Wednesday All American Morning News with Eric Scott
7/18/2012 (Courtesy TheBoot.com) Good Morning! Last month, Kellie Pickler parted ways with her longtime label, Sony Music Nashville, not long after the release of her latest album, 100 Proof. The singer blames the split, at least partly, on personnel changes within her former record company.
“When my album came out, I didn’t even have a song out on the radio,” Kellie tells Entertainment Weekly. “Nobody does that. [The label was] spread thin. When I was making my record, the CEO left. He retired. They brought in Gary [Overton]. My A&R left. They brought in somebody else. I went through four heads of promotion when my record was coming out. The only consistency was inconsistency. Recording this album, the process was hell. We couldn’t agree on songs. The thing is, my life is a country song. I don’t need to be manufactured, and I don’t need anyone to tell me what to say or what to sing.”
