Alan Jackson and his record label, Sony Music Nashville, are splitting, according to Fox News Entertainment.

Breaking news! This is big!

The label released a short statement Thursday thanking Jackson for "their long association and many hit records achieved as a result of that association." The release called it "an amicable parting."

The 52-year-old singer has spent most of his recording career on the Sony-owned Arista Nashville imprint, signing a contract in 1989 and releasing his first album in 1990. The partnership has yielded dozens of No. 1 hits for the traditional country singer, the 2003 Country Music Association entertainer of the year.

Wow this is a big shock! Ever since I have been playing Alan Jackson songs he has been with Sony Nashville! I'm sure there is more to the story! Good Luck Alan.
