Music Mondays: Lyric Street Records

In 1997, Disney's Hollywood Records started up a new record label to take advantage of the revitalized popularity of country music. The company chose a name that had a historic tie to Walt Disney. When the Disney Brothers married their wives, they moved into neighboring houses on Lyric Street, so Disney's newest label was called Lyric Street Records.

The label had an amazing initial lineup including SheDaisy and Rascal Flats. The label's success led to the creation of a spinoff that would concentrate on more traditional country music. They used another name that would mean a lot to the world of Disney- Carolwood Records. Walt Disney's final home was located on Carolwood Drive.

Both labels were shutdown in 2010 and combined back into Hollywood Records.
