and Rich Robinson and appeared on the band's 1991 album Shake Your Money Maker.
