Oh Boy Records
Oh Boy Records is an independent American record label located in Nashville, Tennessee and founded in 1981 by Grammy Award-winning songwriter John Prine and his longtime manager Al Bunetta. The label has released more than 40 audio and video recordings by singer-songwriters Prine, Kris Kristofferson, Daniel “Slick” Ballinger, Shawn Camp, Dan Reeder and Todd Snider, along with a dozen reissues of classic country music artists.
In 1980, Prine finished his recording contract with Asylum and moved to Nashville. Rather than sign with another label, he decided to start one of his own, and was joined by Bunetta. The new Oh Boy label’s first release was a red vinyl Christmas single with Prine singing “I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Clause” on the A-side and “Silver Bells” on the B-side. The first full-length release was Prine’s Aimless Love in 1984. Over the years, Prine has received offers to purchase the label, but has always decided to remain independent. Oh Boy is the second oldest artist owned independent label in the country, and the oldest in Nashville.
