A management group is suing Grammy-nominated bluegrass band The Grascals for $120,000 following a contract dispute.

In a complaint filed in Davidson County Chancery Court last week, Entertainment Evolution claims The Grascals breached an “oral Artist Management Agreement” from January 2010.

According to the lawsuit, the agreement required the band to pay Entertainment Evolution 15 percent from performances, the sale of merchandise and other entertainment income in exchange for management services.

The Grascals were named the International Bluegrass Music Association Entertainers of the Year in 2006 and 2007. They released two records under Rounder Records before forming their own label, BluGrascal Records in June 2011.

Attempts to reach The Grascals for comment were unsuccessful.
