Back in June 2015, country singer Katie Armiger and her independent record label, Cold River Records, appeared to have a very public and messy falling out. The label issued statements saying Katie was taking a breather from music, something she wholeheartedly denied.

Now, the 24-year-old Texan is coming clean about what really happened.
