Kellie Pickler has parted ways with Sony Music Nashville. Her manager Larry Fitzgerald said in a statement to ABC News Radio, “Kellie’s contract with Sony came to an end and they mutually decided not to renew.”

Kellie’s latest album, 100 Proof, was the last album on her contract with Sony.  It was released earlier this year and features a more traditional country sound.  Kellie told ABC News Radio when it was released in January, “I’m still always gonna make music regardless of whether or not I have a record deal.” 

Kellie continues touring in support of 100 Proof with a show Milwaukee Friday.
