"I'd like to thank ShowDog universal for doing the right thing," Joe tweeted. "I'M FREE!!!!!"
"My plans are to make a record with people I trust and love and be at a happy home (label)," he added. "Haven't feel this good about things in a long time."

"Just 2 be clear, I'm VERY thankful 4 showdog and what they have done 4 me," he tweeted. "Our relationship has just reached its limits and I wish them luck."
