Scotty McCreery Parts Ways With Record Label


Despite a voracious fan base and album sales exceeding 2.5 million copies, former American Idol winner Scotty McCreery and his record label, Mercury Nashville, have parted ways.

The news was confirmed by both UMG Nashville and McCreery, who issued a statement to Taste of Country. “I enjoyed being on Mercury Nashville / Interscope and I appreciate all the great people who worked hard on my behalf while I was there,” McCreery tells Taste of Country in a statement. “I am excited about what the future holds and the opportunities being presented to me.”

The news comes after a slew of other label-artist splits including Sara Evans and RCA, Jerrod Niemann, the Swon Brothers, the Henningsens and Josh Dorr.
