Just weeks after parting ways with UMG NASHVILLE (NET NEWS 8/4), JENNIFER NETTLES has signed with BIG MACHINE RECORDS with plans to release a new single to Country radio in OCTOBER and a solo album in early 2016. "I am so thrilled and honored to join the BIG MACHINE family," said NETTLES. "They are truly the best in the business. I loved working with [BIG MACHINE LABEL GROUP President/CEO] SCOTT [BORCHETTA] years ago, in the beginning of my career, and have been waiting for the right opportunity to get to work with him again! I'm so happy that day has arrived, and I look forward to our exciting new adventures to come."
BORCHETTA explained, "This is somewhat full-circle, as I was at UMG NASHVILLE as SVP/Promotion when then-President LUKE LEWIS present a disc of 'this new band we've signed -- pick a single.' I was floored with SUGARLAND then, and I'm floored with all things JENNIFER now. She's simply one of the best female voices to ever grace Country music, and I can't wait for the world to hear her new music. Get ready."
