Alan Jackson Leaves Sony After 22 Years


Alan Jackson


The country music singer earned a Grammy in 2002 when his song 'Where Were You (When the World Stopped Turning)' was released under the label.

Country icon Alan Jackson has parted ways with record label bosses at Sony Music Nashville after more than two decades on their roster. The singer joined the label in 1989 and went on to release a total of 14 studio albums on the Arista imprint, including hit singles "It Must Be Love", "Small Town Southern Man", "It's Five O'Clock Somewhere with Jimmy Buffett", and "Where Were You (When the World Stopped Turning)", which earned him a Grammy in 2002.

But the 52 year old has ended his partnership with Sony after delivering his "final recordings" to label heads, according to a company representative. In a statement, Sony bosses thanked Jackson for "their long association and many hit records achieved as a result of that association", and insisted the parting was "amicable".

No further details were available as WENN went to press.
