Jessica Simpson Not Dropped From Country Label
Contrary to erroneous online reports, Jessica Simpson has not been dropped from her country music record label.
A country music Web site claimed the pop star-turned-country singer had been dumped by Columbia Nashville and Sony Music Nashville, noting Jessica was no longer present on either label’s Web site.
However, a spokesperson for Jess’ longtime label, Epic Records, said she was only working with the country labels on a temporary basis.
“Jessica is and has always been an Epic artist. She was on loan to Sony Nashville for her country album. She continues to be on Epic’s label,” the spokesperson told Access Hollywood on Tuesday.
When contacted by Access, a rep for Columbia Nashville said they would not comment on the report.
Jessica released “Do You Know” on Columbia Nashville in 2008. The album sold 65,000 copies in its first week and reached number four on the Billboard 200 chart. “Do You Know” also reached the top spot on the Top Country Albums chart.
