Country Girls' Uta Shimamura Announces Departure From Group
After less than a year with group, Country Girls member Uta Shimamura has announced that she has left the group.

The announcement was made on June 12 on the official Hello! Project website. Shimamura's contract termination is effective immediately.

According to Hello! Project, Shimamura had been discussing her future and issues with her family. It was determined that there was a "void that could not be filled" while she was part of the group, so it was decided that she would leave the group.

"For the remaining members, we accept this reality, and strongly think we need to work harder than ever. To all of our fans, we are sorry and apologize for causing you to worry. The future of Country Girls relies on your help more than ever, so thank you," the remaining group members wrote.

Shimamura joined Country Girls on November 5, 2014. She made her major-label debut with the group on its last single "Itooshikutte Gomen ne / Koi Dorobou" which was released on March 25, 2015.

Country Girls is scheduled to release a new single titled "Wakatteiru no ni gomen ne / Tamera" on August 5. It is uncertain how Shimamura's departure from the group will affect its release and promotions.
