– Twin sisters Kate and Kacey Coppola are off Big Machine Records without ever having released a full-length album, they announced Thursday on their myspace page.
"Kacey and I are no longer with Big Machine," Kate wrote in a message to fans. " It happened a little while back, and it's one of the hardest things we've ever gone through. They weren't wanting to put out new music quite as fast as we were hoping, and for that and other reasons, we decided to move on."
"One of the main reasons why we feel OK with this is because of you guys. You are so supportive of us....regardless of what label we're signed to, what tour we're on, if we have a video on CMT or not. We cannot even begin to express to you how AMAZING and INCREDIBLE and LIFE SAVING you are...thank you thank you thank you from the bottom of our hearts for everything you do for us every single day."
The duo said they "decided to continue and record our music the way we want to. Hope that's ok with y'all. We're going in the studio in the next few weeks, and we'll be putting out our NEW record (cross your fingers!) by late spring/early summer! "
The Coppolas also are thinking of releasing several acoustic sessions they plan to record. "We just want to get as much music to you as we possibly can. Also, we may re-issue a limited number of our very first record, 'Circle Around.' (There are only a few copies left in the vault!)
"We have some shows coming up this spring/summer (Arizona, Kansas, Nashville, and Wisconsin)...and we're toying with the idea of putting together a small acoustic show for our "fan club" during CMA Fest."
The duo released a self-titled EP in January 2009. Their debut single was Dreaming Love, which peaked at 51. They did not release another song for the label.
Prior to signing with Big Machine, Kate and Kacey were contestants on the CMT series "Can You Duet?" where they made it to the semi-finals. "It was one of the most difficult things in our career and one of the most rewarding," said Kacey on ther duo's Big Machine bio. "We are here today because of it, and I think it made us so much stronger."
The Iowa natives, who grew up in Denver, also have enjoyed songwriting success, landing House with No Doorson George Strait's "Troubadour," which they co-wrote with Jamey Johnson.
