Trick Pony lead vocalist Heidi Newfield announced Wednesday (Nov. 1) she will be leaving the band at the end of its December tour to pursue a solo career. In a written statement, she said, "I've decided to branch out and try it on my own. It's time for me to follow my heart and take my own path. I hope you'll support me in this decision and stick by me as I start this wonderful new chapter in my career." The band's hits include "Pour Me," "On a Night Like This" and "Just What I Do," all from their gold-certified debut album released in 2001. The band released two albums on Warner Bros. Nashville and one on Curb.
