Country star Tim Mcgraw is upset by his record label bosses' decision to release a new Greatest Hits album without his permission.
The singer has apologised to fans for Curb Records' decision to release a third greatest hits package of his material.
In a statement MCGraw revealed he's "saddened and disappointed" by the album release on 7 October (08).
He says, "I've only had one studio album since my last hits package. It has to be just as confusing to the fans as it is to me. I had no involvement in the creation or presentation of this record.
"Sure I love the songs and I don't want to take anything away from all the creative people who were a part of making those records. But the whole concept is an embarrassment to me as an artist.
"In the spirit of an election year, I would simply say to my fans 'I'm Tim MCGraw and I don't approve their message'."
According to Billboard.com, MCGraw's two prior hits packages have sold a collected eight million copies in the U.S. alone.
