    Boo! Country-pop band Rilo Kiley has officially broken up. Guitarist Blake Sennett told Spinner that he "felt like there was a lot of deception, disloyalty, greed," and the band had reached a point where it could no longer exist under such toxic circumstances. Sounds like it was better to break up than to continue in that crappy fashion, huh? So many bands disintegrate once a certain level of fame is achieved, and the grind of touring, recording and working together creates pressure and toxic environs. So we can't say we blame the band for pulling the plug.

    Even with the split, Sennett plans on personally working on Rilo Kiley's unreleased material.

    R.I.P., Rilo Kiley.

    What is your favorite pop-country act?
