Garth Brooks Splits With Capitol

Country star GARTH BROOKS and CAPITOL RECORDS NASHVILLE have parted ways, after 16 years together.

Capitol has been Brooks' only label since his career began in 1989 and together they've sold more than 100 million albums, according to the RECORDING INDUSTRY ASSOCIATION OF AMERICA.

Brooks, who recently became engaged to fellow country artist TRISHA YEARWOOD, remained with the label even after he announced his retirement from the music business in October 2000. His last album, SCARECROW, was released in 2001.

Calling it a "mutual agreement", Capitol parent company EMI says in a statement that, while terms of the split are confidential, Brooks has not requested compensation for having his contract terminated.
