Lee Ann Womack is apparently looking for a new home after several years and several albums with long-time label Universal Music Group’s MCA Nashville division, according to Country Weekly.

“[I’m] so appreciative to the wonderful MCA staff for giving me their all from my first days at Decca, through ‘I Hope You Dance,’ the awards for ‘I May Hate Myself In The Morning’ and ‘There’s More Where That Came From’,” Womack said in a statement. “I am excited to see what comes next for so many people I think of as my friends, and am eager to see what life after ‘leaving home’ is like.”

Womack was first signed to Decca Records Nashville when she moved to Music City, later hopping over to Universal Music Group’s MCA Records, where she cranked out five studio albums and many hit singles, including ‘I’ll Think of a Reason Later,’ ‘A Little Past Little Rock,’ her multi-week No. 1 ‘I Hope You Dance,’ ‘I May Hate Myself in the Morning’ and most recently, ‘Last Call.’

It seems like many changes have been happening at Nashville’s various label rosters in recent weeks. Just last month, Josh Thompson went his own way, leaving RCA Records behind. That was just after Kellie Pickler‘s departure from BNA Nashville in June — the same month that Ronnie Dunn turned his back on Sony Music.

No word yet on Lee Ann Womack’s next move, but all of us at Taste of Country wish nothing but the best for her future in country music.
