Katharine McPhee Dumped By Record Label
January 16, 2008 1:32pm CST
RCA Records announced that they have dropped Katharine McPhee, former American Idol runner-up. Her debut album failed to go gold despite debuting at #2 on album charts in February. A BMG exec said, "Katharine was hot for a few months. But audiences are fickle. We put millions behind Katharine. Many of us at the label still love her songs. But we're in the major leagues. We didn't think she could break into the mainstream. We would rather be honest." Uhoh, hope Katharine didn't read that quote. Are you a McPhan? Do you think she could have made it to stardom if the label hadn't dumped her? Is McPhee's career kaput now? Does she have any chance of not completely fading away?
