1950 - 1979
Dot Records is an American record label founded by Randy Wood that was active between 1950 and 1979.
In 1957, Wood sold the label to Paramount Pictures, but he remained president for another decade.
The label was reactivated in 2014 through a joint venture between Big Machine Label Group and the Republic Records unit of Universal Music Group (which owns the original Dot Records catalogue). It is based in Nashville, Tennessee.
