Kellie Pickler, in a new interview with Entertainment Weekly, says her split from Sony Music Nashville was owed to the label's refusal to get fully behind her latest LP, 100 Proof.
"Well, it wasn't promoted. When my album came out, I didn't even have a song out on the radio. Nobody does that. [The label was] spread thin. When I was making my record, the CEO left. He retired," Pickler noted of the turmoil at Sony.
"They brought in Gary [Overton]. My A&R left. They brought in somebody else. I went through four heads of promotion when my record was coming out. The only consistency was inconsistency," she added.
100 Proof sold 74,000 copies, while her first album, Small Town Girl, sold over 800,000. Pickler's self-titled sophomore disc, moved 400,000 units.
