Tanya Tucker has filed a lawsuit against former Nashville entertainment attorney Joel Cherry to collect $247,000 she loaned him in 2003.
A judge in Williamson County will determine how much he owes her.
Court papers claim Joel never repaid his debt.
According to the Tennessean, Joel signed the promissory note for $247,841.48 ten years ago to help him through some financial difficulty.
A 2006 letter Joel wrote to Tanya's late father Beau broke down his financial situation in the wake of a divorce and an apparent IRS settlement.
