October 2, 2008 – The Record Label Carolwood Records Opens
“We’re trying a bit of a different model as we want to grow with our successes…” – Lyric Street VP of Promotions Kevin Herring
On October 2, 2008, the sister label to Lyric Street Records, called Carolwood, was launched in Nashville, Tennessee. The name was taken from the name Walt Disney gave to his backyard railroad set, the Carolwood Pacific Railroad. The first artist signed to the label was Jessica Andrews, followed by Trent Tomlinson. Unfortunately, the label was shuttered in November 2009, with many of the artists getting shuffled to other Disney labels, including Lyric Street, which itself would close in April 2010.
