Kellie Pickler Splits from Record Label


It looks like Kellie Pickler may have parted ways with her record label, Black River Entertainment. The singer previously appeared on Black River’s Facebook and Twitter headers, but has been removed as of today, as pointed out by eagled-eye fan Jeremy Chua on Twitter.

Additionally, a Black River press release, about the signing of Jacob Davis, from earlier this week  lists the label’s artists, with no mention of Pickler. The press release says the following, “Black River Entertainment, home to country music entertainers Craig Morgan, Kelsea Ballerini, Jacob Davis, John King, comedy group Bobby Bones and The Raging Idiots and Ronnie Milsap.”

Pickler hasn’t released an album since 2013’s The Woman I Am, which received tepid response despite critical acclaim. The album’s three singles, “Someone Somewhere Tonight,” “Little Bit Gypsy” and “Closer to Nowhere” barely cracked the Top 60 on the Billboard Country Airplay charts.


UPDATED 6/17 – 7:30pm: Music Row is now reporting that Pickler has indeed split from Black River Entertainment. 

“She will always be a part of our Black River family. We wish her all the best and are looking forward to watching her continued success in all of her endeavors,” Black River said in a statement.
