About The Label

The still active Mercury Records was formed in Chicago in 1945 issuing recordings in a variety of genres including country music.[5] The Nashville office of Mercury began as a joint venture between Mercury and “Pappy” Daily’s established country music record label Starday Records in January 1957. In July 1958, the Mercury/Starday joint venture was dissolved and Starday record producer Shelby Singleton stayed on with Mercury in Nashville, becoming head of Mercury’s Nashville office by 1961. Singleton left Mercury in 1966 to form his own company which bought Sun Records in 1969. In 1997, PolyGram, which owned Mercury, consolidated all its Nashville operations under the Mercury name. When PolyGram was purchased by Universal Music Group in 1998, the resulting record label consolidations left Mercury under the The Island Def Jam Music Group umbrella making Mercury in the USA dormant until recently, but still active internationally. The consolidations in Nashville which created UMG Nashville kept the Mercury Nashville imprint active. ville
