ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) _ Court action against two country singing stars has been postponed until July 18, lawyers said Tuesday.

Tim McGraw and Kenny Chesney were arrested Saturday night after performing at the George Strait Country Music Festival near Buffalo. Erie County Sheriff's deputies said Chesney rode away on a deputy's horse and McGraw tussled with police who tried to round up the horse.

McGraw, 33, husband of country star Faith Hill, was charged with a felony count of second-degree assault, obstructing governmental administration, menacing and resisting arrest. He was released after posting $2,500 bail. Chesney, 32, was charged with disorderly conduct and released on $100 bail.

Tom Eoannou, the lawyer for McGraw, said the court postponement will give both sides time to investigate the incident. Eoannou said he is confident the charges will be dropped ``with no hard feelings on either side.''

Erie County District Attorney Frank J. Clark could not be reached for comment late Tuesday.

McGraw was named top male vocalist at the Academy of Country Music Awards in May. Chesney's hits include ``How Forever Feels.''
