    I am so excited about this!! Almost all of us have wanted a move for quite some time! I'm so glad she did it! Carrie was not a priority at Sony anymore. Randy Goodman is a GREAT businessman, do not get me wrong, but he has a goal of helping new artists succeed.

    In regards to the ACMs, I see this as a good thing. In my mind, the deal was not sealed when many of the final round votes were coming in. This being said, I'm sure Sony had people voting for her in hopes she would stay and UMG had people voting for her hoping she would join them. I may not be right, but that is my take on it. I'm sure contracts were offered to Carrie and were probably signed late Feb or Early March. This is most likely why ST definitely did not get a 5th single. It would not benefit Sony if Carrie left.

    Once again, I am so happy for Carrie and I feel reenergized as a fan! Onward and upward for CU and Team Carrie!

I mean we all know how loyal she is!!!

    Do you think that Mike D. is at the same level of pull in the industry that Joe G. back in his day???? All down hill for Carrie when he retired.
    For awards, she would still need WME, though Universal might have a bigger pull regardless. But WME would be a key factor for her to recover her award pull.

    Maybe she wanted to release RR first but they say no like they probably say no to CCA that's why she left Sony.

    Right? And she said she had picked another single as lead and Sony forced Smoke Break upon her. She must have gotten so pissed off. 5th album, 10 years, and they force a single upon her? Please!!!

    Fun factor: have you ever noticed how pissed off she looks in the Smoke Break video? LMAAAAAO

    I bet Carrie must have talked to Keith a lot about this especially during their Australian/NZ tour.

    Oh the timing of this is all so fascinating to me. Heading into the ACMs who's the artist that is capturing all the headlines -- CARRIE UNDERWOOD!!! First we have her 100th show at the Opry (and that's no small feat) and now this label changing move!!! Wow BIG stuff happening in Carrie's world!!!

    I bet that idol lawsuit against Sony also played a part in Carrie leaving. According to the lawsuit idol artists, including Carrie and Kelly Clarkson, had been shorted millions from Sony. Kelly has already left them.

    I don't think so. Just this past weekend she chose to sing it at the Opry. SB is a wonderful song and a much better lead single the RR( which I suspect Carrie thought would lead) would have been.


    SN has been pushing everyone and their mother over Carrie for so long.I mean they couldn't even scare up a single spin to get her #1 on BB for DL. Pitiful.It'll be nice to be on a label that will actually pay her attention.

    Im not talking about the song, I like SB. Im talking about her label picking SB as a lead single.

    Aside from the #1 BB pushes and lack of support on the Award shows, I don't think Carrie was mistreated by Sony. She said that she fought to get CB as a single and they obliged. The problem was that Sony could of pushed more for Carrie but bc she was so constint and still an A+star, they gave attention to other artists or went with the crowd (Miranda is still the only female on WME, so don't be shocked if she wins FV).

    ALSO Carrie fought for NO REMIX and SONY honored it; I highly doubt she will want to now.

    They also got Carrie a CMA EOTY nom but freaking WME gave it to Garth.

    We will see how thing turns out. I hope it's all for the best.

    AND I WANT CARRIE TO HEADLINE SB O HER OWN,NO KEITH PLEASE!!!!!
