It hasn't been long since the Restless Road guys came in fourth place on the recently-cancelled The X Factor, but one of their members has already given up on the trio to start up a solo career. Colton Pack recently made a statement that broke Roadies' hearts and put a major roadblock in what the members of the group worked so hard for throughout the season.
"After much time in thought and prayer, I've come to a decision. At this point in my life, it is best for me to part ways with Restless Road. This was a very difficult decision to make," Colton tweeted. "I feel as if I have done not only what is best for me, but for the guys as well. This was an incredible journey, and I look forward to see where Restless Road goes in the near future. Though I'm not going with them, I will be following them closely."
Although Colton loved working with the guys, he still thinks he can make it as a solo artist.
"Prior to X Factor I was a solo artist. In my heart of hearts I have found it difficult to stray from what I feel is my true calling, a solo artist. We all have a specific path in life, and this is the path I truly feel I must walk," Colton continued. "I want all the Roadies to know that there is no reason other than this that brought me to my decision."
So what do Andrew Scholz and Zach Beeken think about the sudden change to their careers? The remaining duo also sent out a message to their fans on Twitter, ensuring them they're not going anywhere.
"Colton has decided to leave the group. We are going to support his decision. We don’t want you to worry too much. The decision was Colton’s. We didn’t have any arguments or a fall out. We still support each other," they said. "Please know Restless Road is NOT over… We are still going to push forward and we have plans."
