A little birdy whispered in my ear today that Martina McBride has quite possibly parted ways with her record label of two years, Republic Nashville.
From my radio buddy Broadway:
I'm hearing from friends in the business that Martina McBride is no longer with Republic. Meaning, she has no record deal.
If this is true, we hope it was her decision.
Martina signed to Republic back in 2010 after being with RCA for two decades. She said at the time:
"Change isn't always easy. Sometimes it's difficult, but [with] this, all I could see was the future — my future. I have the utmost respect for them and everything that they have done. Their passion and excitement and energy are contagious. I am so excited to have that passion, energy and excitement focused on my career now. I'm over-the-top excited today to be here. I cannot wait for you guys to hear the new music. I'm fired up and feel like I have a focus and energy for making music that I haven't had in a long time. So, here's to the future."
Martina has released one album with Republic, Eleven, which was released back in October of 2011.
Martina is still listed on the Republic/Big Machine's roster of artists.
