Rounder Records

Rounder Records is one of the world's most historic Americana and bluegrass record labels. Along with respected label Sugar Hill, Nashville-based Rounder continues to raise the bar for high-quality roots-based music, with critically acclaimed offerings from iconic artists Gregg Allman, Steve Martin & Edie Brickell, Rush, Vince Gill’s Time Jumpers, as well as promising talents Sierra Hull, I’m With Her, Ruston Kelly, Pokey LaFarge, The SteelDrivers, and Susto, to name a few.

At the center of American roots music for over 40 years, Rounder Records was founded in 1970 and first struck musical gold with the 1975 release ofJ.D. Crowe & The New South (featuring future stars Ricky Skaggs, Jerry Douglas and Tony Rice), this seminal recording revitalized bluegrass music and inspired a generation of artists including Rounder's own Alison Krauss, the most decorated female artist in the history of the GRAMMY® Awards. Her collaboration with Led Zeppelin front man Robert Plant on the album Raising Sand emerged as a major critical success story. It’s been certified platinum and won five GRAMMY® Awards including Album and Record of the Year.
