Looks like Arkansas's American Idol, Kris Allen, has parted ways with RCA Records, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Allen issued the following statement regarding the split:

I wanted to let everyone know that RCA and I have decided to split ways. I thank them so much for everything that they did for me. There are so many people there that contributed to my becoming the artist that I am and I will miss them all.. In saying that, I am really excited about what is ahead. The path has never been clearer to me. I love what I do and I will never stop. So, to my amazing fans, thank you so much for everything so far but things are only gonna get more fun. I promise.

Well dang.

According to Billboard, Allen's sophomore long-player, "Thank You Camellia," debuted at No. 26 on the album charts, selling 15,662 copies in its first week, compared to more than 80,000 for his 2009 debut's first-week sales.
