Colbie Caillat moves on.

The 35-year-old singer announced Wednesday that she and her Gone West teammate Justin Young have chosen to disband the country music group.

“After a lot of thought during this time, Justin and I decided to leave Gone West,” the “Bubbly” singer shared on Instagram. “Creative partnerships, especially with friends, can be both rewarding and empowering at times, and while it’s not an easy decision, we know ending the group was the right one. ”

In her post regarding the group, Caillat stressed that she and Justin “will continue to make music together forever” and remain “best friends”.
