In a Music City shocker, Carrie Underwood announced today that she’s leaving Sony’s Arista Nashville label and has signed with Capitol Records Nashville, part of Universal Music Group Nashville. “It’s so inspiring to me as an artist to feel this excited about the future,“ Underwood said in a statement. “The incredible team at UMG shares the heart and passion I have for music as well as the drive, and their innovative spirit has shown that, together, the possibilities are endless.“ Underwood may have decided to sign with UMG because label group president Cindy Mabe worked on the team that launched the country singer’s debut album, Some Hearts. “When I decided to take my position with Capitol Records in 2007, personally one of the hardest people for me to leave behind was Carrie,“ Mabe said in a statement.
