Country music recording star Jennifer Nettles has left Mercury Records and UMG as a solo artist after one album. The news may come as a shock as she had just released the single "Sugar" to country radio a couple of weeks back with a forthcoming add date for the single. Obviously the single is being pulled from promotion.
Jennifer released "That Girl" in 2014 to great fanfare with a #1 chart debut, hundreds of thousands of copies sold and critical acclaim. The powerful artist is also 1/2 of Sugarland, who will REMAIN Mercury/Nashville artists. Her Sugarland partner, Kristian Bush, records for Streamsound Records as a solo artist.
No word was leaked as to why the splitting from Mercury. We'll let you know more as it develops. Until then, what do you think of this news?
Great article Matt!
