Mike Huckabee sued for using song Eye of the Tiger at rally for Kim Davis

Mike Huckabee was there to welcome Kim Davis when she was released from a Kentucky jail

Survivor guitarist Frankie Sullivan is making good on his threat to sue Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee for using his song Eye of the Tiger at a rally for Kim Davis.

Sullivan, who co-wrote the song, has filed a lawsuit in federal court in Illinois accusing Huckabee of violating the copyright of the song by allowing it to play when he escorted Davis onto a stage at the rally.

The lawsuit, which seeks unspecified damages, states that as the author of more than a dozen books, Huckabee ‘is sophisticated and knowledgeable concerning the copyright laws.’

The rally took place in September upon the Rowan County Clerk’s release from a Kentucky jail where she spent six days behind bars for defying a judge’s order that she allow marriage licenses to be issued to same-sex couples.

Eye of the Tiger roared through loud speakers outside Carter County Detention Center in Grayson when former Arkansas Governor Huckabee and Davis arrived arm-in-arm.

After the rally, Sullivan wrote on the band’s Facebook page: ‘NO! We did not grant Kim Davis any rights to use “My Tune -The Eye Of The Tiger.” I would not grant her the rights. I would not grant her the rights to use Charmin!’

He added: ‘See Ya really SoooooooonnnnnnN!!!!!!’
