In 2007, songwriter James Martinez filed a $20 million dollar lawsuit against McGraw, Reid and Wiseman. The suit alleges that the singer lifted “Everywhere” from a tape containing Martinez' original track "Anytime, Anywhere Amanda." Martinez provided the tape to the same songwriters who wrote the song "Everywhere" for McGraw's 1997 album of the same name. The suit alleges that McGraw and other defendants internationally released and distributed the “Everywhere” album containing their infringing copies of a song substantially similar to the Martinez's song. McGraw's attorneys stated that they are confident the case will be dismissed altogether, and described the allegations as being "totally without merit."
