Abbreviation(s):CR, COY
Sibling Labels:ChaparralRoadrunner
Owner:Don Coy
From Don Coy: Coyote was one of the labels that was under the umbrella of Chaparral. Chaparral began using the Coyote Roadrunner labels in the late 70's. Tom Dillander bought the above labels in the late 1990's. There were not many releases on Coyote in the earlier history. I could find only 5 listed. The first callers to record on Coyote were Scott Smith, Buddy Allison, Bob Newman, Tom Roper and Bob Elling. All of the above recordings have the traditional Chaparral sound. After Tom took over, Elmer Sheffield, Dorothy Sanders (a round dance cuer) and myself were the only caller/cuers to record on Coyote I began producing and recording for Coyote in 2004. In the early days of doing music, I recorded at Hank Bones' studio in Brooklyn, NY. However, Hank decided to move to Asheville, North Carolina. This decision of Hank's left me without a good place to record square dance music. As luck would have it, I finally found a great studio with lots of good musicians in Tennessee so I was back in business. I like the new sound of Coyote and I hope you do, too.

If you have any additional pertinent information about this label, please Contact Debbie.
