Something weird is happening with Katie Armiger and so far nobody can figure out what it is.
Earlier this week, her record label, Cold River Records, released the following statement:
After nine years of competing at the highest level in country music, Katie Armiger has decided to take a breather and decide her next career aspirations. She has opened for the biggest names in the country music business and headlined two national tours. It has been the thrill of a lifetime to work with her and watch her blossom into one of the best singer-songwriters of her generation. Katie is a special talent and an even better person. Watching her grow and reach for her goals has been so much fun. The night she debuted on the Grand Ole Opry was something that I will never forget! As a label, we love her and support her decision and we will always be her biggest fans. We care deeply for Katie as a person and artist.
So that’s disappointing, right? Katie is a real talent and has invested a lot of time (and money) to get where she is now, and a lot of us were really surprised by this announcement. But then, things went wonky. Katie posted this on Instagram (this was apparently the second time she posted it):
Curiouser and curiouser. From what I can tell, this was posted and deleted multiple times, and it’s not there as of the time of this post. It remains to be seen what will come out of this. As someone said to me, somewhere between their side and her side is the truth. I’ll keep my eyes open and let you know what, if anything, happens from here.
