More misery for the majors: Dolly bales

After losing Paul McCartney to a coffee company, the last thing the RIAA needed was another major artist announcing plans to do without them in the future.

Sorry, guys: Dolly Parton's walked now. She's setting up her own label as she doesn't need major support any more. Well, not record label wise:

Her manager Danny Nozell told Billboard: "She's a free agent right now so we decided to go around to the majors to at least see what kind of distribution deals they were bringing in, and didn't see anything I was interested in."

He added: "To be honest, we have the finances the major labels have, and I put together a marketing plan that was way more extensive than any major has brought me."

They don't support their new acts; they don't support their established acts. What the hell are the labels doing with all their money?
