Carrie Underwood is being sued for copyright infringement in a lawsuit brought by two Canadian songwriters. According to Nashville's WKRN-TV, songwriters Ronald McNeill and Georgia Lyons-Savage claim that they composed the chorus, melody and lyrics to a song titled "Something in the Water" in August of 2012 and pitched it to Underwood’s team the next month. The songwriters allege that the hook of the song they wrote is identical to the one in Underwood's song "Something in the Water," which appears on her 2014 album, Greatest Hits: Decade #1. The plaintiffs are reportedly asking for a jury trial and any profits the song has generated.
· According to The Tennessean, the other defendants named in the lawsuit include Underwood's producer Mark Bright, her "Something in the Water" co-writers Chris DeStefano and Brett James, their publishing companies as well as the record label Sony Music Nashville.
