Nashville Album Discography
By David Edwards, Mike Callahan, and Patrice Eyries
Last update: May 17, 2002

The Nashville label was a Starday subsidiary. At first (1964-65), it tended to have the bluegrass and gospel artists, but by 1966 drifted into being a clone of Starday itself, with the artists appearing on both labels.

The Nashville label was orange with black printing, with the Nashville logo on top. Early labels had a logo consisting of box with "NASHVILLE" in block letters at the top, and "A PRODUCT OF STARDAY RECORDS" around the bottom of the label. This soon gave way to the better known Nashville logo, which was a black oval with a diagonal stripe with "NASHVILLE" in block letters, and five stars outside the stripe within the oval. Writing around the bottom of the label changed later to "A PRODUCT OF STARDAY RECORDING & PUB CO., INC., BOX 125, MADISON, TENNESSEE." After Starday bought King in 1968, the legend under the logo read 'A PRODUCT OF STARDAY-KING, BOX 8188, NASHVILLE, TENNESSEE 37207", and these did not have any writing around the bottom of the label. Many, if not all, issues were called "Special Collectors Editions," for reasons known only to the record company.
