Sellers signs with Warner

– Aubrie Sellers, who released an independent album in January, has signed with Warner Records, she announced today.
"I am so happy to tell y'all I've signed with Warner Brothers," she tweeted.
Sellers, the daughter of Lee Ann Womack and Jason Sellers, released the well-received "New City Blues" in January on Carnival/Thirty Tigers. Sellers referred to the sound of the CD as "garage country." The disc was produced by Frank Liddell, her stepfather.
Sellers said in an interview with Country Standard Time that she decided to put out the disc herself. "I didn't try to get on a label with putting the record out. My original idea was to make the record and shop it around. By the time I finished, I didn't want to take it to labels any more. I was afraid that they'd try to change me."
Since then, she has toured with Delta Rae and others.
