Lee Ann Womack and her record label, Universal Music Group Nashville, have parted ways.
Womack first signed to Decca Records Nashville in 1996 then made the move to UMG’s MCA Nashville imprint.
“[I’m] so appreciative to the wonderful MCA staff for giving me their all from my first days at Decca, through ‘I Hope You Dance,’ the awards for ‘I May Hate Myself In The Morning’ and There’s More Where That Came From,” the singer said in a statement obtained by CountryWeekly.com. “I am excited to see what comes next for so many people I think of as my friends, and am eager to see what life after ‘leaving home’ is like.”
Womack was expected to release a new album this year, but it appears fans will have to wait a bit longer to get their hands on new music from the Texas native.
In the meantime, fans can catch Womack in the new Zaxby’s commercials.
