The rumors had been swirling, particularly when RaeLynn’s bio was taken off of Big Machine Label group’s website. The Voice season 2 alum has parted ways with the label.
The singer released a five-song EP, Me, in early 2015 and two singles on the Valory Music Co. imprint. However the full-length album she has been working on won’t be released. Raelynn confirmed with The Boot that she has parted ways with Valory. No hard feelings, she tells the country music news website. She continues to work on her next record.
“They did everything in their power,” RaeLynn said of BMLG. “’God Made Girls’ was such a success for me. I’m so blessed to have over half a million downloads on that song. I was the highest-charting new female in 2014, and I couldn’t have done that without Big Machine and their support.”
According to The Boot, “God Made Girls” peaked in the Top 10 on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart (No. 7) and the Top 20 on the Country Airplay chart (No. 16), and was certified gold. Her follow-up single, “For a Boy,” unfortunately, didn’t match her initial success. The song peaked at No. 32 on Hot Country Songs and at No. 58 on Country Airplay.
The recently married singer hasn’t completely severed ties with Big Machine. She remains a songwriter with the publishing arm of the company. Also, she has some concerts coming up. The singer is “so excited about this new journey.”
“We’re recording this record, and I’m just so passionate about it. It’s like my kid; it’s like my child, this record,” RaeLynn said. “I’m going to nurture it and make sure it’s the most perfect thing before I put it out. That’s why I’ve been so picky about it.”
