In a social media post, Miranda Lambert announced that she is leaving Sony Music Nashville after 20 years together. She did not disclose where she is headed next.
Lambert signed with Sony at the age of 19 and released her debut studio album Kerosene in 2005 via the imprint Epic Nashville. Since then, she has gone on to release seven more studio albums, notch 10 No. 1 hit radio singles and win more than 70 prestigious awards. The reigning ACM Entertainer of the Year is the most decorated artist in the history of the Academy of Country Music.
Her award-winning discography includes Palomino (2022), Wildcard (2019), The Weight of These Wings (2016), Platinum (2014), Four The Record (2011), Revolution (2009), Crazy Ex-Girlfriend (2007) and Kerosene (2005). Lambert has also released three albums with her trio, the Pistol Annies, as well as 2021’s Grammy-nominated The Marfa Tapes, a raw and intimate recording with collaborators Jack Ingram and Jon Randall.
In her social media post, Lambert writes, “Over the last 20 years together we have released albums that allowed me to share my story with the world, and we’ve reached heights I’d never even dreamed were possible. I’m so thankful for our time together and everything they made possible for me, yet I wouldn’t be true to myself if I wasn’t constantly looking for the next challenge and a new way to stretch my creativity. With that in mind, I’ve decided to say goodbye to my Sony family. I can’t wait to see what the next adventure holds.”
