Katie Armiger of Cold River Records had her website hacked by an unnamed person or group on Sunday. Thousands of ugly messages were sent out to 65,000 of the singer’s fans by the hacker that were vulgar and offensive in nature. No one has yet been named as the parties involved in the breach, but the label has promised the security hole has been fixed since and issued out an apology to her fans today.
“As you may have heard, KATIE’s website was hacked and over 65,000 e-mails went out that were offensive and vulgar. MUSIC CITY NETWORKS has fixed the security breach and hopefully this won’t happen to any other artist. We know who did it and we have his online confession. The hacker’s e-mail targeted KATIE’s fans and did not target Country radio. KATIE is the world’s biggest sweetheart and wants all of her friends and supporters at Country radio to know that she loves and cherishes their outpouring of support and well wishes through this malicious attack.” – Pete O’Heeron, President Cold River Records.
Armiger is set to open for Darius Rucker this Friday in Atchinson, Kansas. Arminger released “Confessions Of A Nice Girl” last year. She’s currently promoting her latest single from the album, “I Do, But Do I?”
