Record Label Drops Jessica Simpson Ending her Country Career?

April 7, 2009

(ChattahBox) — Like a sad country song, Jessica Simpson has been kicked to the curb, as her record label has dropped her like a sack of potatoes. As of right now, the perhaps former country singer’s name appears nowhere among the artists listed on the sites of either Columbia Nashville or Sony Music Nashville. Although Simpson’s country debut, Do You Know, debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard country charts, it fizzled thereafter and only sold 172,876 copies as of February.

Simpson’s live performances were also a disappointment often bordering on trainwreck. She struggled as the opening act for Rascal Flatts this year, often flubbing lines or forgetting lyrics altogether. Simpson also skipped Sunday’s Academy of Country Music Awards, even though she announced the nominees earlier this year.

After rumors began today that she was dropped, her rep trying to do some damage control confirmed she is no longer with Sony Nashville label, telling Us, “She was on loan to Sony Nashville for her country album,” and is back with Epic artist where she has previously released pop albums.

On loan is a nice way of say her country label didn’t want anything more to do with her and returned her ‘to sender’ .
