Country diva Trisha Yearwood left her label of 16 years for an indie label. She switches from MCA Nashville to Big Machine Records to record her upcoming album.
Big Machine, which is the same label that wraps Taylor Swift, Jimmy Wayne and Jack Ingram, has Scott Borchetta as the president and CEO. Scott indeed has been working with Yearwood throughout her stay in MCA. He will assist her again in the upcoming album which is slated for early 2008 release and will be accompanied during the process by Yearwood's long time producer, Garth Fundis.
There has been no published reason regarding this leave but speculation said that MCA has abandoned Yearwood's career in recent years. "Today's a celebration and a projection of what Trisha and Big Machine are going to do," Scott said. "Trisha Yearwood is a terrific artistic brand. ... Today, she moves to the front of the class."
However, MCA still holds the right to Yearwood's previous records and will release a greatest hits album this year.
