In a new interview with Entertainment Weekly, Kellie Pickler opens up about her recent split from her record label, Sony Nashville, and why she chose to walk away. She says recording her latest album “100 Proof,” “was hell.” Kellie reveals, “We couldn’t agree on songs. The thing is – my life is a country song. I don’t need to be manufactured, and I don’t need anyone to tell me what to say or what to sing.” She also cites shifts within her former label home as the culprit behind the project’s commercial backfire. “The only consistency was inconsistency,” Pickler said. “When my album came out, I didn’t even have a song out on the radio. Nobody does that.” Kellie is currently on the road promoting “100 Proof,” with dates scheduled through the end of the year.
