Sara Evans & Others Exit Sony Music Nashville

Sony Music Nashville has made several roster changes over the past few months.

According to Music Row, the label confirmed that it has parted ways with four artists – Sara Evans, The Henningsens, The Swon Brothers, and Josh Dorr.

Evans, who is known for hits like “Born To Fly,” “Suds in the Bucket,” and “A Little Bit Stronger,” had been signed with RCA imprint for her entire career. Her last studio album, Slow Me Down, was released on RCA Nashville in March of 2014. The album’s title track peaked in the Top 20, while the second single, “Put My Heart Down,” did not land inside the Top 40.

The Henningsens, comprised of Brian Henningsen and two of his children, Aaron and Clara, were introduced to fans via Arista Nashville in 2012 with their debut single, “American Beautiful.” Their self-titled debut album produced another Top 40 hit, “I Miss You,” but no additional singles were released.

America fell in love with The Swon Brothers on the fourth season of NBC’s The Voice. After taking home third place, they signed to Arista Nashville and went on to release their self-titled debut album in October of 2014. The duo saw a decent amount of success with their debut single, “Later On,” but their follow up single, “Pray For You,” didn’t seem to take off. Last week, The Swon Brothers released a surprise EP to fans on their newly created independent label, TSB Records. They are currently on tour with former label mate Carrie Underwood.

Josh Dorr signed to RCA Nashville and released his major-label debut EP in May of 2014. His new single, “Rocket,” is available now.

Sony Music Nashville welcomed CEO Randy Goodman in July of 2015, who joined after former CEO, Gary Overton, exited in March.

The label’s newest signing is viral sensation Kane Brown, who officially joined last week.
