Kinleys, Sony Part Ways

The Kinleys and Sony Music have parted ways after two albums on Epic including the gold-certified Just Between You and Me. Twin sisters Heather and Jennifer were named best new duo or group by the Academy of Country Music in 1998. Their country hits include “Just Between You and Me” and “Somebody’s Out There Watching.” Jennifer Kinley and her husband, songwriter Adam Hughes, are expecting their first child in May 2002, two years after they were married. The Kinleys plan to stay off the road throughout most of 2002 to concentrate on songwriting and family and to get some much-needed rest, a spokeswoman says. They had begun working some with producer Scott Hendricks but will wait to see what direction their songwriting takes before continuing. 11/26/01
