Lee Ann Womack has announced her departure from the Universal Music Group (UMG) label after 14 years with the MCA imprint. The country songstress is grateful for her time spent with the label, but looking forward to what changes lie ahead:
"[I'm] so appreciative to the wonderful MCA staff for giving me their all from my first days at Decca, through 'I Hope You Dance,' the awards for 'I May Hate Myself in the Morning' and There's More Where That Came From," said Womack to Country Weekly.
"I am excited to see what comes next for so many people I think of as my friends, and am eager to see what life after 'leaving home' is like."
Womack is currently working on a new album, The Way That I'm Living, which represents a departure from her previous work:
"I didn't write anything on it," Lee Ann told The Boot. "It's funny, I was feeling weird about that and my husband (producer Frank Liddell) said, 'If outside songs are good enough for Willie Nelson, they should be good enough for you!' I had to agree with that."
