Garth Brooks is parting ways with RCA Nashville and releasing his two upcoming albums on his self-owned Pearl Records. “The Tennessean” reports the split happened a few weeks ago. Brooks told the newspaper, “I’ve always enjoyed being part of a team. I think you can always be part of something bigger with a team than you can be by yourself. Would I love to be part of a label group? Sure I would. But with the new streaming income now, I can’t make them money.” Brooks says he’s working on a deal with a big company that might absorb his streaming service, Ghost Tunes. Brooks is hoping to release a solo record and a Christmas duets album with Trisha Yearwood this fall.
