Jennifer Nettles Seeks Something More Than Universal Music Group

Jennifer Nettles

Just days after the release of her new single “Sugar,” Jennifer Nettles has parted ways with Universal Music Group. “I want to thank Universal Nashville for 11 wonderful years,” the singer said in an exclusive statement to Billboard. “This change is the first step on a path I’ve been wanting to take. I am so excited about the next part of my journey and I invite my fans to stay tuned.”

Nettles was first signed to Universal’s Mercury Records as a member of Sugarland and released her solo album That Girl on the label in 2013. While “Sugar,” was thought to be the lead single from her sophomore solo effort, the future is now unclear for Nettles. However, she doesn’t seem too concerned.

And, according to Billboard:

While Nettles has departed Universal Music Group as a solo entity, a rep from the company’s Nashville office confirmed to Billboard that Mercury still holds the rights to any future Sugarland projects.

    So proud of you and your multi genre talent. You will be successful at anything you decide. Nice to be free of label control. After your label killed Incredible Machine after one single, their hostage like approach of the Sugarland name is abhorring. You have the true courage of your convictions; an example for all of us.
