Lauren Alaina Splits From Longtime Record Label

Lauren Alaina recently took to social media to reveal that she had parted ways with her longtime record label Universal Music Group Nashville.

Alaina had signed with the label as a 16-year old in 2011, after placing second on the 10th season of “American Idol.”

During her tenure with UMG Nashville, she has amassed three No. 1 hits, through her smash “Road Less Traveled” in 2017, 6x Platinum “What Ifs” with childhood friend and superstar Kane Brown in 2018 and “One Beer” with Hardy and Devin Dawson in 2020.

“I want to thank the staff at Mercury Records and UMG Nashville for everything they have done for me over the last 11 years,” Alaina wrote. “They have been my label home since the day I walked off the American Idol stage as a really young, wide-eyed, eager 16 year old kid. Now, at 27 years old, I look back and see just how much I have changed and grown into the woman I am now.”

She continued, “I have made the tough decision to spread my wings and close a very important chapter of my life. There are more exciting things happening in my career right now than ever before, and I just can’t wait to see where it all leads. Much more to share soon.”
