Twin sisters Kate & Kacey Coppola, who burst onto the music scene after competing on CMT's hit TV show, 'Can You Duet,' in 2008, recently revealed their painful decision to leave their record label, Big Machine, earlier this year.

"Kacey and I are no longer with Big Machine," Kate admits on their blog. "It happened a little while back, and it's one of the hardest things we've ever gone through. They weren't wanting to put out new music quite as fast as we were hoping, and for that and other reasons, we decided to move on."

Big Machine is home to several acts, including Taylor Swift, Trisha Yearwood, Jack Ingram and newly-signed comedy act Melissa Peterman.

The label only released one single from the duo, 'Dreaming Love,' that peaked at No. 51 on the charts. A follow-up single was never released, leading to the sisters frustration. Still, they insist that they may be leaving their record label, but they are moving forward with their singing career.

"We've decided to continue and record our music the way we want to," Kate says. "We're going in the studio in the next few weeks, and we'll be putting out our NEW record (cross your fingers!) by late spring/early summer."

Impatient fans won't need to wait for the full album, though. "We're thinking of putting out a couple of 'acoustic sessions' that Kacey and I are going to record," Kate hints. "We just want to get as much music to you as we possibly can. Also, we may re-issue a limited number of our very first record, 'Circle Around.'

They may be shifting gears, but the pair insist they are fine with the changes. "If Kacey and I know anything, it's how to pick yourself up, dust yourself off, and keep going."

Hitting the road this spring, they also say they may appear at this year's CMA Music Fest.
