Brooks has sold more than 100 million albums since starting his career with Capital in 1989, figures from the Recording Industry Association of America show.

Even though he retired after the release of his 2001 album, "Scarecrow," Brooks remained on the Capital roster, Billboard.com said.

In a statement, EMI, the parent company of Capital, said neither side demanded nor took any money to terminate the contract.

"We wish him all the best for the future," Capital Nashville President and Chief Executive Officer Mike Dungan said in a statement.

Brooks is engaged to marry fellow country artist Trisha Yearwood.
